    I went air borne once on a Kawasaki Concours motorcycle. They are a little too heavy to do that with. The steel plate had been knocked off a section of road that was being worked on and I didn't see it because of poor visibility. The same truck that pulled the plate off knocked the barricades off of the road. There was a police officer working an accident at the site where a car had damaged it's wheel assembly. He said he saw daylight under both wheels when I stopped.
    Honk if you love Jesus.

    Text if you want to meet him.

    Any damage to the bike?

    When I "flew" my '78 Camaro (by accident; I came up on a hilly section of road and was going just fast enough...) the front end came crashing down with great force and the result was the front chin spoiler got ripped off, both fenders (and the hood) had crinkles in them, the engine tossed two belts - and I hit my head (hard!) on the roof.

    PS: If you watch the "Dukes of Hazzard" clips closely, you'll sometimes see the front end of the General Lee folding up as the car's suspension fully compresses on impact.

    Cars were not meant to fly!

    Airborne in a car. I've actually done it a few times.

    On the back roads to my father house was, still is, a perfect hill for flying.

    The shape couldn't be better.

    Anything over 75mph would get you off the ground, then you would glide over the crown of the hill and land really nicely on the the down slope.

    The height was not as impressive as the distance you would travel.

    I've never done it in a big car though, only small beaters.

    Wouldn't even think about it in my toy car!

    That is almost exactly like the one I was mentioning, but far more aggressive.

    What an awesome jump! Two thumbs up.. That jump has a serious "oh shit factor."

    What are the tags to embed a youtube video?
    I know you posted them before, but I forgot.

    You see everything after the equals sign in the url.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FmFovYnt6WU

    This part: FmFovYnt6WU

    Place that in the middle of this [youtube]FmFovYnt6WU[//youtube]

    Only use one "/" in the closing tag.

    I used two for explanation purposes.

    If you can master this your technical skills are greater than E-roc's! HA

    OK, embed the value of the v querystring inside youtube tags. Got it.
