Chuck - speed bumps and burgers. Nasty combo. I have a friend that lives in an apartment complex with those nasty lil boogers - and they aint that big either. I have to slow to a crawl or duck walk to get over them without scraping something (I wonder what scraped the first few times...? :roll: ) Oh well - since we are driving the Jag XKE equivalent of a motorcycle we'll just have to know our ground clearance ain't that great! :wink:
Sometimes, they don't stretch all the way to the curb... If you're the daring sort and believe the instructors when they told us "look where you want to go and the bike will go there", then you could try to squeeze between the curb and the speed bump. :shock:
In the MSF course, we're taught to raise up off the seat slightly -- the bump won't jar you as much as you're likely to stay in better control. After you get over the speedbump, you can sit back down completely.
