SV airtime.

Jumping the SV during Scottish Trials at the local BMW rally. Rear wheel came off the ground a couple feet. Landed great.

Re: SV airtime.

You're at the peak of the hill and your front end is much much higher than the apex of the vertices. That's a wheelie, not a jump.

Nice grab though.

There was a small "jump" behind the crest of the hill. Basically a 2x12 balanced on a cinder block. There wasn't any wheelie involved. This isn't the first time I've competed on the SV in this event.

The SV jumps really front heavy. You'll want to wind it out in the air as the weight of the engine pulls the front wheel down quick.

My helmet is the new Arai Whicker. Woven grasses will be replacing carbon fiber in most industrial applications shortly. Ducati is working on a frame of woven wheat and rye grasses for the 2015 season.
