    My pics were took on the first time I tried to jump with the 990, I was not use to balance a bike. With practice now I can anticipate the jumps and how the bike will react and I always land on the rear wheel just a few millisecond before the front.

    Practice, practice, practice... I have just one tips: put the weight on the back, the front wheel is the first one to take over so the first one to start landing, you have to counter-balance this.

    Am I wrong ?

    Technique is critical: Proper body postion, i.e. off the seat, on the pegs, rider weight biased toward the back of the bike, slightly bent at the knees. Elbows pointed out - with a 'loose' grip on the bars. Learn the precise moment when to shut-off the throttle on the jump. As soon as the back wheel clears, gently release the throttle. This will keep the momentum forward - and ensure the front wheel stays higher than the back wheel. Aurel's pic of the front wheel dive suggests he chopped the throttle too soon - which pitches all the weight/momentum forward - and ends up in a nose dive. And there are 'methods' you can employ if the whole deal goes wrong. If the nose it too low, wick the throttle open while simultaneoulsy pulling up on the bars to bring it up. If the front wheel is too high - lightly tap the rear brake to bring it down.

    Now for the final question: When contemplating doing jumps/doubles/tabletops/etc. - is the 4 seconds of rush worth the 4 months in a body cast if all goes south ?

    Let's see your answers by 'age demographic' - staring with the Senior riders first !

    Jumping in lower gear will get that front wheel up. (and pushing the gas in tha air too).
    In higher gear (or shutting the gas), the front wheel will come down.
