    No Time To Die bike jump

    Whoever this rider is, he's got some huge brass, and a hella medical plan to inspire confidence.

    No doubt it was all precisely calculated beforehand but impressive, none the less. Flying motorcycles is fun but not for the faint hearted or indecisive. There's definitely a "point of no return" so you have to be willing to totally commit or "go for it", as they say. In most situations, you know as soon as you leave the ground or just a moment before, how it's gonna' end and if it's lookin' bad......there really isn't squat you can do about it.

    I like how that group of clergy and holy people are walking by the bike jump as if nothing special is happening. Great jump and good riding.

    And the key question is, how well can the real time rider make the performance match the calculations? They can measure the departure angle pretty well on the vertical axis, but other important factors aren't as well controlled. The bike/rider mass is pretty precise, and they can take a last minute measurement and refine the calculations. But the actual speed when he leaves the ramp and the precise angle in the horizontal plane are factors the rider controls (and can therefore screw up!) until the last second when the wheels leave the ramp. I'd want a painted stripe on the ramp (keep your tires here, and only here!) and a range of speeds that will result in a safe outcome. The interesting part about the range of speeds is how difficult it would be to practice precisely hitting that speed. If you've ever compared 0-60 on a flat road to the 0-60 on a steep on ramp, you have a bit of an idea, and that ramp is far steeper than any on ramp. They could take some of the guesswork out of that by calculating the starting point that enables the rider to just keep it wide open from start to ramp's end. The major variable that leaves is how precisely he shifts gears.

    Or it may just be a case of "I can't do the math to calculate the necessary angle, speed, and point of release, but experience tells me I can throw that strike every time."
