It's for the vehicle pursuits.
I was thinkin' Rosa's toolshop bridge or off of the Golden Gate, maybe?

Off the top of Top Notch Toolworks. You can't get the 1080 off the bridge, you run into the island when you try.

Close, if you go to the top, where the data recorder is, hop on the rock, go around back, and you will see a platform that you can launch to the right of the bridge... It is a bit of a run way... and if you launch off there you will easily get it!

There is a road with a sign at the end of a long straight climbing road that reads " Jump at your own risk", over the edge is a longer, steeper declining slope. I imagine that's a great place to jump.

there was a place near Muir during the Beta that was great. You had to climb the hills up fairly far, but there's a real nice natural ramp there. I nailed all three spins, plus the distance jumps all at once on that one.

When I get in later I'll try to get some screen caps of the map location, etc.. for you, unless one of the folks that posted it during Beta beats me to it. :)

Yep, a huge rock that is to the right of the top of Muir dam. It overlooks the area and you can nail it easy ramping off of there. To be honest, there are a ton of places to do this. If you go to the top of the mountains SW of the Crater bar, you can literally pull off 10 full rotations easily for insane trickage!

I used the hills around the coastline in the north-east part of the map.

I've got about 7 races left to gold medal for the black challenger. :)

:edit:

Had to stop trying this evening as the UI was lagging. It started loading the waypoints slow and then stopped loading them entirely.

Use the hannibal.
