The most I've done is 6. That's pretty much the most I've seen around here that is feasible. The rest turn after that, have a small landing before another quick drop, or are too insanely large for me.

13 for me in front of the Lincoln Memorial in DC. Probably did it ten or twenty times. Finally my front forks bent out about 4 inches on a landing and I never did it again. Not worth trashing forks just to bunnyhop a bunch of stairs.
