Common sense

I'm not a stunter myself - knee dragger in training - but I have to ask this question. Why on earth do people not take off all their fairings and mirrors when they are learning to stunt? Wouldn't that make the most sense? They obviously aren't going to look cool learning to do anything so why risk expensive plastic?

You got a point, but most people learning to stunt have POS bikes already. A few more scratches or missing peices of plastic wouldn't matter.

most likely they don't take off their fairings for the same reason that I see some stunters doing high chairs and tankies or surfing on the seat and not wearing a helmet. Mamma always said stupid is as stupid does.... and sometimes stupid does stunts.....
