I wish my camera was fast enough to get a sequence. A.C. Farias started doing it as far as I know. Alex Flores has started working on them and it looks pretty hot!

About 3/4 thru the 180 he grabs the brake hard and it throws the bike over. Alex can get a pretty sick roll-back after he does this too~!

Hehe. I often wish I could at least do a wheelie. Nothing drastic mind you, but it would be nice to just pull the tire for a few feet.

Take the bike up to 10K rpms full throttle in first gear and shift into 2nd. The front wheel will come up. Mine does and Im sure you weigh alot less than I do. Just make sure you shift quickly so the RPMs dont drop off when you pull the clutch in.

I have always wondered, what is the point of gloves with no jacket? I am serious, I see people do this a lot. What is the thought process behind it?

A very good one because with low speed tricks the things your sure to hurt is your hands when you try to catch yourself. Also if you dont feel like building calluses on the sides of your thumbs form the grips it will prevent you from getting blisters

I guess it makes sense with low speed stunting. I guess I need to question people up here more since I see it a lot with high speed cornering at the gap.

ya, blisters and road rash. even at faster speeds when you go down road rash is bareable on the arms, you get it on your hands and it's a huge problem (IE: can't wipe ass). doing the gap.....well, not sure about that, haha.

but ya, you'd be surprised the harsh wrecks that my gloves have saved my hands with. plus it just feels weird riding without gloves.

That explains why you would wear gloves, which is obvious to me. The question remains, why not wear a jacket? Even a meshy isn't much hotter than a t-shirt.

Comes with confidence I suppose. Doing tricks the rider feels he has on lock they'll ride without full protection alot of the times. When trying new tricks or on a new bike.. that's a different story. The professionals always wear gear when they know they are pushing themselves.

That's what I've seen anyways.

ya, if i'm rocking something i've done a lot i won't wear a jacket. i always put on a jacket if i'm learning something, no matter how hot.

a jacket might not seem like much, but doing parking lot stuff it gets SUPER hot. the bike doesn't get air so it's running constant 225 under you and if it's 90 outside it's stupid hot. i love my jacket, but when i'm almost about to fall out from heat stroke i ditch it. after riding a lot you get used to crashing so you learn how to "get off" without getting busted up.

Learning to fall is the key to doing many things without getting flucked up... motorcycles, bicycles, skateboards, etc...
