Stuntin' or Kneedraggin'

I know I'm still a rookie and I'm not suppose to do this, but I can talk about it at least. Which is harder to do? Which is more fun? Which do you guys preffer? I have had my bike in some good curves but I'm not ready to drag, hard enough gettin use to leaning. As goes for stuntin', I want to make sure I can handle two tires before I try one.

to me kneedraggin or at least hanging the curves is more fun. To me riding a wheelie at 100mph on a public road is just plain stoopid and just begging to get hurt/killed. Now for as stunting in a closed control environment (swept of debris etc.) is fun to watch, I dont wont to do it but One reson alot of us dont think dragging a knee on the street is as bad as stunting is because it can be done w/o breaking the speed limit (not in all cases) and doesnt endanger others (unless speeding). But even still its safer n smarter to take it to the track. But we all know how we are when we have skills, we like to use em n show off, after all WE ALL are human, well maybe not OSP but hes still kewl in my book

Most everyone on here will tell you knee dragging ... but if you watch Super Bike TV and they just had a bunch of pros from diffrent aspects of bike riding.. and they all seemed to like and agree that Stunting is very fun and very difficult .. All i know is Stunting is a lot of fun to watch ..

I dont think anyone will argue that stunting requires alot of skill. just not a risk I am willing to take at my age

I like to watch both. I don't think I'll be ready for either for a while.

Drag racing? I might could get down with that if I had a Busa. I don't mind watching, but I don't have the guts to use spray on a bike like those guys.

Kneedragging = same level as lame easy stunts, being a good corner carver would be the same as high level stunting, being a racer quality carver would be harder than stunting.

kneedragging is much easier than stunting. stunting requires more balance and throttle control. kneedragging is considered the gentleman's sport while stunting is more ghetto.

kneedragging on the streets is also more dangerous than stunting on the streets. kneedragging requires high speed. wheelies can be done at low speeds.

cloverleafing gets one used to the lean angles. stunting requires a few bailouts to get it perfected. on the street, i totaled a few bikes on the twisties. for stunting, the damages were repairable at low cost.

i also do dirt (hill climbs) and drag. off road (motocross) is by far the most physically demanding.

kneedragging doesn't require high speeds, I can do it slow speed on the streets. It just requires a tight turn. I have done it in neutral with speed acquired only from coasting.

i stand corrected, hairpin kneedrags don't require high speeds. I for one avoid low speed kneedragging (for street, tire temp may not be at optimum).

I agree, I limit my kneedragging. I do it a lot on the dragon though.
