Basics of Stoppies

Since we have a thread for wheelies, thought it appropriate to put one up for stoppies...

Thats cool that your not going to do it for a while. You should never try to do a stunt if your not comfortable with it. Thats just causes problems. Mainly on our self when we do that. Smart riding.
