My First Stoppie and important info before u try.

Ok so it probalby was oinly a few inches up, but it came up and made the cool suspension sound they make coming back down.. i was happy.. did a few more.... Then tried it in a diffrenet spot.. the road wasnt that smooth.... DONT DO EM ON ROUGH ROADS.


U need a smooth road thats not brand new with oils.... but smooth provides traction... on the rough road the brakes locked nad the tire squirmed....not a very confident feeling.. my legs went stright out and i let off and it came down ok, but scary....

Moral.. USE GOOD ROADS.. Smooth but at least a few monthes old with decnet traffic so u get the mostgrip u can.

It's not a good idea to do them in a parking lot either...when I was practicing earlier this year I hit a slick spot, and my front tire slid...I didn't crash but I learned a quick lesson.

You mean like, "I've crashed enough that I ought to know better than to even be trying this?"

Another good way to not F up your bike by doing stoppies is to NOT DO THEM.

You should practice going toward a big wall this way you will never go over.
Just Kidding. It is a rediculas stunt as it is to me. It looks cool but even the ones who have done it a lot screw up.

My buddy (who doesn't ride anymore...but anyway...) had one come up just a little too far on him. The result: huge softball sized burn on his leg from the hot ass exhaust. OUCH.

I would pay to see a chopper on standing on the front wheel. THAT would be killer.

Stoppie????
You could see how many feet you can slide the front tire before dumping it.
