Once or twice on accident... I would never try them on purpose cause on my 9R I could never stand flat footed enough to trying to catch a bike that would be tippin over.

I thought I would practice on my mountain bike. I tried one in front of my then 8 year old daughter. Well I ended up with a handlebar gouge in my chest, and a large serving of humble pie.

It's true, you can't teach an old dog new tricks!

They sort of do. It still hurts if you crash.

I really havent done too many on the SV. The brakes arent that good and I have to redo them all anyways so I would rather not take the chance.

Finally back on 2 wheels
