Trying Stunts

How many of us out there try to do stunts from time to time or just ride to be riding? I myself, I like to do a wheelie from time to time.

you know what happens when you try to do a wheelie there buddy, huh :shock:

Not me, Im content just riding fast whenever I can..thats enough thrills for me..im not ready to practice stunts, and sacrifice my bike and/or myself while im learning..now if anyone wants to give me a junker ride to practice on, I'll be happy to take it off your hands.

I thought the same thing till I laid the bike down once. Now with the scratchs, I figure it's the best time to give er a try...

I'm still learning to ride a wheelie. . I can get the wheel up pretty good and to the balance point, but then I bring it right back down. I don't feel comfortable trying it that often, at least, not until I get a steering damper.

Yes it looks alittle big. However, it has to be to hold all the power it has under neith to allow doing wheelies easier. LOL

Just try a wheelie, it not the same rush as dragging a knee but it is fun.

Practicing is fun, just make sure you stay in 1 piece while you learn
