If by any chance the bike cuts out while performing a jump, what should one do???
I very much doubt that one could start the bike in mid air!!!

What I do is pull the clutch in to land and then let it out to bump-start the bike. Keep going.

Thanks for the advice Shane.
Have you come off because the bike has stalled in the air?
Could you reply to my other posts.

What you do is squeeze the clutch and gas and when your back wheel hits let out of the clutch and youll keep goin.

would the spinning of the rear tire in the air, with no friction with the ground be enough to bump start in mid air?
stupid question from stupid enduro rider, but just curious

Probably not, but more important if you suddenly stop the rear spinning I think the effect could be the same as appliying the rear brake (is this why you stall in the first case?) and send the front down.

hey Swallow, do you know of any tracks near Capetown. I go down there quite a bit and would love to get some 'sunny riding' in.
I've looked for bike shops in town but there are very few apart from that really cheesy Harley dealer who doesn't seem to understand that people actually ride bikes outside of their driveway.
Thanx......
