i can almost do them. i started off just going off a small jump onto flat ground and just practiced getting the leg over. i would land on one leg on the foot peg. after i could do that smoothly i moved up to a jump and tried it. i landed sitting on my leg a couple of times but its not too hard.
that becomes true when the fast cornering wins you races. i agree do that first. i did it when i first got my bike and was just messin around. now i rarely do tricks except for no handers across the finish line when i win! :nener:
i know how you feel. when i first got my bike i would try tricks a lot until i went to the practice track of this guy who used to race professional. he helped me a lot. everytime i would do a trick he would stop me and asked me when am i going to pass a guy or get a speed burst doing that in a race. so i stopped.
o by the way the guy i trained with is coming back to professional racing. he was out with a knee injury. his name is chase whitton. he races a kxf450. is there a race at las vegas or somewhere in march? thats when i heard his first race will be, i could be wrong though.
