I'm going to move this to Wardy's Riding Technique forum. You will get more responses in the correct forum.

I believe that this same question has been asked in that same forum fairly recently. There were some good responses. You can use the search function to help you locate previous threads that might cover the subject of Whips.

what i do is i pick a pretty steep jump and start to throw the bike over when i hit the very top of the jump, like you're fixin to go into a berm. then twist a little and push your bars to get your bike to turn more. when i whip it, my bike pretty much comes back around on its own, but when i throw really sick ones, i weigh the peg on the side thats whipped out and push with my legs to get it back around. trust me, whipping isnt something you just go out and do, it takes time to learn how to do it without bustin it. trust me......i lost some more ribs when i first started learnin hehe...hope this helps.

I'm going to tell you the easiest way I know how to do a tail whip! All you do is take a jump that is at least 7' tall and 30' long (at least.) Then you try different speeds on the jump to where you clear the jump almost every time. Then you take the jump again and in the air twist your handle bars(which every way is easiest) and make your body do a smooth tail whip motion, and staighten out before you land!

Sincerely,
Eric

i have been doing small whips over my 35 foot double in my back garden on my 85. all i do is just lean the bike over and twist my body look back most of the time. i hope this advise helps you.

Here's another I just found from a couple of years ago on the same jump but the track is going in the other direction. http://wopr.myftp.biz/pics/2%20Riding%20pics/Joe-Jumpin'%204.jpeg
