and if you want my i say screw the vid for now and just go out and start doing it tomorrow. you'll probably have it even before i do the shop. i didnt expect this to come up in SL, and since it has i've laid it out.

another thing is you might want to trick out the ECU and slacken up the throttle response if your FI. its tricky getting used to using your left hand and backwards to control the juice...although once the rear is off the ground it doesn't matter

From someone who has been working on switchback endos, can ride on his fender switchback, and above all, has a firm grasp of bike control.

There is NO way you're doing this rolling by yourself. This is something you posed for a photo. To loop a fender-switchback endo and catch it is something that not only has yet to be done. But poorly attempted at best by the worlds top riders.

That said, I don't care what you do for fun. But don't come on here and lie to us like we're a bunch of idiot squids who don't know anything about physics let alone motorcycles. Is it possible? Yes, by all means, have you done it, no. Not to say your going to get a lot from this community of misfits, but have some respect.

This bullshit is about as thick as some of the leach riders sponsor resumes.

Maybe I don't know how things work around here but I haven't seen the guy show any disrespect yet. In fact the guy seem like he's trying to share his knowledge and all most people are doing is busting his ***** for it. Maybe the guy didn't know he couldn't do it? I mean I'm not saying he did or didn't and maybe he's a squid but I do think it's possible. Granted there's a lot of weight difference between a bicycle and a sport bike, but the principle is the same and back in the day I used to rock this move constantly on my bike (bicycle) all the time. I'd hit the brake and up the back end would come. The problem was it would go sideways if I didn't keep it pretty straight which didn't happen much after I got good, and I have seen guys do very similar things on dirt bikes so why should this be all that much different? I'd rather keep an open mind about it than just say it can't be done. Just my 2 pesos.

I was speaking of the respect you give elders. The way we all didn't to our teachers. As in, don't tell me you didn't eat the paste Jimmy, its all over your lips.

Like I said, it can be done, but to come on here after your fake photo was posted and say you did it is stupid.

He said rear brake if you're going backwards down a hill on a bicycle. I gather it was supposed to be an example. I got what he meant right away because I used to be heavy into BMX. Often I'd come down the ramp backwards and rear brake it in the middle to bring it up and swing it around the other way. I also used to ride on the front pegs and I could ride it for a distance. When I pinched the front brake the back would come up and I'd grab the seat.
