Not unless it's a government building or the people who own the parking lot have asked you to leave. It's private property and out of their jurisdiction, in all likeliness they will ask you to move along though.

Save your wheelies for the street, YWB love them.

Dr. Theo oh man i am a pic and video whore shit thats gonna make me go spend money

so where are the sv guys when you need em they all seem to know where you can buy 5 of them and a bag of chips for what ever you paid for yours
08-02-2006 11:20 PM
Odysseys well let me know when you go pratice ill be your picture taker and video guy for you.



08-02-2006 11:16 PM
Dr. Theo yeah i hear you man, but i think i will find a cheap sport bike to learn on, i am not gonna try on my mille any more really, i really like the bike and i dont want to fuck it up, but it is hard to resist picking the front end up, when i am just out and about in the city

i am thinking control is control, throttle control, break control, balance point control, body posistion etc.

then each time we move to another bike we still learn the same issues but we master them faster on that bike because of our previous skills.


thats my opinion.

my other is learn to ride really good on a street bike before you try to push the limits of a street bike.

maybe i am all wrong but i think it works for me in my situation.

others my vary.


what do you think nick?

you were a good rider, then went into stunting, and now your interest is track riding.



all in all, i think its you and you only theo how much effort and "pain" for all the crashing your going to do that will make your efforts and how far you push for them.


i am not here to change your mind i am just trying to give advise.

08-02-2006 11:06 PM
Odysseys how about a dirt bike?

i am thinking, light weight, tons of torque, cheap body work and is cheap as hell to replace if you wanted. and dirtbikes are made for a trashing.

maybe thats the best bet for you to learn on.



08-02-2006 10:52 PM
Dr. Theo i really would not mind a cheap stunt bike, but have no idea what to get, and by cheap i mean 1500 or so, and i dont car about cosmetics, all i care is that it runs well, i was thinking like an sv650 or something what do you guys think?
08-02-2006 01:51 PM
ChiefBD I may try this school, I just hate the idea of destroying my bike learning.
08-02-2006 01:48 PM
EndlessRR Or practice on perfecting balance on a mountain bike. I'm practicing stoppies on my MB then once i perfect it i will implement that skill onto my RR.

EndlessRR I dunno how to wheelie either but i've been told that it's better to clutch. I'm still scared to so i'm starting off slow and powering it up in first, just to 'gauge' my 'oh shit' meter. As stated above, i wouldn't want to stunt a RSV. Your bike though....

anybody here go stunting and would not mind if i tagged along?
PM me if you like, thanks alot
theo
If youre serious, and have an extra $375 you can learn in a controlled environment on someone elses bike.....

edit: well actually, you could since you know what you're doing. I don't think you would have tried to learn on a bike like that, though.

+1 and from the way I've seen you massage that thing longingly in downtown naperville I dont think your gonna like the scratches your gonna get from this type of activity.



08-02-2006 12:40 PM
NAZ 1. learnin slow stuff....get a FI or 905 cage
2. to make it more stable run like 15 psi while learnin slow stuff
3. be prepared to damage ur bike eventually
4. learn at your own pace, and have fun

I'll get flamed for this but if you are talking about anything other than 1st or 2nd gear monos, you are going to have to clutch up either of your bikes - Doing that takes long empty straights - Hence my love for 94 @ 7:30 am on a Sunday - I feel as if I have more control in a 2nd gear "pop" up or a 3rd clutch up - Still learning the Busa's bal points but would love the old tiller (rest her soul) in 2nd's and hard as fuk with a clutch and a tug up in 3rd
