Re: Stopies

Question: At BP are you making a lot of body position shifting? Forwards and backwards with your torso? Or are you just manipulating the brake lever only.

Sometimes I come up nice and it feels like BP but it's not. But, my form is good, I think. Head up looking forward to where I want to go. Slightly off the seat with minimal brake input. But I tend to shift my body around a lot.

My second pic is almost perfect form. I need to look up a bit more bit good other than that. I'm not at bp in either pic. Still a little low but that is a safe height for me to roll at unless I'm really pushing for distance. Only time I use front or back body movement is in the pick up I pull up with my knees or when I start going over frontwards and have to such close to the bike. <-- not fun. Haha other than that its pressure on the bars and tank to steer

Re: Stopies

Sounds like my pick up is good then, I do the same thing with my body and knees. So I can assume that I'm nowhere near BP then. That's a relief cause I can get over the mental block of flipping it.

I just need to bring it up higher intially rather than plowing into it then rolling.

More practice........

I have yet to flip a strait stoppie. I roll over the front sometimes doing a 180 or get tossed doing kangaroo but the strait ones I've been lucky.

Re: Stopies

Show off!!!!!!!!!

Do you recommend a steering damper? I know I need one but I'm only/still approaching at 30-40 mph.

Heard you only need them once you approach at 50+mph.

Re: Stopies

Damper is deff a good idea. I was rolling 200+ without tho. Just low pressure helps keep the shake out.

And turn in super hard jab brakes hold on.

Re: Stopies

This is a start to a kangaroo. At this point I just grab the brake hard and it whips around and get about 8" of air.
