Props to you Bikerboy. Keep practicing and you will ride them farther. And like Ninjarider said, wear your gear. Oh yeah, have you noticed that clunking sound when your back tire lands on the ground? If you don't want to hear that noise everytime just push your back brake while in the air to stop the rear from spinning. The noise is b/c your rear wheel is spinning and when it lands it comes to an abrupt stop which makes the chain slap.

Same thing happened to me one time Vinny. That's how I got my custom curved brake lever. When I was first learning, I didn't realize that if you got the rear up quickly and looked straight ahead the rear will not come around on you.

When I looped my bike, I was lucky enough to have a carbon fiber pipe on it. It just broke off at the inlet where the rivets hold it in place. I cut about an inch off of it, drilled new holes, and put new rivets in. Amazingly that little fix alone saved me about $350. Good thing b/c it costs me another $350 to fix everything else with parts off E-bay.

From what I herd , you are suppose to use your front btake to warm the brakes before you bring the abck wheel up. On the topic of parts does any one know where I can find a left side fairing for a 03636. I snapped the blinker right off the fairing. SOOOooooooooooooooo Pissed.....:(:(
