the bike b n lowerd shouldnt make any difference. besides skiing is one of the easyst stunts u can do. although kikn back up onto the seat might b a lil tricky cuss say ur going 60 mph sking n u mash ur toes to the ground to hard. your legs will literaly go flying up behind you. so wen ur learning to plant your toes to get your legs to kik up onto the seat by it self it would b a good idea to take it "real" easy at first depending on how fast your going. n remember its a lil harder to brake wen your sking. i was going around 90 mph in the pic in my avatar. not that its hard or anything. i would say wheelies are alot harder although i can do both.. ;]

So what's your method for getting back on, do you kick your feet up or do you put your left foot on the peg first to lift you up?

kicking up seems to look better and a faster method of getting back on, but fucking up could be costly lol.

Looks like I don't have bigger shot of that one. I could swear I had a full size shot of it but I guess I don't anymore.

Do you use a throttle lock for that trick?

Well I didn't on that bike but the 01 GSXR-1000 does have a fast idle that works just as well . I also just ordered a set of Throttle Meister bar ends that double as a cruise control! I can't wait to get home and try them out.

lol...well i tried my first sketch. stupid me. i got off fine...sketched fine....crosswind hit, my ribs fell off the tank and onto myseat. i got scared, i tried to get back on, i couldnt. i ended up with my head down by my rear brake, and my feet straight out the left side of my bike ... saw my self starting to drift to the median, used every ounce of strength to swing my lower body back around, and back on my seat. i got it. i look back at a trail of piss on the road where i just came from....not really but there should of been. i got a high five from my friends...and totally played it off like i meant to do that... i think i called it "sketching, into a limp noodle on a bike" manuver bahaha hopefully next time its smoother. and btw i was goin 75'ish at the time takin peeps advice for it bein' smoother at that speed.

I think the speed that you was going is what saved you because if you would have been going alot slower, that bike would have been completely off balance, but from the sound of it, that's one hell of a save. My friend almost [email protected] up this past weekend while trying to get back on the bike from skiiing, its's a fairly easy trick but you have to take your time when doing it, if your new to it

Ok i think you either don't have the upper body that you need or you are putting way to much weight on your feet. I mucked it up once the road was wet which I reckon makes it easy but my feet ended up out the front of the bike i managed to pull the front brake got it back down to running speed and jumped on adrenelin was pumping lol.

^ True, running beside bike turns cool looking biker into biggest looking newb.
Been there, just gotta make sure you regulate how much pressure goes on your feet. Only wannt put enough pressure where your feet are skitching over road surface, don't actually want to stand with all your weight.

Skiing

Nice pics..
I tried to ski once, and it really didnt turn out to good

so now i only wheelie and endo, ive never tried to ski again, its been 2 1/2 years since i crashed tryin to ski lol.

and i still havent attempted to do it again.

it seems a wee bit more dangerous then wheelie'ing and plus.. wheelies are so much easier

Get some heelys makes things a lot easier and then you can jump off the back of the bike and hang on to the passanger pegs and roll instead of ruin your new Air jordans.

idk why, but of all things skitching just scares the living shit out of me. I seen a video of a guy skitching backwards, INFRONT of his bike. some foreign guy with a weird accent. Rides with Jason Britton from iCon.

I agree, skitching is by far easier than wheelies in my opinion. I learned how to skitch in 2-3 days. I have been attempting wheelies for 2 yrs and just recently learned how to clutch 2ng gear.
