Sketching/Skiing and other stunt pics.

Someone explain this to me. I've never tried it. I think it would be easy behind your bike but how do you keep your feet from coming out from under you when your on the side. Looks hard as hell.

Skitching on the side of your bike is definatly easier than doing a wheelie. Now its a different story doing it behind the bike.
Usually people learn to skitch before they learn to wheelie, I did, but I haven't done it for a while. The good stunters tend to say that skitching next to your bike is for squids, when really, they're right. Anyone can skitch, it just takes some balls the first time you do it, doesn't take much skill at all.
Skitching behind the bike is not concidered a squid trick, especially if your gurilla rolling into it, or droping into it from a head stand.

So how do you get back on, which foot goes on the peg first? I know I can get off but getting back on seems like a task lol.

if you are skiing to the left of the bike, put your left foot on the peg first when getting on. your feet should look like an "X" with the left crossing the right. and if you ski to the right(which seems harder to me) reverse everything mentioned above.

Ok thanks, it would seem like you would put your right foot back on the peg since its the closet to the bike(When skiing on the left) but you run into the problem of getting that right foot bike on the right side of the bike, and things could get ugly haha.

Another question how do you guys do that, when you have all types of potential hazards in the roads, like indentations, potholes, cracks and crevices, you know the little things that makes the roads unstable? Do you just lift your feet up when you see something like that? It would seem like the obvious thing to do since most of your weight is supported by the tank.

you can hold yourself up with your toe just barely skimming the ground...

i learned in my cul-de-sac... went like 15, clicked it into N and hopped off, braked to a stop. then figured out how to climb back on.. its left foot first but its gotta be just a hop-back-on, you cant try push off the ground while moving or you could trip up big time.

after that just try em going at different speeds.. as odd as it sounds 70mph is no prob, maybe even easier than 20... once you get the balls to try it while going faster. its also funny to do if someone is riding behind you, i caught my friend in the face w/ my shoe rubber shreds lol

its super easy tho... i'd trade it in for a good solid wheelie anydays

be safe, good luck !

p.s. watch out for those white lane dots in the road though.. our friend was doing it down the freeway and hit one and his shoe went flying off lol... so he threw the other shoe over the side and stuck to doing wheelies in his socks ahahaha

I hit a reflector in the center of the highway with my foot. I thought it was was broke at first. It wasn't, but it was black and blue for a week or so.
You gotta pay attention.

I dont have any pics but it isnt all that hard... and getting back on is kinda simple to... though it does look alot better if you kick out of it and land on the seat... I have been told that this is done by pushing your toes downward and the friction will kick your feet up automatically... never tried that though... I havent even skitched in like two years though... kinda tears up your boots... I figure its like doin burnouts... shouldnt do it til your ready to by a new set of boots....

lol for real??

you can do it with any shoes... skate shoes worked for me. my friend had small tacks/nails in his shoes only to save his soles tho, it didnt spark or nothing.

once you figure it out it's not that great anymore though... i havent done it in forever too

question, so do you hold your weight with your arms and just basically drag your body? Is there an arm position? also I can get off the bike on the left side but when I do, have no idea how to support the weight of my body? (just a tad of my hip stays on the (side) of my bike to hold my body's weight)

So I decided to give the Skiing trick a try and it really isn't that hard, just lay your chest across the gas tank of the bike and let your feet lightly graze the ground.

i tried about a week ago and made the mistake of being a women (no offense just an experation) of trying about 30 mph. ended up having to slow down and walk it to a stop then tried today about 45mph and nailed it. pretty cool for a little showing off lol. but working on getting over smoother. my bike is lowered about 2" so it kinda a little harder

Way to go Pearl, yeah that trick is definitely the bomb when showing off, doing it around 45-55mph is better because you have more momentum going with the bike rather with it being all over the road. Any pics? I hardly see any chicks doing that trick.

Oh shoot my bad man, I guess you meant you was being a girl by going slow, oh well. Once you do that, youll want to learn more. Keeping the wheel in the air, takes patience and practice, youll be there in no time.
