yeah ski, I've been riding about 15yrs. but been doing stunts for the last year, I don't have any more pics of anything, since I wrecked a couple of weeks ago, It'll probably be another month before I get the bike back together, but mY repetoire consist of wheelies (stand up and seated), Jesus christ (standing on seat), stoppies, and I just got skiing on the side, right before the wreck. Oh and burn outs too, on and off the bike.

do you have a throttle lock of some kind. I was learning how to ski, before my stupididty set in, I was wanting to be able to ski behind the bike, not just on the side, but I would need to lock the throttle.

you can turn up your idle really high and that will give you enough speed, but i found a throttle lock one time that was sick, it was a bar end that compressed into the throttle to lock it. rather cool design, i'll have to try and find it again.

what ever gear you can get it to stay abour 25-30 in would be good, maybe a tad bit faster, that why you have centrifigul force keeping the bike up.

good, thanks, what I used to do was ski it to a stop then burn out around to park it, but I wanted to ski behind like a ghost rider than jump back on over the back. when I get it back together I'll give it a try

sounds good man, learn how to steer it from the rear first, try sitting on the rear seat while coasting and steer the bike around, get a feel for that and it should help.

yea, I've learned that if you just barely shift your weight on the rear it dramatically moves the front because there is hardly any weight on the front wheel.
