Hell yeah, but if you crash it, make sure it's a total write-off. I'm about due for a new bike.

Did I hear my name? (Hehe)

Funny you should mention - Two weekends ago
I was at Pocono for a weekend of fun, along
with the races was the Gary Rothwell stunt show.
UNREAL - this guy was doing rolling endos for
about 60 yards!! Anyway I found it to be both
intimidating and inspiring. One thing I did
notice is that he was using the front straight
to do all his tricks and the bonus (other than
the fact that it is directly infront of the crowd)
is the fact this section is perfectly flat and
devoid of any road abnormalities. So I've
been trying to step things up abit on similar
level roads around here. I'm getting better
however I got along way to go before I hit
60 Yards. I had my best one yesterday,
unwitnessed (Ofouse! ). But it was straight
up and down for a rough guess of about 30
to 40 feet. I really need to talk someone in
to getting some of this stuff on video - I
just want to see what it looks like!!

Seriously, endos aren't that difficult - you've
just gotta to be smooth and hard on the brakes
simultaneously and have the right front tire
pressure.
