Cool How not to die

What's the best way to practice without breaking all bones and losing limbs, I love bikes, but don't want to end up in the hospitol, but do want to do tricks

peace

Practice makes perfect and every time you practice, show up with a bigger set of nuts. You gotta raise your fear threshold every time to get good. Other than that, make sure your bike's tuned and running right. Most importantly: WEAR YOUR GEAR!! Also, don't get bored b/c the minute you get bored is when you spill.

Pushing the limits in ANY sport is going to cause some sort of injury eventually. If you`re really that worried about it, its most likely not for you.

Look . . . the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances, we guard you while you sleep. Do not fu|< with us.

yep. that's true. you should be scared, to respect your bike, but not too scared. after my bad wreck, the first thing I did when i got back on her was rip a wheelie. i knew if i didn't do it then i never would.

I agree if your not willing to face the consequences of falling then dont start stunting. I have yet to get seriosly hurt, but acknowledge its a possibility. I do sometimes think about getting hurt when I havent ridden for a while but when Im riding I dont ever think about it, when I start thinking about getting hurt while I m stunting it will be time to pick up golf, until then Ill keep playing my odds hoping to hit the progression jackpot!!!!!!!

Be prepared to accept the consequences of your choices. If you're not, dont do it.
