Heavy Bike

My bike is 460 pounds. Is that to heavy for most stunts or will it just take a little different technique than lighter bikes?

It will handle most stunts, also I dont know about the high end slow 12 oclock stuff. Just a wheelie or a stoppie can be done.

I dont want to offend you, but I get the impression you might not have been riding very long. If thats the case, dont worry about stunts untill you get the hang of riding pretty well.

No I havent been riding that long. Was just wondering for the later on. I will start atempting stunts when I feel confortable that I will be able to remain in complete control without dumping or anything. I don't rush into things I dont feel capable of, I just think I learn quicker than some others when trying certain things. Im sure I will get flamed or told off for saying that anyway...

No matter how much you think you are in control you will wreck sometime or another..

If you are thinkin bout that katana i would suggest another bike to do stunts on.. They are heavy and such..

The weight isn't as important as the technique. If you're talkin about stunting a can of tuna. You might want to forget it. Just my
