Head shake after wheelie - **Video**

This guy comes down from a stand-up and the bike goes into head shake.

The Russian judge gave the bike a 9.9.

Good chance the Russian judge was correct on points, only I would also want to know the condition of the rider, what he wore for protection, how it stood up plus the condition of the bike. Like I am rather fussy when I hand out points.

He did go into a bit of head shaking & loss of control close to what happend in a tank-slapper only chances are the bike was with a steering head stabalizer, reason I would give less points, & besides the more modern bikes are not like the mean old bikes I rode in the days of ridgid rear ends with f/fork travel of only 2.5" & even if some suspension at the rear it would be like 1 or 2" --bikes only the REAL MEN (endangered??) rode!!!!!!!! LOL

That way that bike performed its circus tumbling routine, I'd say he wasn't going too slow. Also, it looks like a fairly major road, so the speed limit was probably in the 60-70mph range.

I heard from a friend that if your font end starts shaking, best way to counter it would be to pop a wheelie and land it correctly. that true?

hmmm. Ouch.
I'm guessing 60-80mph on the speed.
Jbaz: you dont even have do a full on wheelie, just get on the gas hard enough to unload it.

So if I put a little fur on my old avatar and maybe photoshop the panties red for the Christmas spirit, no one will object to it?

WARNING
If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler
