:D :D... can somebody explain to me. about how fast there are goin to do those masssively high endos.. i only get mine up about a foot and a half to two feet.. i was running up at the rocks store off muholland hwy this weekend.. and these couple of guys were goin kinda slow.. in the opposing lane.. I thought something was wrong.. and then on sportbike fellow ripped this mad endo.. all the way up.. and he wasn't even traveling that fass.. do you really have to get on that brake lever.. i know your weight has to be trnasfered on the front .. but i juss can't seem to get it all the way up.. and do you all lean forward .. like everyone used to do .. back in the day.. on your BMX~!.. hehe.. :D :D.. i dont know. maybe i need to ride a bmx and practice.. ahhah.. my gigg does say schwinn on the side.. :p peace out guys..

Ahh, see now THIS is a topic that isnt NEARLY as annoying as the Wheelie topics! Anyone want to give some advice here?

Gixxer you gotta learn how to do the stoppies where you actually PASS vertical and then come back down again.

Those are "da" absolute baddest tricks ive seen. If you learn i wanna see some video!!

:D :D

First off; can I do what you are describing? Hell no. I could if I was more talented though. You can do this. Just grab waayyyyy more brake than your brain is telling you that it's safe to. Why dont' I do massive endos? Three words. Fairings, No Money. Endos are backwards wheelies. When you get that front up and keep on the throttle and it's coming up and up and up and all of a sudden the brain says "oh shit, point of balance is very close" and you close the throttle. OK, I CLOSE THE THROTTLE! The endo is the same thing. You just haven't had the b*lls to grab a whole handful of front brake. I applaud you though. Hey, I admit that I'm too chicken to do it. I, however, will have a fully functioning bike next week, while others will be waiting on left mirror, left upper fairing, left footpeg, clutch lever, skin for upper leg, etc...........Thanks for listening! You're doing fine w/your 1 foot endos!!! Leave the rest to the LV Extremes guys, who have sponsors to pay for the banged up bikes. 'Nuff said.

are you talking rolling or stopping stoppies?

makes a big difference.

i couldn't get the rolling ones to work well.

stopping ones aren't really about speed, it's more about balls to pull the brake harder. set the front and pull harder, they'll come up higher.

oh yeah, buy a shock. your stock one will be trashed within 30 stoppies.

I've gotta agree with Green here. Go a bit faster and grab a whole lotta brake. Try and get way way up. The most impresive trick is getting the rear past vertical. Dont worry you'll be fine it just feels a bit odd on the way up.
