Gixxerboy,

Welcome! Man, that must be cool, you and your son riding together. Can't wait till mine is old enough to be on the street with me. Got a ways to go, though, he's only 6.

An endo is a stoppie gone too far, so I wouldn't suggest attempting those.

Somehow, when he says boy I really don't think he's referring to his son. :) Of course I could be wrong but I think he is referring to a close friend (boy being slang).

Anyway, welcome dude!

:DAfter consulting my "Modern American Slang" thesaurus and dictionary, I must agree with giovanni :D. This dude has no son (yet: sportbikes can do that to a person though...hehehe :D :p), just a buddy who he rides with. I may be wrong, it's just not likely; and of course I say that in all humbleness...LOL.

Either way...welcome dude. Nice bike. Have fun and ride safe!

An endo is when you do a stopie a little to well and end up kissing the asphalt right in front of your bike. The bike usually finds a soft spot to land though=(on you). A endoverend is when...........well.........let's just stop there for now.

It will defin. help if you lean forward.. If you don't want to lean just pull the brake a little harder (I don't lean, I just use more brake).

Go to the "FAQ" in the upper right of the front page of the forum: Announcements
Daily Rider
Race Chat
etc. etc.
It will tell you there how to post them.
Like if you want to post a smile you
just : D but now don't put a space in between the two.

Let me know if it works for ya.. :) :( :eek: :D ;) :p and so on.........

To do a stoppie you just find a nice area to practice. Don't go too fast. Apply the front brakes, you will need to keep pulling harder until the back end comes up. Once it comes up to where you like it slowly let go (slow) and it goes back down..

PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!!!! :D
