Hell yeah, but if you crash it, make sure it's a total write-off. I'm about due for a new bike. :D

Did I hear my name? :cool: (Hehe)

Funny you should mention - Two weekends ago
I was at Pocono for a weekend of fun, along
with the races was the Gary Rothwell stunt show.
UNREAL - this guy was doing rolling endos for
about 60 yards!! Anyway I found it to be both
intimidating and inspiring. One thing I did
notice is that he was using the front straight
to do all his tricks and the bonus (other than
the fact that it is directly infront of the crowd)
is the fact this section is perfectly flat and
devoid of any road abnormalities. So I've
been trying to step things up abit on similar
level roads around here. I'm getting better
however I got along way to go before I hit
60 Yards. I had my best one yesterday,
unwitnessed (Ofouse! :D). But it was straight
up and down for a rough guess of about 30
to 40 feet. I really need to talk someone in
to getting some of this stuff on video - I
just want to see what it looks like!! :)

Seriously, endos aren't that difficult - you've
just gotta to be smooth and hard on the brakes
simultaneously and have the right front tire
pressure.

I can do them, but I can't do a rolling endo. Can't get any higher than about 45 degrees and don't particularly like to do them due to the fact of know matter how hard I sqweeze my tank I usually rack'em and I don't feel like spending mad cash on a new shock.

I do stoppies all the time on my bicycle. :) The neigborhood kids think it is really cool. As for doing them on a motorcycle, lend me yours and I will give it a shot. If I lay it down, don't worry I won't give you a penny. :D

I'll have you know that's Pete and RCJohn performing a patented stunt called the "snac-snac rolling endo." RCJohn and Pete have been practicing for months now.

So far, there haven't been any "spills," but RCJohn wears the bib just in case. :D :D

Thanks Chris, but I have to confess, last year I had a pretty bad accident while riding and the doctors had to lop about 4 inches off of that thing. Now, I can barely reach the footpeg! :D

i used to do them all the time on my f2. i had buy a shock, rebuild forks.

then a couple of years ago at pocono, i saw rothwell, got hyped to do 'em bigger, better. then i saw a guy on a 900rr going about 5mph holding an endo that was so high i could read the stickers on top of the tank.

i figured, i can't do that, why bother?

haven't done many since.

like colin i do 'em on my mountain bike. but it's much different. my first stoppie on the mountain bike i went right over from being used to doing them on a motorcycle. oops.

Done one by complete chance, a car came round a bend cutting off my side of the road.
I had no room to go anywhere so I had to brake, the car missed me by a whisker and left me with my tail skyward.
Held the pose for a moment, let it drop and continued to ride on (quite composed I thought). :)

Did one today by pure luck. I was riding at a good clip (not 3 figures, but close) and all of a sudden I saw a police car going the other way. Grabbed a hand full of front brake and the tail came up. I released it quickly and the rear dropped and I continued to slow down. Thankfully the police car didn't turn around...

I found out by chance, and now I do them every so often. Had a few nice ones riding with a buddy on his 996. Did one in fornt of a DPS officer (didn't know he was behind me till the bike came down) He gave me a speeding ticket and was not looking at me at he time because he did not say anything. Oh, and they hurt my balls.
