Looking for a place to stunt, what do i need to know..
Hi fellow riders..
Im just finishing building my stunt bike, and well now im going to need a place to stunt. Im in the Okangan so finding a nice parking lot might be a task.
Does anyone know of the laws related to stunting? Is it allowed if in a private lot? Does your bike need to be registered or will a bill of sale suffice?
Also do you need your bike license? I had mine, but let it expire and ya wasn't going to go get it for just stunting.
Any info at all would be helpful! Also if anyone's looking for someone to stunt with in the Okanagan let me know! Would like to find someone to ride with, maybe teach me some things.

I think a private lot 'with permission' is the only way you'll 'be allowed' to sit in one spot and wheelie back and forth all day. You 'probably' also need all necessary documents - at the minimum, a valid license. Mind you, I don't really know... I just know that you should never give an opening or opportunity for 'the funbusters' to do what they love to do - bust motorcyclists for doing stupid shit. They're exceedingly good at it, and from what I've seen... thoroughly enjoy it.
"I dread beyond all else the growth of the petty tyranny of restrictive legislation, the transference of disciplinary authority from the judiciary to the constabulary, the abandonment of every constitutional safeguard of individual liberty."
On a private lot you can do whatever. At this point your main concerns should be:
1. Finding such a lot and getting permission for using it.
2. Transporting your bike to and from that lot (bike trailer etc).
If you have those two things covered then i doubt "legally" you have to worry about insurance, license or anything else.
Ive got the truck and ramp to move the bike, now time to find the lot! haha
