Gee, I wonder where you guys are. :D

Drop me a note next time you guys go out, I'm in need of some pointers on 'using' my bike properly. ;)

And Fish hasn't been around for a while because he's gone down to the states for some stuntin' stuff, can't remember exactly what it was.

I just checked out that site where the Fish guy is from. Those guys are good. I'd like to see them do that stuff in person. They do a lot that I can't:)

In turn, you do alot of stuff we can't do. I assume that riding the tank is just like riding without hands.....weight transfer steers the bike? What was going through your head the first time you climbed the tank?

Skid - I had a question, when you wheely your bike do you clutch it, blip the throttle, or does your bike have enough power to just throtle it up?

I need more consistency 1 out of 10 is not good enough for me:)

- the 1st time i stood on my bike my knees were shaking and I went over a bump and almost fell. After I made myself jump from the seat to the tank the whole thing just got easy:)

-the little wheelies I can do I just use the throttle and a little bounce. I don't like using the clutch... so I never do...

Well we don't have a place that we go to stunt since we're not really into stunt riding at all.

The thing we love more than anything is twisties....mmmmm.... twiiiisstiessss..... *droooool* :D

But when there are no twisties you have to keep yourself amused, and challenged, so we just do random things here and there along our rides to mix it up a bit and have some fun.

We never usually take pictures because we never plan to do any tricks... they just "happen" out of the blue when nobody has a camera around unfortunatly. We'll try to get more pics this summer if we do them.... but we want the turns!!!


as for wheelies, ya, just whack the throttle and give it a bit of a bounce. no clutch here:)

Hey Mark, I guess you've already been there and done all of the roads in West Van already, but i love doing the Chartwell ride all the way up, to the top of Cantebury. Only late at night when there's no traffic and only in the summer 'cause there's still lots of salt and gravel and some ice up there now. But i find there are a bunch of nice corners (although blind) in the properties...

Chartwell is a nice ride... It's soooo close to my house... but it's a slow ride. Cypress is where it's at, although it lacks an abundance of corners. The sea-to-sky is great, but always has traffic...
We're gonna try Seymor this summer... and whatever else we can that's local
Can't wait to get out of town and hit the duffy-lake road:)
