OUCH! :eek

That looks like it sucked....

The camera looks way for a second, but you can just see that the rider isn't looking and the bike is ever so slowly going to come crashing down again..

Oooh that sucks.

Don't bet on it. There's a VERY good chance the tank took a hit.

This is why I was saying that unless you're very wealthy and/or just don't care about your bike it's better to get a cheapie streetfighter thingie to learn this stuff.

That looked somewhat painful, but how else do you learn.

It's a good idea to post vids like that because if you're going to want to learn stunts, you'd better get used to the fact that it will eventually happen to you. If you're okay with that, then off you go and have fun.

that's a guy from gixxer.com, there's another, from the same day I think, of a guy on a R1 doing that as well.

it's creepy seeing his bike balancing on the back wheel and fender. he almost had enough time to get up and catch it.

How did that happen?

I don't get it. My friends and I have pulled a billion stoppies and never, ever come close to flipping it. As far as I can tell, your brain and inner ear tell you when you're getting too close to the tip over point and at that point you automatically back off the brake. Is it possible he hit an object in the road causing the front end to lock up thus flipping him over?

I think that seeing all these accidents while doing stunts is keeping me from my own experimenting. :mad
