Well, it was me and Gixxerboy riding down to Coleman's on 66 a few days ago. I kept hearing about how easy stoppies are were to do, and being a new rider, I kept brushing off the urge to try tricks. To make a long story short, we got on a merge lane that was empty, and there was cars were not moving at all on the other lanes. That's when I tried it.

I shifted my weight a little towards the gas tank, and pressed on the front breaks. Next thing I know, I'm tipping over the handlebars and got thrown off the bike to the right. THANK GOD FOR FRAME SLIDERS!!! Not a scratch on the body, but ego is a little bruised.

You can count on my not to try any more stoppies on 66 during afternoon rush.

Thought I'd share my little story, peace!

ouch, sorry about that.

if you can, heres my personal opinion, if you want to practice stunting, do it in a safer environment, maybe a empty parking lot away from everyone(including cops). a major highway in traffic isnt the best place to show off...

im not bashing, just saying my opinion.

...moving to crash and rash...

However, I will bash. You are a fool. I don't care if traffic was moving or not. Like Flipn said, find a parkinglot if you want to do that stuff. I hope everyone watching you got a good laugh. Lemme guess, you started riding this year, didn't you.
Maybe I am a little pissed because I almost got hit by some douchebag trying a stoppie behind me at a light one time.
Think to yourself... are you giving riders a postive or negative image in the eyes of the general public? Why does that matter? They are the ones calling the police on cellphones.

No Bashing will be allowed here, so please none of that, I dont want to have to start editing posts

Lets help a new rider out by pointing out that persons mistake, and help them get onto the right track.

Fair enough.

My advise is this:

Riding takes enormous responsibilty. If you have trouble with responsibilty, your friends will be hosting your memorial ride .

Locking the rear and lowsiding during a traffic stop is a common mistake made by new riders.
Dropping the bike coming out of a parking space is a common mistake made by new riders.
Stalling the bike in a low speed turn and dumping it is a common mistake also.

Trying to pull a stoppie on the entrance ramp of 66 is NOT a mistake.

It's a lack of responsibility and common sense.

-edited out stuff that didn't matter

"Fools and their motorcycles are soon parted." Mistake for a fool like you to buy a bike, Gix. Try another hobby (like checkers), but always wear a helmet. You'll need it.

Love ya Norman, but I don't give moral support to morons. I hope he sells his bike to someone with more brains than he has.

Come on Norm!!!!! Can't we bash him just a little????

Anyway.....Good job bro....making all of us look like azzholes!!! Hmmmm is there a connection???? Insuring a sportbike is next to impossible south of $2K a year (for me at least).

I've only been riding 2 years, and thanks to several people on this site by the comments and proper knowledge that was passed on to me, i've become a much safer rider. I'm just asking you guys to help out a new rider regardless of what that person knows or doesnt know....
