So I have been finally been able to ride...looped out close to 10 times in 3 days but most have been pretty mild...bent my rim on this last one heh.

On the third day I finally started to use the brake and have gotten pretty consistant at clutchin them right up.

How do you guys keep the bike straight when its so slow? All my bad drops have been from the bike gettin sideways.

Damn slow wheelies are much harder then they look but Im doing decent I think.

I know exactly what you're talking about as far as the bike being more nimble (laterally) when you are going slower. I can pull them up from going 0 MPH (can't keep them below 40), but my body position is so much more of a factor than when I'm going 50 MPH. I'm sure it has to do w/ physics in some dimension, it only makes sense...

In any case, I think learning the brake is harder than steering it, even when I try, the rear brake is not enough instinct for me to save a 1st gear looper. I've come past in second or third, where I have a little more time because its less twitchy, and been able to bring it back, but it came down hard.

Learning the brake and slowing things down is a bizitch. Good luck man, show us some video soon.

you can always cheat by turning up the idle to 2-3k then just give it one good rev. and pop the clutch,dont stay on the gas.Try gettting it up to the bp.As far as the side to side drop the air presure to 15-20 psi.It will come up a little fast but the idle will come in and slow down.

i put my idle around 3-3.5krpm and i try to keep my tire pressure around 20 to 24psi. where you not covering the brake when you looped them couple of times, cause as long as you cover the brake looping really shouldn't be a problem. the only time i have almost looped was doing a 1st gear ss, brought it back a little too far and the engin brake almost didnt save me. as far as side to side balance dropping tire pressure helps but i think your probably better off learning with like 20 psi and using your body more, then when you move on to things like circles you won't have to raise it back up

i know this is a stupid answr but why lower the tire pressure?

more surface on the ground?

So we rode all weekend and man what progression.

Im clutchin them to bp really consistently now and using the brake to control the speed...still have a nasty throttle habit tho which I am working on.

Im guessin I have about 10 psi in the rear for now and I have my idle up but don't know what at since I don't have gauges.

Its just weird how this shit clicks all of a sudden...like learnin to wheelie all over again heh.

I don't believe nothing...I just know you and what you have done.

If anyone is shady is you so there is no need to lie to yourself.
