\"I Belive I can Fly\" not!

Hi! it's me from Scotland? I'm looking for advise again!!!!! we've been having so much fun learning to ride the Warrior,"The Boy" kicks my ass [never thought I'd see the day] the only real problem we are having? is landing jumps! we're getting threw over the bars or we're getting tossed off [no pun intended] makes us look like amatures!
what are we doing wrong?
sensible answers only please [tee hee]
Cheers and "Hoots Mon"
Steve & "The Boy"

Re: \"I Belive I can Fly\" not!

so your hitting jumps and falling? well, i think your askin for tips, so, befreo you go off a jump, u should probally get ready, which means get a good grip, and grit your teeth, then gas it at the very top of the jump to mkae your landing fine and have a good amount of air, if you find yourself vertical pointing torwards the sky press the front brake and bake might help if pointing towards ground, if that does happen, get ready to bail or fall, i really ont know what else your askin, but i dont have to many more tips off my head, i am goin blank now [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

hit the gas if your front end is pointing down, it sounds to me like your gettin thrown off as in the back end bouncing you over the front...either you gotta learn to hold on, or soften the suspension up a bit or something.... [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Re: \"I Belive I can Fly\" not!

When jumping any four stroke, bike or quad you have to leave the throttle on during take off. If your letting off even at the top of the ramp the engine breaking will be acting like hitting the rear brake. I don't race much, just play ride on local tracks, but on almost any quad I try to stay centered if not, have your butt to the back and try to jump with the front end just a little higher then the rear. The warrior is kinda front end heavey as it is. Land with the throttle on too, remeber the engine breaking effect, especialy on softer surfaces.

haha, sounds like me at first.... i had a fair share of bruises, but after the boys yelling "GIVE IT GAS" numerous amounts of times, i learned, you cant be afraid to give it your all over a jump, or else you wind up on the handle bars....

anyways, thats my input for the day
