its over now!

was just messing around yesday on the yz and i got it?
when over a jump and yanked in the clutch and hit the rear brake and let go of clutch and nailed the gas and perfect landing. FINALLY. last time i tried this i just pulled in the clutch and froze and ended up landing on the front tire. did it like 20 times no prob. i cant wait to hi some real jumps and try this.WOO hoo. what a diff. the fron comes right down. i could shift in the air and always move around on the bike no footed or one handed one footed and stuff but never could get this, i never practiced though. ohhhhhhhhhhhhh i cant wait. i also took of tghe broken exhaust on the rm and the cylinder ins perfect. cross hatchin and new piston. motor botoom is so tight and fresh. sweet!

Re: its over now!

Thats how i learned man... My borther in law had a small jump in his side yard I would hit that thing for hours and hours.. Finaly ended up with no handers and stuff. Funny thing is i dont dare do them on my 426, the torques so bad and the stall possiblity is there. Could end up gettin ya hurt bad ow ehhe.

Re: its over now!

It's definitely a useful tactic when racing. As soon as I would leave the jump I would stab the rear brake and float to almost the landing before getting things turning again. That, along with absorbing as much take off as possible let em fly lower and faster than a lot of guys. Works awesome on the singles where you just fly into a flat landing. You can get on the ground and driving hard much sooner. It's a good thing to get really used to so when you are screwing around and almost loop out in the air you can save it.

Damnit, I need to get a bike again. Almost a solid year without one. WITHDRAWLS....

Re: its over now!

Yea if you practice actualy hitting a jump alittle nose high and stabbin the brake, you will gain more distance than ya could think. If you ever go to a motocross whatch for 2 riders hitting a jump with one doin git and another not, shows a good perspectiove.
