Yeah, I usually do them around 20 - 30 mph, but usually by the time the rear comes up the speedo says 16, haha. If I pull up a good one then I can ride it around 10 mph for a few seconds .. the faster ones can naturally be ridden longer.

It happens when all the weight is over the front wheel. Steering damper doesnt prevent this from happening, arm strength does!

I was hoping you would chime in!:icon_bigg

So that means I just need to keep my arms stiff?

a damper would help but keep your arms stiff some people lock there elbows in. I dont do that becuase to stay alittle relaxed to steer myself where I need to go.

Edit: Just noticed the pictures, upononer6, thats pretty good. How long (distance, seconds) are you riding them?
i havent measured the distance yet i just learned them... i bounce them up at around 50 to 60... but thanx man

ive seen joe get mad headshakes... its kind of scary till you see him do it a few times and pull out of it...i was workin on stoppies in the grass so it would be easier on the concrete... just be sure if you flip to roll out of the way of the bike... it does not feel good to have it land on you....

to steer mine i twist my hip in the oposite direction and lean my upper body in but i keep my arms locked most of the time so i found thats the easiest way for me.
