Just a thought.......

Just finished watching a couple of vids, but do you think, if you wanted to get into stunting that it would be better for you to learn how to bail when it comes to doing certain tricks? I mean, I see alot of riders out there, and think that it would be good before learning a certain trick, the best way to fall (if any) so you can limit yourself to getting hurt? :dontknow:

I mean, I know there's murphy's law and all, but do you think that with the right mindset and training, someone could be taught to learn how to best minimalize the damage they incur while stunting?

Guess you would have to sit down and figure out all of the possible scenarios that could happen. What all could go wrong, ya know?

Exactly. I mean like, if your doing FIB O's to the right then you could just jump off to the back or to the right and let the bike get away from you, but that's if your in the right situation....:dontknow:

Yeah, but it's inevitable. I mean were taking machines and jumping all around them like crazed monkey's, your bound to get hurt. I am lucky so far to not have really sustained alot of damage while stuntriding. I push the envelope, but not that hard....:dontknow:

Im sure you could sit down and figure it out sounds like a good plan to me. It wont always work because there are a million things that can go wrong, but if you weed out the major ones you just might be able to save your a**. Good idea mate.
Now go start falling...:icon_bigg :icon_bigg :icon_bigg

del, just watch me and joe. we do pretty good at saving the bike/bailing injury free.

HC - let go with the hand that is falling and pull your legs around, try to land on your feet.

^^ is about the only one that REALLY takes thought, and the only one that will really **** you up if you **** it up.

spreader - easy to land on feet
SS - very easy to land on feet
sit down - if you **** up a sit down you got issues....
staggard - ^ same^
circles(FIB, SS) - try not to highside and if you do then just go with it, pull in the clutch and when the wheel hits grab the handbrake and jump off to one side. (the side the bike is falling too.)

See....now this is what i'm talking bout....


I mean, if your barely startin out in the stunt game, there could be a possibility that you can really yourself up.


Only thing i've had that is semi-serious, is a broken toe.....


Other than that, the occasional road rash and little bumps and bruises
