You can do a 60+ mph stoppie on a big bike... a trials bike tops out at about 30 mph.



Just stirrin the pot a lil.


comparing big bike stunting and trials stunting/riding is like comparing regular nfl to arena football (whatever thay call it) they're both good in their own way, but just not the same. neither one is better than the other.

i guess when i look at the big bike stuff most of it looks like a rehash of other tricks. Like i said you do a wheelie that's a trick. wheelie with one leg up another one. wheelie sitting on your tank another one. stoppie one trick stoppie with one hand up another then stoppie with pointing at the camera. it's like the real creativity of the tricks are being held back. In the second video i saw the same stunt about 20 times. Like i said some parts were like dang now that was tight front flip of the bike. tight. standing the bike up then taking off on a wheelie. tight. and a couple more. going up those stairs jumping and kissing the bike off the wall. riding up a vertical wall. stoppie on a ledge then bringing it off..........IMHO those are some creative tricks.

and don't take this thread in stride with my others and i bet that's what you have done. cause had anyone else posted the exact some thing you wouldn't have got the "air" of condesention (sp? is that even a word)

Why dont you do some reserach on stunting before making assumptions? I wouldnt go out there and post up a race vid and say "Oh looky, here's real racing".......I mean cmon.......think before you post that up.

And for the record, no i'm not knocking your opinion. Everyone's entitled to they're own opinion, it's just that I can see through all the BS, that this thread was made in jest to the sport of stunting.....
how was it made in jest when i'm saying this type of stunting seems more stunt worthy and i gave props to all of one and parts of the other. yet I'm making jest of the sport of stunting. you can shove that right up your cause your thinking i'm trying to cap on the sport and i'm not. but hey my past antics tell you that I'm trying to make fun so i can see where you're getting your misguided view.

No harm really. Just frustrated that for once I ACTUALLY agreed with you on the point that, YES, that is awesome what they can do on a trials bike, and you wanted to name some instances where what can be done on a big bike, that you cant do on a trials bike. Like I said, apples and oranges, and they both are awesome in they're own respects.....:notworthy

I will happily leave this thread now.....:notworthy
