Matt, no offense was taken. Racing and stunting are just 2 different styles and many times seem to attract different people. Racers and trackday guys (who aren't also into stunting) can say the same thing about stunting that you said...you guys go up on the back wheel, or up on the front wheel over and over. You changing your legs positions to make it a different type of wheelie is just like us changing body positions on the bike for the different/better handling in different corners. What attracts me to racing vs stunting is 1) the side by side competition with other racers 2) the precision required to handle the motorcycle at speed 3) advancements are quantitated by lap times and 4) I like riding my bike. I see pictures like your myspace page and you have 1) serious stunting talent and it does require good amounts of bike control which I appreciate, 2) most of the pictures you're not even ON the bike, rather standing beside it. To me, that gets boring. Edit: That is not a dig on you, by the way, only using your pictures as an example. So, no offense intended.

I like stunters(ing) because you guys are usually cool people and when I get tired of corner-carving, it's nice entertainment to see another form of motorcycle control.

To each his own I suppose.

Oh and supermotard is badass....but they do need gear.

Yo Yo Yo anthony please do not get your panties all twisted man it's all good bro. I just found the track/video to be boring nothing else. I should of made the clearer my bad. I think super motards are the shiznit TBH any size 50cc-1K BTW I bought the mini to stunt and turns out I'm not qualified. :eh:

Can we get a group hug going lol:icon_bigg

Of course....keep things alive in here....


I'm only kidding. It doesnt matter to me either way. If someone likes stuntin, then get into stuntin. If they like trackdays, go ride track. I dont look down on either sport......
