props man, sick stuff! You know on your stand ups...Are you putting pressure on the rear brake then leaning back to bring the bike back more when you get close to bp? Or do you just clutch it close to bp, throttle it to bp, then cover just in case or drag to keep it there? I'm definitely chasing it, not hard, but to the point where I am speeding up slowly...I tried draggin the brake and leaning back and that seemed to help slow me down and keep my revs down...I've tried just throttling it too like sprocket13 and covering the rear brake (not dragging) and it seems like there's too little room for error there (at least for now at my level, cause I'm kind of jack hammering around bp when I do that)..So I reverted to my 50 inspired smooth throttle, brake and lean back approach..Any help would be greatly appreciated...

I saw a guy crack his skull open at the track just idling to go get his bike inspected with no lid. His hand slipped on the throttle and bam!! First parking lot highside I've ever seen!

must have tourrets? seriously, how do you accidently give your bike enough throttle to do something liek that. ha

and this was at a track?! would hate to share it with him.

Dont want to thread jack but just to explain:

He was revving the bike slowly rolling to the inspection area (GSXR 1000). He must have messed up the clutch or gased it at the wrong time. I turned around just in time to see the bike buck him off and and slam itself. The guy was barely conscious (just muttering something)...blood pooled around his head. Luckily the paramedics were right there so all we did was watch.

I just want stunters to be careful, the 1% Estrogen in me makes me care for fellow riders. No sense in the bike having more protection than the rider. LOL

you cant be scared to lean back because the more you lean back the slower your gonna go...its hard to explain for me i just feel it out...sit downs i ride the brake hard, stand ups i lean back and just tap the brake here and there...the most important thing that i use to mess up though is down let off the gas until your at bp other wise its going to get choppy

i intended on scraping tail in the pics but his camera had a delay so thats right before i scraped

Cool man...Thanks for the input...I'll keep that in mind the next time I go out and practice..

I think the trick is to get my cajones big enough so I can just clutch it up, then drop em and then I'll be at bp, hahaha...Just gotta watch out for the exhaust..lol

man thats trick. i try to hit the rear brake, but when it comes up its like probably under a foot away from balance point. and i give it a lil more gas...and then it come sup more. and i usually will let the throttle off and it comes down. so i try to use the rear brake, and i cant get the feel for it...its like it wont catch in time. so i cut the throttle, plus the rear brake brings it down way too quick to save. just gotta have faith in the rear brake i guess...just dont feel like dumpin my bike ya kno

thanks guys...yeah you dont want to wreck i dumped it once trying to wheelie with my one foot on the ground lol it sucked to see my bike hit the ground...you just have to take your time dont rush into it....all i can say is clutch then gas it up smooth once you start to slow down hold it there steady as possible and apply rear brake where needed
