As the title says... Why did you start stunting?

I'm very interested into starting to stunt but I'm not sure if I have the "reasons" to start. My reasons would be:
Want to expand my riding skills
Want to either track or stunt my bike
Experience something new, I'm amazed at what stunters can do
My bike will never be in "showroom condition" so why waste money to make it "pretty"
and basically to have fun....

I know that stunting is not cheap, it is dangerous, but in the long run it is rewarding.

if your gonna go the stunting route i would suggest learning staggered stand-ups and just work your way to getting them slower and higher. the dude i bought my bike from was super good at stunting and i actually have a set of tygershark stunt cages i would sell you cheap too if you have an 07 or newer 600rr. i left my bike stunted until i needed new sprockets and i learned alot, on the island i live on pretty much everyone knows me as the wheelie guy haha. but ive almost had a few reckless tickets because i cant seem to help myself. personally i think tracking your bike would be the way you really learn your bike and what its capable of if thats the focus for changing it up. but i dont think it matters what you decide because tracking or stunting your gonna have fun either way. good luck bro

Thats the answer bud... Its all about fun.. Ya its a very expensive hobby, but there is nothing else like it.. Do what you feel bro.. If speed is your bag then stunting should prolly fall behind track.. But... Anyone can lay into the throttle and go fast.. Takes something more wheelie in circles at idle speeds.. Depends on YOU man.. Do what you love. Jus stay safe..

heres my bike the day i bought it, cages, idle adjuster, vortex clip ons, renthal +4 or +5 on the rear sprocket
FAIL.......

When I got my bike I wanted to learn to wheelie, cause, well why the F*** not? they looked (and are) fun.

I am still not a "Stunter" I am just a rider that likes to do wheelies and stoppies.

I would suggest learning wheelies on a dirt bike, or a stunt bike, cause you will crash it. **** even get get a scooter and wheelie that, they come with stock hand brakes and it will hurt alot less when you loop it.
