Who would you prefer for an instructor? RoyQ or Supah? I think I know which one I'd choose!

nope. it's something about how the XR400 is built, it carrys it's weight really low and causes it to want to twist when you try to do a stopy. odd feeling as hell.

Sounds like I've got the wrong bike lol... If I wheelie too long I starve it of oil and can't stoppie because of weight distribution... Good thing I haven't had time to build the 12 bar... If I had it would probly already be blown up from wheelies

I've been working on some royalty free music in Logic Pro for the past couple of days. When I get a few tracks done I'll get it out to anyone that wants it. Also, JewelBeat (http://www.jewelbeat.com/index.php) has decent tracks for $.99 per track per video if you want to go that route.

Suzuki DRZ400SM, won't starve for oil and the front end was built for a stoppie.

My post was supposed to be funny, too. I guess we both need Trophy to be our comedy mentor.

I found some video from last year in Alaska while I was cleaning out my HDD. It's from my first ride on studied knobbies to get a feel for how they handle. The camera angle isn't very good though because it was also my first time recording with a new helmet and the GoPro.
