I practiced these coming out of the creek in my back yard today... The water wasn't running hardly at all back there so I figured my YZ 125 would be a good trencher to get rocks out of the way and get that stagnant water moving again... Worked great!



Had to do it for about 1/8th of a mile up the creek, went back after I tore it up with the scoot and used a dirt rake to pull the loose stuff to the sides and get some flow! Don't need no stinkin' tractor, I got me a 125.

Super easy on the 125 because of the weight, you just kind of wind it up like a trials bike, point it and let it rip. I also had a bit of an advantage because I had the bank of the creek to put my inside foot down on. What a blast though!

I'll have to try it on the 450X next.

I don't have sound on my work computer, but I could never imagine doing this- being a short guy with a tall bike. Plus, having a toolkit on the back probably adds to the difficulty.
I'd like to be able to do a 180 turn, though. Heh, I could probably do it on a bike my size- like a KX100.

Too funny. I took that course and after working on the 180 wheelies we moved to a very large fallen tree where from a stopped position paralleling the tree, we place one foot on the tree and stood on the peg with the other. Then pop the clutch and spin the bike 90 degrees over the log and throw yourself over the handlebars pushing the bike the rest of the way over. Takes a few tries to get it right.
