very very very PAINFUL crash video

Ouch!!! :naughty:

man face plants really suck.

It may have hurt but what the hell was he doing jumping on his first ride?? (read the caption)

Man, they always tell you not to chop the throttle too early on a jump face?

Full throttle in the air as well - OUCH hope he was OK.

2smokes arent as sensitive to throttle chops as 4strokes are. The jump must have had a pretty good kicker on it and needed you to blip the throttle a tad going over it. The wot is him freezing up on the throttle as it rolled away from him.

When the front didn't come up, he should have let go of the bars, and did a "tuck and roll' -- not hold the bars to the end and face-plant.

Jeez I wonder if anybody told him ANYTHING about jumping, before letting him do it.

A second attempt is in order.

Just so this dosent happen to me or my Boy.... What exactly went wrong????

I am hip to the bail out if things go really bad as they did...

Signed .... Never pretend to know more than you do!!!!

Thanks Guys... :naughty:

Bet he felt that in the morning :naughty: Hope he was alright.

:naughty: he will be feeling that one for a day or 2 :naughty:

He let off the gas while taken off= lounging over the bars :D

Too much gas while taken off= Looping out/front wheel sky hi :naughty:

Steady gas while taken off= level flight :naughty:

That only holds true when the face of the jump is smooth and doesnt account for kickers on it. With a kicker you still need to blip the throttle or you will endo. they are more prevalent on hard packed clay jumps than sandy ones.

2 things went wrong - I listened to the throttle many times up to the jump lip -

1. He let off the gas on the face of the jump - this would have been ok if his weight had been more positioned to the rear instead of the front of the bike - Neutral position is always better - see #2

2. incorrect body position - especially when letting off the gas on the face

3. I am 90% sure that there was not enough rear rebound damping for his size and weight - the rear end just lifted up and over - he looks very light weight

He should have practiced jumping on a smaller jump - the first time to see how the bike reacted/dampning reacted -

my 2cents and yes ouch is in order!

I think he could use some lessons or at least some advice

OH and a dentist

Are you telling me that stupid people ride bikes to and this is not strictly a quad phenomenon?

sure doesnt sound like he let off the gas too me. It's sound steady all the way up the face.

that is possible as I am deaf............ :naughty:

You were refering to the rear sag ..... yes??? If set too soft....Does the front end come up too much??? and is set too stiff ... will this cause an endo???
