I guess I'll have to start. Doesn't anyone have a sense of humor around here? I do hope this guy didn't fall and get hurt.

"Dude, this big brake upgrade works better then I thought! Hey, is that an ant that my helmet is about to smash?"

"I should have switched to GEICO."

"Did I use the 'Buy it Now' option for this helmet?"

"How can I really make this a Kodak moment?"

Yes I did and no I didn't. :worthy:

"Hey y'all; watch this!!"

And that is exactly what I did say. :lol:

Glad to hear your ok and a good sport. Did the bike suffer any injuries? Ive gone over the bars and landed on my head many times, maybe one to many times!

Nope. It smashed the axle slider but I made another one so no harm, no foul. :lol: Gotta love them sumo's for their ability to take a crash.

Yeah, never EVER say. "Hey watch this!" :lol:

This is a good "how to video"

The one thing he does but doesn't really talk about is loading up the front end. I get on the brakes hard enough to compress the forks, then once they are fully compressed, begin to pull more and more brake until the back end lifts. It takes practice but stoppies aren't all that difficult to get once you know how.

The mistake I made in the picture above was obviously trying to show off for the camera. But I also hit the very top of the stoppie at zero mph so with the bike not moving there was no steerage or room to maneuver.

it's funny how it takes a bit of effort to get it up but as you near the top it goes quite easily cause there's less & less gravity fighting you.

I've never gone over but have come very close a couple of times on my R1 & FZ1.
