naw you still have loads of leaning to go there, first thing is that your foor is in the way and second is that you need to get you ass out off of the seat over the outside peg (weight that peg big time too) dont try and lean more, as you get faster it happens by itself

i know i can still go much further over... it also felt like i was getting very far forward and over the handlebars, but in the pics it turns out i am not really moving much at all!!! i'll need to borrow the sm to practice some more  >:D
will have to be after the EC bash as im slapping the knobblies back on this week
So much of win it hurts! ^.^

i know! i know! reliability is key. but HP lifts the front wheel off the ground  >:D besides, don't you ride an enduro race bike with indicators on it? but the general message i am getting is to chill on the mods. i was asking more because it may be a problem (for my bike tire and my safety) if my bike is as savage as n[]va's.

So I was testing out the new Veho Muvi, micro camera...

Took the bike through the neighbourhood for a quick burn.

Just taking the piss with some quick roll-on/power wheelies and a stoppie or 2.

Must still figure out the best place to mount the cam for optimum coverage...

Anyways... Milddog... this one is for you... How many more sleeps?  >:D

BTW, this was my 1st attempt at video editing. I also added a bit of classic rock as a soundtrack...  :biggrin:
