Truck Surfing

I tried truck surfing today and it was fun as hell but im not sure if its that good of an idea

wait at a traffic stop
wait for a TRUCK with NO BEDCOVER
thats going straight ahead
hold on for as long as you can

*you're ****ed if they press their brakes, your tire thats '20 might clip their usually '10 off the ground bumpers and you will washout and probably get runover by car from behind

*DON'T hold onto a car thats going to turn, you will most likely be thrown from your bike

*Its best if you choose a truck that has Animal and demolition bumperstickers or a truck that looks like its being driven by a youger person, if its granpa he'll probably ***** at you and get out of his truck, but its best if they don't see you at all so STAY LOW

*have fun

Or, y'know, it doesnt matter if they are turning, learn how to turn with them. If they hit they're brakes you will not be fornicated, but instead can just resist with your arm, or turn around it.

We always do this around here. We also use my truck when we're mountian biking to get town ins for lines we dont have enough of a run in for.

Also, in these parts, it's called skitching.

considering theres a wheel, bumper, and top tube in between you and the truck you must have amazingly large reach

This kid sucks at explaning it, you grab beside it, not the tailgate but instead the rear quarter panel into the bed.

by the way

my left foot was on the pedal and my right foot was on my back peg and my left arm was grabbing the tailgate

that makes it less awkward then having both feet on the pedals while doing it

i should try to grab the rear quarter panel but i think they'll see me in the mirror
