    w00t, learning tailwhips.

    And not the flatland ones either, and ***** they're fun.

    Although I keep catching my foot on the toptube, as soon as I stop doing that, it'll be great.

    Tailwhips are fun to try, i can barly get the bike around in time, but theres just something about them that is fun even if you cant get close to landing them. The closest i have gotten was landing on my seat, with both feet on one side, and then falling.

    Oh, and if you watch videos, lots of pros sometimes land whips with there foot on the toptube, especially when they arent doing them on box jumps or something that gives you more time...

    I want to learn turndowns, but no real bowls or anything where I live.

    And I dont have a foam pit or anything, i'm just learning them off of a ramp I set up on the curb in front of my house going onto the grass...

    And I never really fell, I almost always landed on my feet next to my bike, and for the few times I did stumble nothing really happened. Other then me landing on my cell phone once that hurt.

    I have a POS phone so that way it doesn't matter how bad I mess it up, I won't care if the whole thing just falls apart and cracks in half (which it's starting to do).
    I am Gunz. Gunz are me.
