    Keep your right arm inside the saddle so you will have better control when flicking the bike out to the side

    Are you the guys who was debating the Redline Conquest vs Phantom Cross?

    It would have been better if you could have set the camera at more of an angle so we could have seen the mounting and dismounting. Slow motion would have also been better.
