just learned how to skid
so i was reading a thread at work today about learning to skid by not unweighting the back wheel, and it got me thinking i should try to learn how to skid on my commute home
i just put my weight forward, locked up my feet at 3 & 9 and after a few tries i got the hang of it. for a while i couldn't stop laughing. i can't skid very far before i risk falling over, but it's a lot of fun. if anyone's interested, i did it on dry/damp pavement, running 46x16, using toe clips and straps.
so now i am going to enjoy a celebratory beer, and my mark v gets a sip.
