Just don't do anything stupid like myself and you will be fine. I know plenty of people that do big tricks and have been riding for years and have never broken anything or gotten hurt.

When you break a bone, it hurts- the more bones you break, and the worse you break them (the more they come out of alignment), the more it hurts. When you first break something you just get all panicy and just don't feel right and are pretty much unable to get up... or atleast that's how it was for me.

I know fit doesn't want to say anything because he has a good chance of becoming a mod soon..Stop asking dumb questions. They probably wouldn't build them if they didn't ride them..

I was being nice, because apparently I am super mean to all the noobs. All I was going to say was that he didn't need to make a new thread for every question.

I'm glad you wouldn't, but others do, although I consider myself nicer to noobs than most people.

He sure likes to manual... and that roof gap was pretty much suicide, especially since there was no where to land.

That's insane.. I wouldn't hit anything that would mean I would die if I didn't pull it.

Just a bit too much pressure... imagine if his chain snapped.

benas1281, don't worry about feeling awkward and shy. It's tough to approach people you don't know, especially if you think they might make fun of you. It's all part of seeing if you're able to handle a bit of razzing. If you are eager to learn, and have respect for the people who are showing you things, they will probably be happy to teach you more. Most people really enjoy teaching someone else, as long as the new person shows enthusiasm and really tries to learn.

We really do like new people to come and talk to us here, just remember that a lot of the folks here have heard these same questions a lot of times! And be patient, we aren't on here 24 hours a day, even if it seems that way.

As the guys said, if you go out to a parking lot, and practice some of the moves, you'll be a bit more confidant when you go to the park. I can bunnyhop, and that's about it. But I don't care, it's the joy of riding the bike that matters.
