You can tighten or loosen opposing spokes to fix a little bit of runout yeah. I don't want to ride it too much missing a spoke though. I dunno, might just try to wait until the tires need to be replaced. Which at the current rate of tire wear shouldn't be too long. Rock eats these Dunlops.

And I clean the chain with the engine off. The first thing they pound into your mind in middle school shop class is to keep fingers/clothing/hair away from moving belts, chains and gears. People have lost more than just fingers making similar mistakes.

Last year I just rode up and down my driveway learning to do a wheelie. You got the right idea; I always stand up, but my dad does them sitting down. I don't use the clutch at all, just pull up on the bars and give it some gas in 2nd gear. Take it slow though, just pulling it up a few inches at a time. Just some practice and you will be able to hold it.
Pulled a wheelie on JasonA's Honda 450 racing of a stoplight last year. It was intentional, but it still kinda scared me.

First time I've been able to ride on actual dirt. Am I doing it right?





(Yes, I am wearing a bunch of my old paintball gear.)

You're doing everything wrong.


It does look like you're about to dump it in the last pic but you have fairly good form. When you get real fast you won't counter balance and you'll just lay it over, leg down, throttle wide open dragging your bars. Well... may not on that big 300 thumper. lol Lookin good.

I have dumped it once, ever so gently. Was riding like that, felt it start slipping, pushed up and let off the throttle a bit. Saved it, but lost a bunch of speed in the process and didn't give it enough throttle when I leaned it again to finish the turn. Just fell over in slow motion, thankfully no people or cameras around at the time because it probably looked rediculous.

Just remember that a motorcycle is a gyroscope. The more speed you carry, the more stable it is. Sometime it is a lot better to throttle out than to slow down and let it fall on you. I hope you don't go ride out in the woods alone.

You dont vote for pimps, the real leaders step forward.

And I am honored to be AOTs pimp. I never thought my time years ago in the BL forums would result in my pimping of PBR but I gladly accept.

So my 7yr old cousin is riding a dirt bike now. My uncle got him a well used TT-R50. He loves it. For the most part he is very good, with the occasional flash of terrible. He's dumped it many times, but I can't blame a 7yr old new rider for dumping a bike riding on deep loose gravel with tiny wheels. I tried riding that thing and it was terrifying.

He did manage to push the throttle sleeve too far down the bar when he dumped it at some point, which then caused it to stick and he ran straight into a fence. Bent the fork legs pretty good, need to be replaced. Uncle already bought another used TT-R90 which is in much better shape and probably a better size for a 7yr old for when the kid gets used to riding.
