hey, look at the front tire very carefully when the bike is flipping. you can see that the tire is flat. he must have blown the tire. like swedie said , it wasnt his fault. just bad luck. :cryin

Moral of that vid? Don't do stoppies on bad rubber.

I certainly don't know the cause of that guy's crash, but I do know this: When doing a stoppie, the force on the front tire, shocks, triple clamps & steering bearings is outrageously high. So, if the front tire needs changing, I change it, 'cause I don't want to take any "unnecessary" chances (doin' stoppies is risky enough already).

Doing that stuff with no leathers/armour on is pretty stupid too.
