Stunt riding????

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by shaneo25, Feb 4, 2010.

  1. Hey guys and girls of netrider how's it goin?
    I was just curious to know if there is anywhere around the Brisbane area that u can go to legally do stunt/trick riding, and/or places that teach that style of riding...
    I am tossing up between converting my 2002 R1 into a full race bike or full street fighter....
    thanks
    Shane

  3. There should be quite a big network up those ways...

    There's a closed circuit event called stuntskillz and many of the pro guys came down from queensland. I'd love to full streetfighter a bike with the bigass rear sprocket, 12-bar etc. but i'd imagine being able to do everything so easily on the bike with minimal concern for droppage may cause me to be a bit sillier than what i'd consider the norm.

    and then there's the problem of registering a stunter.... unless you have a mate who's a mechanic to do the pink slips, you would have a hard time getting it roadworthy and you will probably get ALOT of attention from the law. The lack of mirrors, modified crash bars and 12 bar stand out like a sore thumb.

  4. Hey thanks kinkybinky I got ya pm appreciate it....
    And hey not4resale, how's it goin? I have the same prob now, I am too worried bout dropping me bike as it is in schmikko condition hence y I wanna get all the safety gear... Will take time to get the cash together to do it but hey, they thrill is worth it yeah...
    I am still deciding wether to convert me R1 I to the full race track bike or fighter but that is y I wanna just learn a bit about both so I can safely say yes I wanna race or yes I wanna stunt... I just gotta get off the road as the way I ride wen by myself is crazy and 1 of 2 things will end up happening need I say wat lol...
    If I dEcide to keep with the speed then I'd rather do it on the track atleast then I can still keep my licence if nuthin else lol....

  5. I know nothing about stunting but would it make sense to buy a repairable wreck cheap -patch it up a bit and use that so if you crash it you dont care should you scratch the frame engine covers etc ? rather than risk damaging a smick r1 ?

  7. Money may be an issue now --- but I am sure the auction bikes are cheap

    check out fowlers they usually have a list of 50 bikes or more all the time.

    The money will be even higher amount if you damage the r1 than buying a wreck - plus the fact you will feel real bad if you do damage it

    where as a bike that is already scratched up you will not care

    The r1 is still worth money it has value -- if you damage it it loses that value plus you have to spend money to fix it - so in essence you are losing twice as much money.
