    The Stunting Thread

    Stunting terminology for those who don't know:

    12:00 wheelie
    A wheelie past that balance point of the bike. The back brake must be used here to keep the bike from flipping. People who ride 12:00s commonly scrape the taillight while riding the wheelie.

    180° stoppie
    Doing a stoppie and turning the bike around with the back tire still in the air so the endo is landed facing the opposite way it started. Turning it 180 degrees.

    Circle Wheelie
    Doing a wheelie and riding it in a circle. It is a slow wheelie can be done using usually one or two traffic lanes on a road or a parking lot.

    Apehanger
    Doing a 12:00 wheelie you stand the bike straight up and hit the taillight. While the bike is scraping along like that you jump off of the bike and let your legs drag behind it while holding on the handle bars. Then you do a pull-up and ride the bike away.

    Balance Point (BP)
    When riding a wheelie there is a point where the bike stops accelerating and you can continue doing the wheelie with no gain in speed. This is the balance point where your bike is perfectly balanced.

    Can-Can A stand-up wheelie where you take one leg and cross it over in front of your body to the opposite side of the bike.

    Christ / Christ Air To stand up on your moving bike. Mostly on the tank, and sometimes on the seat or passenger seat. It is called a "Christ" because you generally extend your arms while standing on the bike to resemble Christ on the cross.

    Crossed-up
    1. Also see highchair. This is when you sit on your gas tank and put your feet over the windshield. A crossed-up wheelie, or stoppie or a crossed-up donuts. 2. Some say that a crossed-up trick is when you do a highchair and cross your legs. 3. When you do a stoppie or wheelie and your arms are "crossed-up" meaning right hand on clutch and left hand on brake.

    Donut / Circle Burnout

    When doing a burnout you spin in a circle. This is what causes all the pretty black circles in the roads.

    Duct TapeA stunters favourite repair tool. When you "crunchify" your bike, duct tape will keep you riding until you can get another replacement part.

    Flamingo
    While doing a wheelie you stand up on your seat and bring one leg straight behind you.

    Frog Wheelie
    This is when you do a wheelie while standing on the gas tank.

    Furred
    Often stunters don’t want to repaint their bikes so they just cover them with fur to hide any imperfections. This also acts like duct tape and holds broken plastics together.

    Handstand
    While riding your bike down the road you do a handstand on the moving motorcycle.

    Highchair
    See crossed up. This is when you sit on your gas tank and put your feet over the windshield. Generally its a highchair wheelie but sometimes is also used to reference a highchair stoppie or sitting highchair while doing donuts.

    Spreader (also known as Iron Cross)
    See tank wheelie. This is when you sit on your gas tank and do a wheelie with your legs spread out like you are doing the splits.

    Leap of Faith
    To jump from your seat to your gas tank while riding a moving bike.

    Loop or Looping
    To flip your bike over backwards while doing a wheelie and crash.

    Fender Grab
    While doing a wheelie, stoppie or burnout rider will reach over their front fairing and grab their front fender.

    What's the term for WT's special move? A 180 suplex wheelie with a 1440 degree gravel roll?

    It's never been named because he's the only one who's been stupid enough to do it!

    Well if we're looking for terms to describe things that only Jimmy is stupid enough to do then we'd fill a library.
