I've done it numerous times. It works BEST in 4wd, go about 5-7 mph and slam on the brakes will pushing your weight forward with your knees clamped to the tank. It will do it in 2wd with the front brakes only too, just not as well or as easily. I've gotten the rear tires pretty high before, not too high though. I would HATE for this beast to roll on me.
you're a big man for such a little scooter...heehee...what kind of top speeds you seeing on that little bugger...I'm betting it's a bit slower than the Rincon...what kind of goodies have you thrown at the fiddy? I thought about buying a pair for me and the kid but then I looked at a catalog full of fiddy parts and figured I'd blow more on a toy bike than on a real bike...
Corndog, I share your dislike for recreational pain and suffering...imagine how painful the learning curve is on $10,000 worth of plastic covered sport bike...I once had one tip over in the driveway and it cost $2000 to make new again...I hate to think about flipping it end over end..
RossB,...I can get my little 50 up to 37mph. Just a little slower than the rincon.Ha Ha!!. I have the tall BBR bar kit and gettin ready to put a 88 cc big bore kit in it sometime this winter. I've had it over a year, and haven't broke anything yet (that includes racing it on a motorcross track about twice a month also). You'd be amazed at how tough those things are, I'm 6'2 300lbs and the weight limit on it says 88lbs. How's that for Honda duribility ?.
And Corndog, I do wear a helmet,jacket & gloves most of the time when I ride, just not as much as I should.
