1) Getting my bike and my son's bike out of the truck bed without dropping them on myself, then back into the truck after the ride
2) Not looking like a "has-been observed trials rider who now rides a dirt bike"
3) Not looking like my 6 y.o. son can ride better than me

No footers and a hand off the bars I think are the best for newbies. Maybe for old guys too, cuz that's about all I can do ha ha. I did do a gnarly whip, and I mean GNARLY whip Sunday. I did not mean to do it at all. I had to stop after that and get my heart rate down. I would love to learn how to do a scrub or a good whip.

Yeh an accidental whip on a bike is one thing but when you do it in a xc race on a quad it's a whole nother relm of shock, I came around a corner in the mx section and hit the jump crooked I guess but I sure did notice it

I was at the dunes once where there was a freestyle ramp setup for anyone to try. I was watching these 2 guys pulling off some pretty sick tricks. I thought how hard could it be to just jump the thing normally? Then I saw a guy try it, went really nose high, stomped the back brake killing the engine but saving his ***!! then landed barely making it with a humongous roar from the crowd!!! (I decided not to try it.)
