Is it me or?

I used to be a stunter before I bought my daytona. I had a f4I and that bike would love to be on BP, is it me or does the d675 have a really high balance point? I can't seem to find it.! I feel like ima loop out.

I blame the rear pegs they're tooo forward.

Just a couple sessions of me on the F4I

Honestly as long as it's done smartly and safely I don't mind it. The problem is the stigma stunting gets because of these douchnozzles flying down the highway on one wheel. Or when they stop traffic so they can burn circles in the street. Do it safely and out of the way then I don't mind. Haven't been to a stunt event so actually might be fun to watch.

Well, I'll give you that you were at least in a parking lot... I would say the 675 isn't the best stunter out there. Going fast in twisties... Razor. Get a Speed Triple. That thing is a wheelie monster... My G-ma could get it up on an S3...

Get a street triple if you want to stunt. But really stunting is bleh, but as long as it isnt that stupid shit you see going down a highway or some ghetto ass shit like that i dont really care what you do with your bike.
