Yesterday I rode for the first time in a while (like actual serious riding instead of just messing around). Landing a few tricks that I've been working on for a while, so yipee! Thats my brag

For WW you need to lean back more, so if you're falling off the front, lean back more (like w/ most things).

To keep from falling on your but/head, when you fall off let the uni crash and put your feet down off the back. It's kind of like the uni takes off leaving you just standing there.

and ww is all about the twisting hip motion too, it took me a while to find that crucial part out.

I hope this thread takes off, i like hearing how good all you guys are doing

Anyway to my brag of the day.....Today i received my 36er!!

I've not long been home assembling it and now it's not long after midnight but that didn't stop me, oh no....I've taken my first ride on it up and down my street and it flies!!

I had a couple of shakey starts on it but once i started moving there was no stopping me

I had a car follow me down my street and the lady in the passenger seat was waving and smiling at me

Can't wait to ride to work on it tomorrow....Hope i make it ok!
