OK, that was amazing. So, I've seen a bunch of videos, but I don't get the rules. I always thought you couldn't touch a foot?

Also, anyone know what pressures they're running.

Mad respect for balance like that though, wow. I want one to play with.

Short strokes....Each section has a possible score of 5. You earn a point for each time you touch a foot, stall the engine or backup. The competitor with the lowest score at the end wins.

Thanks! Makes sense. Any idea on the pressures?

I use to fly around on the offroad trails on my 2 strokes, now I have a good time putt-putting around on my 4 stroke trail bike. When its not this hot and muggy out, I like to putt along and work on my balance and just pick lines and go up and over them. Fun times.
