another thing if you feel like you front end high tap back brake and if you front drops rev the bollocks out of it...if you in air comfy its also good to pull your clutch in rev ya bike and when you land try be on the gas ,lessens impact...good luck jumping defo addictive so be warned lmao

When you you use your brake to correct yourself give it a bit of clutch to avoid stalling..stay in your line and slowly it will come good!

I don't think my brain would think about braking or throttle if I'm
off balance. ssshhhhiiiiiittttt BANG more like. my posture on the bike is terrible. I need to grip more with my legs. ive done teeny tiny blip jumps before and I think I seem to pull on the bars which also twists the throttle. maybe I'm looking into this too much as usual. thanks for the tips il deffinatly walk it and watch other riders. do u hit the jump sitting then at the lip stand up in race position?

I wouldn't be doing that as a beginner mate, you'll be over the fookin bars :lol:

That's called seat bouncing, you compress your suspension until the lip of jump

And try not to bale off in mid air unless you have too ......

1. It fucking hurts when you land, and
2. It can be fucking expensive.

Err- um, Not that i'm talking from past experience :lol: :lol:
