    Tail whips(moto style)

    For the life of me, I can't pull these off on a jump, but I can do it when bunny hopping. Does any of you have any advice for me?

    I am looking at making the rear of the bike go right. What are the steps I should follow?

    Do you mean a kickout, or do you mean a real moto whip, like a "twitch" whip?

    I mean having both wheels level and going in the same direction, having the rear way out then bringing it back straight again(all this before landing preferably).

    yeah, a twitch whip would be so hard for me on a bike.... it looks like he uses the full weight of the bike to throw it out when he does it all inverted.... in a bike you would just need some funky super steep lip and landing....

    its hard on a bike becaus ewith a MX bike you just get hard on the gas and that brings the wheel back straight but you do not have that option on a bike so its really practice and go bigger and bigger every time

    I was told that if I wanted to whip to the right, I needed to push with the left foot in that direction. Is that about right?
