...that's funny! I tried practicing the same thing in my front yard Sun. afternoon! (I must have some pitifully weak abs,.. I was sweatin' and huffin' and puffin' after about 10min. Need to get more "cardio" in the gym!!)

I got a lot more "pop" from the nose also, but I'm riding an Arbor Roundhouse 163W. It's a directional twin so I've got more nose than tail to flex. If i'm not mistaken, the directional twin is stiffer in the tail than nose by design as well isn't it? Anyway, I fell a LOT more often when trying to pop the tail than I did the nose. but this was also ALL done from a stationary, level, non moving position. Haven't had the guts to try ollies or nollies while moving yet. Especially on all the hard icy shit we've had around here lately!

If the warm(r),.. (ish?) (...weird F#$%ing) weather softens the snow enough, maybe I'll try a few this weekend. I definitely don't want to "F" myself up before my vacation tho.!!!
