Motorcycle stunt riding, often referred to as stunting, is a motorcycle sport characterized by stunts involving acrobatic manoeuvrings of the motorcycle and sometimes the rider. Common maneuvers in stunt riding include wheelies, stoppies, and burnouts. Sport bikes have become a common vehicle for stunts.
Here are the tricks and names of stunting:
- Christ – Standing on either tank or seat while assuming the pose of Jesus Christ.
- Reverse Christ – doing a Christ while facing toward the tail of the bike. (judgement day)
- Leap of Faith – standing on seat, and taking as high of a leap as possible into the air to land onto the tank. Ninja/Karate mid-air antics are encouraged.
- Leap of Death – Standing on the rear passenger seat and jumping to the tank. Perfected by team something from the mid-west. Looks awesome, but dents the tank easily.
- Switchback – while riding down the road, jump or climb around so that your back is facing the front of the bike and riding backwards.
- Skitching – sliding on your feet off to either sides of the bike or the rear of the bike.
- Arch – two man skitching side by side with their feet touching each other forming an arch.
- Jedi Knight – Rodeo style skitching on the right side of the bike, kicking your feet up and over the bike then landing on the other side and still skitching. Named and perfected by JT Holt.
- Tank handstand – doing a hand stand on the tank while rolling down the street.
- switch back hand stand – reverse handstand on the tank or seat while going down the road. A switch back into a handstand combo.
- Rolling Burn Out – rolling burn out while standing on feet pegs. Weight over front handlebars/clip-ons.
- Cross up Burn Out – sit tong on handlebar doing a rolling burnout.
- Lay-Z Boy – sit on tank and slide back to a laying position.
