 ??? Well was at dumbarton with him the other day and he,s just really been on a bike for a couple of months but can now get around two feet out of the pipes, he decided to try these ramps there is three in formation then you hit a massive wall ride and go back the way.

So he hits the wall ride around 30ft up then comes back clears every jump and has to hit the pipe the opposite way ie from the left and he still gets two feet first try :o fecking amazes me as i,ve tried it to no avail :-[

Oh heres a link to dumbarton click on ramps the hall 2 and you,ll see what i mean its an old pick of the wall ride thing as its double this size now.

I think its possible to learn, but one side will always feel more natural than the other with me. When I put pegs on my new school bike I purposly put them on my opposite side so that I could learn to do things that way, and to some extent it has worked as I can now roll in both ways in to a pipe, or air both ways over a hip, but I`ve not had the convidence to try and ariel the opposite way yet  :(
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
 Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
 Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
 Cry 'God for Harry, England, and Saint George!'

When I first went to Charlton ramp, I had no idea which way to drop in or carve, so I tried both and can go both ways and drop in equally badly. I guess I should be lead by my leading foot, but after repeatedly doing a hip at the heath goofy I feel comfortable doing that. So that leaves me in an odd situation, carving one way, and wanting to air another. LOL. Will try and get it sorted when I get a park bike.

I prefer left to right, however I prefer alleyooping all the time. Just feels the right way to do things. Mind you for those of you that have seen me at Rom will know I'm still in my infancy at ramps, so it's still all so new.
