    A dab is putting your foot down to stabilize.

    So there IS... dabbing?
    Back in the day, we used to have rides where there were ”no dabbing” rules...
    We have gotten soft...:coffee:

    I’ve never had to bunny hop a hobo before. I might let the group down on this one. Just throwing it out there.

    Edit: hmmmm... I still have a kid home for summer. I wonder if he’d let me practice on him.

    Is bunny hopping Hobo’s a thing?
    If it is, I might have a new perspective of the Fullerton Loop! :thumbsup:

    The locals are not going to like that characterization. It might affect their Google ranking. :eek:

    But, I’ll admit... It’s probably 30 minutes away for me and this will be my first. :oops:

    The best part about this entire shindig is the verbal bashing of the Floop. We shall see this weekend how the Floop reacts to this blasphemy.

    This. I’d love to come hang with everyone again, but after being gone all day for Big Bear last weekend, taking another fullish day the very next weekend would require the use of my birthday present from the family, below. I be saving that for Cannell. I'll ride this weekend, but it will be a local dawn patrol.
