There is no way I would fit into that shape, or into that tight of a space between the toilet/sink.

On the other hand if you practise to tight of a turn and scare the [email protected]#t out of yourself, it will be a easy clean up.

I think both of those guys have youtube videos, the first guy does have a real cornering video and he says you should be on your "TEEEPY Toes", the other guy does spoofs. Pretty funny stuff

Fasto and AzIt, both of you guys need to work on your head turns, before you end up in the sand/wall. those are poor demonstrations.

In a world full of people, only some want to ride. Isn't that crazy?
