I love stunt riding and watching it etc. but I don't think there needs to be a place on the forum for a bike that is very rarely stunted. There are plenty of stunting forums for that. I don't think maybe three members need their own section

Maybe we should clean house then. The ZX Network section has 9 sections that sees no activity. Ok to have those nine but not one more?

1.) What 9 are those? Just curious.

2.) I vote yes. For the most part Im not a stunter fan. I have mad respect for the skills they have. I respect the work it takes to learn it. The dents, dings, cuts, road rash, stitches, casts and general soreness from the crashing and for the life of me I wish I could do a mad stoppie. This is a ZX-10R forum and if there are 10R stunters out there then they should be more than welcome here to share in the community and knowledge base here.

No, we're not going to make infinite unused sections. YSR has said he'll do if there's enough support for it. Ummmkay?

With all the talk yesterday about the site not being active I think this could be a great way to give members something new to talk about.

also, the zx10r isn't usually stunted because they tend to break apart easily from stunting, gen 1's cracked welds like they were gsxrs
you are right, but usually they gotta be modded like crazy, try it on a new bike and it will turn out bad.. I don't stunt at all and never did, never was my thing however if there is a segment of the zx-10 owners that use them for stunting there is no reason a site for that type of rider should be prevented from being discussed on the ZX-10R.Net site, I mean the site is not for old riders or guys that just ride to work and home or the track, there was no mention of that, its for any and all riders or anyone that enjoys the zx-10r..that would include stunters.. its only fair.. At the same time it does not mean they don't have rules and conduct expectations, no exceptions. Either way even this thread alone is a good start at seeing where the site could be more inclusive.

People talk about wheelies every now and then, but that's pretty much where it ends. I haven't seen any discussions about any other stunts (but I don't read everything here). I suspect that there may be a FAQ "1. How do I wheelie? 2. How do I stoppie?", and then an occasional post once per season. Maybe someone could create a poll, but not like "are you ok with a stunt section?", and instead "if there was a stunting section, would you actively participate in it?"
