I know the XR is built like a brick shithouse but I didnt think it would be strong enough to take that kinda abuse and stay straight. :o

Maybe its heavy fir a reason then! :P

What makes you think that it didn't bend?.....just saying...being a devils advocate, and all that...

He did land it the right way up, but it did have highly modified suspension...that must have helped immensely.

How do you practice something like that on a XR :o
I've seen a programme where other stunt riders practice flips over water using dirt bikes, but try that on a XR and it would empty the lake when it went wrong, and you'd need a crane to get it out afterwards. :lol:
That's without thinking about the damage it would do to the rider if it landed on top of him :cry:
If it ain't broke, chances are I didn't touch it :roll:
