Manuals are a bike term where you wheelie without peddling, so I'm not sure how you would manage to get up on the rear wheel and stay there without using the throttle. :thinking:

X-ups are a BMX trick. when you turn the wheel backwards in the air it makes your arms form a X. You cant do a X-up on a dirtbike unless something has gone VERY WRONG
X (cross) ups were an old saying of what is now known as a "whip"...if you were riding a bike (mc or bmx) and got air, moved the bars you were "crossed up"...didn't have to be all the way around.....
Right on both accounts and I did ride/race both. I keep a GT properformer in my garage incase they want to have a "RAD" remake and need my skills. Same goes for my 85yz125, I keep that incase they want to recast "THE DIRTBIKE KID" or "Supercross"..


OK so endo's are now stoppies, yes a cross-up is twisting the bars kinda like a whip but remember doing "tabletops" on your mx or bmx bike? Hitting any jump just laying the bike completly flat... more like a whip mixed with a scrub... I wish I could find my box of oldschool pics.

"I'd time your laps but I don't have a calendar"

"I got the holeshot....then fought my way, to the back of the pack"

CDA posted one up somewhere...there was a picture of a guy laying it flat (crossing it up) on a T shirt I had...Old school, half face, Joffa mouth guard, leather chest protector, and HI POINT BOOTS (I think).....good stuff :thumb: I guess it's called a whip ow because they whip the rear end around where we would just go straight but lay over flat...:ride:

No, I won't let them:prof: but they do complain all the time about having nothing to do. I blame technology. If they don't have TV, Vidoes games and computers they all would be a mess. When I was kid, a shoe string and stick is all you needed to have fun and a tin can to kick could keep you busy all day. :lol:

If you were real luckly, on of the rich kids on the block would get sidewalk chalk with his allowance, and mabey we would draw you a hopscotch court!

Saying I heard at an off road race...A guy crashed...a spectator said "wow, looks like that guy ran out of talent"....:prof:
