Okay, I gotta say, the outriggers are plain stupid. If you need those, you need to be DRIVING A CAR!!! Yes the pucker factor is pretty hihg in that situation, but the rider is also giving some body english to stay on there. If you do as the rider did and don;t know what's coming, chances are an untrained rider will pop off the high side regardless, imo. And what kinda liability issue are those things anyway?
Geez at some of the stuff people create to try to mnake up for a lack of skill.
I go out on the range regularly and practice the braking skills and swerving and so on. Just to stay good with it. Proper technique would go much further, than relying on some device, be it outriggers, loud pipes, etc.
thanks for the video.
