are youtube tutorials effective?

>>
>>44318
Yes, personally I could never get the hang of backside 360's and getting explanations from friends didn't work either. 1 YouTube video got me the whole rotation and the board to follow consistently.
It's all about if the person doing the tutorial actually knows how to break down the trick though. Never liked Aaron Kyro's trick tips though.
>>
A lot of them are really bad but I remember back in the day when I got really frustrated with heelflips (this was in the early 2000s when broadband internet was new) I found a video on the internet explaining them really good, and after watching it I went outside and landed 10 heelflips in a row immediately. I guess some people are good teachers and others aren't, because I watched many tre flip tutorials and none of them had advice that helped me, I ended up just having to meditate and visualize hard to figure those out, and the same goes for kickflips. Once I finally got kickflips down though some other tricks came extremely easy, like I learned to varial flip and backside flip with almost no effort at all merely days later.

That's what the article boils down to. Seriously, the idea that there are men, on this planet, RIGHT FUCKING NOW, that aren't seeking the approval of women in all things is anathema to this harpy.

You also want to check the base of the tree for root decay and make sure the surrounding soil is well drained and not too loose. When in doubt give the tree a firm shove to ensure it is rooted solidly

Oh yeah there's tons to learn. Especially when you get into tree biology, understanding how their hormones and stress response works, using that knowledge to prune them effectively. Not enough people who do the work actually understand what they're doing when they cut on trees, end up doing more harm than good a lot of the time. This is a fantastic book if you wanna learn about it

Wow such a big strong hunky man mm wow so strong :) wanna fuck? I'm also a man by the way.

On a rainy day, you cant longboard downhill without major risk.

i cant do cycling superfast with my thin ass triathalon tires

/fit/ has forbidden me olympic weighlifting for 4years now (thanks clownworld, cherry on top... cunt)

the inside world is such a drag, people like me were never meant to sit under a roof made of solid material, the rooftop my people dwell best under is that of the night sky and a shelter that comes with you.

so i was thinking super moto / husqvarna 701 with a bit of trail hiking once i get to the spot (loaded backpack), however i want to hear this boards thoughts.

pic related seems to be the best in class option for weight and power ratio i want.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUVVpyZGQ10
vid related looked interesting to me, and also eying an african twin if they made it 700 and smaller weight option, but this is just a rumor.

thanks for the feedback; are you or any sources you know of turned off by the husqvarna 701 enduro lr - it seems to be the lightest and packing the most punch, and yeah the tenere seems like the only competition, but heavier and i hate the exhaust placement relative to the husq; i'd prefer a tighter profile when panniers are affixed.

this board is mega slow and that was mega disappointing.

i have never thought of this, but was wondering what capability this husq with supermoto tires would have in the offroad; i have heard it is quite capable - maybe that offsets the problem you highlighted?

although i would think dual tires for a mountain cruise not a bad idea to swap for. suburbia and minor off road was the here and now unless the particular seller has options i guess.

oh i was looking at that ktx300 suzuki popped out, but figured if i can get dmz400 at that small too if i wanted to save money for other ascessories.

my concern with my is i want to pack a military style backpack for camping, and keep side panniers and back. the weight of myself, i begin to wonder if i need more of a pack mule moto moto...

what would be the best setup to defend against an invasion of these (picrel) from the distance?
>>
you don't need thin tyres to go fast, in fact the thin tread meme has been ever so slowly dying over the last decade. I run tubeless 48mm and I literally hit 30mph/50km if I want to.
your bike probably isn't set up for thicker treads but my rims are only 23mm so it's not impossible.

>>51202
Dual sport tyres are pretty good off road and miles better on road. They don't deal with mud all that well but everywhere else they're great.
Not had amy experience on the 701 or had any mates buy one but there's a large community around them so I'd ask around there.
Don't go with pack mule life, carrying around loads is going to be painful, just pack light, you don't need much to camp and hike comfortably. You can fit loads in two soft panniers and a roll on top.

>>>/out and >>>/o tends to have some of these types of threads every now and then if this board's too slow.

>>51211
This board has an identity crisis anyways, at this point I'd call it more of a niche sport board. Should've kept it as /asp.

You are never to fat or old to skate on a healthy diet of concrete and pain.

Skateboarding is 90% Mental, 10% Physical, 110% Send.

Beginner Tip: Visualize, Stretch, and Practice, Practice, Practice. Record yourself in slow motion video.

Trick Tip: A 50-50 is a grind where the skater grinds along a rail or surface edge with both trucks. This can be done by jumping on a rail or towards a surface edge and simply pressing the “Grind” button, Triangle on the Playstation controller and Y on an Xbox controller.

Skating Alone Is Good For The Soul.

Skate Parks Are A Training Ground, Not A Fashion Catwalk.

Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is the term used to describe brain degeneration likely caused by repeated head traumas. CTE is a diagnosis made only at autopsy by studying sections of the brain. The symptoms of CTE include memory loss, confusion, impaired judgment, impulse control problems, aggression, depression, anxiety, suicidality, parkinsonism, and, eventually, progressive dementia. These symptoms often begin years or even decades after the last brain trauma or end of active athletic involvement.

Also as a girl literally all you have to do is ask a guy to get lunch or dinner with you and than do it like 4 times in a row and than suck his dick and than he's your boyfriend. It's literally that simple you dumb dumb.
