xroads - I did the same as you last night; torrential rain on the way home so the wet roads had me pulling a few. Great fun - please disregard the age comment as I haven't had this much fun skidding since 7 years old on my old raleigh burner!

i told you!!

wait till it's wet and then there really easy - but remember in the dry you will need more force, and if you forget you'll get a bit of a lift.

I can't do it. I lock my right leg and then I barely skid. I can do it on grass but when it comes to the real deal I fail. It is actually beginning to annoy me!

I did one unintentionally, whilst stopping on tarmac in the wet. I should now get rid of my rear brake, but I fear my left hand might slip of the left hood if theres no cable protruding from it. Plus I like the 80's old school look!

i have a goldfinger, so no issue with regard to riding on the hoods, there aren't any.
