If there's a will, there's a way haha. But I'll definitely not be attempting any of those at all as I'm just not skilled enough for it and rather not ruin a perfectly good bike so early...

I'm not even brave enough to disable ABS that doing those stunts are just out of the picture. But taking on turns at higher speeds and getting in some nice leans... now that's something ;)

There's definitely a huge learning curve involved in doing things like these and nobody just hops on and gets it right the first time. You're going to have to drop some bikes, take some cuts and bruises, and go through some frustrations... but eventually.. you'll get it!

That's why you start off with a bike that won't break the bank and your heart if there's ever an incident. But to remove the ABS, you may need to outright remove it from the body while leaving the electronics portion of the ABS pump. Had to do a little research to figure that out, though it may not work for every BMW model.

Why not buy a supermoto if you want to do stunts? Yeah, BMW marketing uses a heavily modified bike to stir emotions, but it's nothing more than a marketing ploy.

Same as buying a Chevrolet because that car brand Won nascar. The car you're buying is nothing like the one racing / used for marketing.

Seems like the ABS will be disabled if you pull fuse number 4. Not suggesting that you do this!

At most, I'd do an accidental wheelie with too much throttle when taking off from a stop. Maintaining one will be an interesting undertaking, but not too high up on my priority list especially with the GS model.

I'd be too scared to pull a fuse anyways. :p With my luck, the bike will never turn on again.

Lmao

*pulls fuse* bike goes up in flames haha

I mean, I wouldn't mind trying it but just not on the G310.. I'd go buy another bike for like $1500 and mess around with that first

Getting a cheap second hand motorcycle for wrenching purposes sounds like a great way to learn how to perform future maintenance on your own. Maybe try your hand at modding that one before moving on to a new bike like the G310R.

At least if it goes up in flames, it won't be as sad.

I typically watch a lot of "Do it with Dan" on YouTube and looking at him building and fabricating his bikes with literally no professional training or anything in his garage gives me a lot of inspiration to just get out there and try things!

Just make sure while you're doing that its within your local by-laws, not always is work like this permitted. You would be surprised.

Never knew the "Do it with Dan" existed until now and holy cow is he amazing. Built a bike from scratch and without any professional training. Granted, I probably won't have the time or dedication to do something similar, but at least I can learn some simpler maintenance procedures from him.

I agree doing this degree of work in your garage and having the wrong set of neighbors could result in a bit of a sticky situation but... where's the fun in not trying.

He definitely is pretty amazing but I agree, I wouldn't try to build a bike from scratch anytime soon, but just looking at the basics of what he's doing and modifications, really gets me wanting to start buying some tools. Especially a welder! You could do so much with it!

I can see so many scratch marks on the bike's sliders and protective cage. :D That's to be expected when you're trying to wheelie in the rain. Not something I'd try anytime soon, but the blue cage does look nice on the g310r.
