    how would a fork judge by our interest in the same gender? It wouldn't. And If people like footjams and hangfives and ----- they turn there bars around backwards. And if you turn bar with backsweap around it feels ugly. :)

    Its because everyone else does it and if you ask them why they say its easier for such and such but really it just a way to fit in IMO

    Personal preference. Corey Funk rides his backwards, I ride mine backwards. It makes footjams and hangfives easier, and it's also makes your scooter more stable when turning at high speeds. Like I said, it's just personal preference.
