Ok - I know what the problem is.
I'm the most inflexible human being alive, I once did kick boxing for a while but it was embarrassing having my partner hold the pad near his shins.
I've tried to be more flexible, I stretch every day, I think I could kick someone in the knees now.
So there's a good chance I'm on my tod when it comes to swinging my leg over the back wheel.
As for high kicking over the handlebars - that would definitely be a spectator sport..
