To pull off a decade, roll forward with your left foot on the back peg and your right foot on the seat post. Do a small front brake endo for momentum. When the back wheel hits the ground, apply the back brake and pull up on the handle bars. Quickly jump over the head tube and land where the top tube meets the seat post with your left foot. It helps if you look where you want your foot to go. Let the front wheel hit the ground, step on your preset pedal, and ride away to the nearest 7-11 to celebrate. You can also link a fire hydrant to a decade. This is most useful when you come out of a long link of different tricks.
In order to do a backyard, you must manuver yourself into a "backwards riding" position. Put both feet on the back pegs, while sitting on the handlebars. Apply the front and back brakes to stop and immediately stand up and take your right foot off the peg and kick the back tire forwards. After a good kick, apply the back brake and pull up on the handlebars. From here your foot has to take over for braking. With your foot on the back tire release the back brake and let go of that grip(you use this arm for balance). Kick the back tire forwards and drag your foot on the tire as you bring your foot to the original position. (This technique is called "scuffing") This will keep the front wheel off the ground. Once you're through scuffing, let the front wheel drop to the ground and roll in the same direction for a little bit. Apply the brakes again and step back on to the pedal so that you return to the backwards riding position. From there manuver yourself back to the regular riding position and race back to to your real backyard and have a BBQ.
This yard never needs any mowing or watering. All you need to do is roll along slowly and and put your right foot over the handlebars. Instantaneously apply the front brake, step on the tire with your right foot, and move your left foot from the pedal to the peg. Once you're on the front of the bike release the front brakes and start to scuff the front wheel. This trick is usually done with one hand on the handlebars and the other free to swing around in the air for balance. I believe that when the trick is done without any hands it's called a "freak squeak." Once you've had enough, you can allow the back wheel to drop to the ground, move your left foot back to the pedal and pull your right foot over the bars. When you return home you can try to get $10 for that "yard" work that needed to be done.
This isn't "Sounds of the 70's" and there won't be any disco dancing. All you need to here is to manuver yourself so that you are rolling backwards and your right foot is over the cross on the top tube and your left foot is on the left front peg. Grab the the seat with your right hand and apply the front brake. Pull up on the seat and start scuffing the front wheel. You can take your hand off of the grip if you feel a need to be Paul Osicka. Once you're through with that, you can let the back wheel hit the ground and do a smoothie out of it. You can also stop and pull your leg over the bar and manuver yourself back to a normal riding position as I do in the movie.
If you happen to start layering your yard with animal lard, your neighbors may question you, wondering where your straight jacket is located. However, if you bust a cool lard yard in front of your house, your neighbors might find themselves in a straight jacket as they go crazy because of your radness. To do a lard yard, do a half-lash and when you are in position, apply the back brakes and let go with your left hand. Twist the bars 180 degrees and pull up. At the same time you should be looking at your back wheel and starting to scuff. This trick is usually done in circles and is easier if you tweak your elbow upwards, into the air. To ride out. Apply the back brake, grab the grip with your left hand, and let the front wheel hit the ground. Step on the pedal and ride away.
If you travel to India or Africa, you might be fined or even imprisoned for elephant poaching. However, elephant gliding has yet to be banned anywhere in the world and you don't even need an A-K. To do an elephant glide, do a bar hop or just step over your bars to get to the front of your bike. From there, your can sit on the bars and grab the seat with your right hand, then apply the front brake to get the back wheel off the ground. Stand up and pull the frame around to your right side and start to scuff. When you've had enough elephant gliding, you can move the frame so that it's behind you, drop the back wheel, and exit like a handlebar ride. I prefer to start scuffing and spin the frame around to my right side by turning and leaning the bike. I then catch the frame on my right as it comes around. To exit, I let the backwheel hit the ground and roll for a little bit. I put my right hand on the grip and apply the back brakes. I then pull up on the bars let go with my left hand twist around, then returning my left hand to its grip, I ride off. Jeah, I have to say it was a good day!
For Dumptrucks, you need to turn your handlebars backwards and roll slowly while standing on the back pegs. Pull up into a wheelie with your right foot behind you for balance. Once you feel solid in that position, tap the front brakes to stop your wheel from spinning. (Fingers don't like to be caught in spokes) Grab on to the right side of the front forks. Once you are solid in this position, let go of the handlebars with your left hand and turn the bars 90 degrees. Balance there long enough to pull your right leg through to the front and put it on the back tire. (This is the hardest part of the trick, The longer you can balance in this "halfway" position, the easier it is to pull your leg through and get it to the tire before you fall backwards It also helps to look down at your backtire so that you are sure to put it in the right place.) Once you are in the dumptruck position, scuff the back tire until you are pleased. There are many ways to exit this trick. I prefer to turn the bars forward while I'm scuffing and switch hands on the pegs so that I can reachback and grab the grip. Once I grab the grip, I stop scuffing and leave my foot on the tire as a brake and lower my front wheel to the ground. I then manuver myself into a regular riding position and ride away.

This trick has been around a lot longer than the movie and Sylvester Stalone can't hang with with this cliff! First off you should be able to do hang 5's behind the seat so that you are sitting on the tire instead of the seat. Once you get the hang of that, put your free foot on its peg and pinch the frame with your knees. This is how I hold up the bike. (Some people don't pinch the frame and end up holding up the bike with the seat.) Once I have the frame pinched, I can let go of the bars and use my arms for balance. To ride out, grab the bars and let the back wheel fall to the ground. When learning this trick it's a lot better to jump off and let the bike flip over forwards than it is to step backwards. Definitely DON'T step down while in the middle of the trick or you'll get punch in your stomach from your seat that even Rocky couldn't handle.
Forward Death Truck
To do this trick you should be able to do a forward rope-a-roni. This trick is also called a "forward straddle-roni." To do the forward straddle-roni, do a halflash and pull up on the front wheel exactly like a forward rope-a-roni except throw your leg over the head tube. This trick is a lot easier to do with one hand. When you pull up into it, be sure to get the bike ALMOST vertical. At the almost vertical position you can take your hand off and ease the bike into the vertical position. This is to make sure that you don't go over forwards. To get out of the trick you put your left hand back on the grip and lean back. Apply your brake so that you can slow down and swing your leg back over your head tube while pivoting. Step on your pedal and ride away knowing that you pulled yet another death-defying trick.
