...tried 3rd and it won't (but remember , im a "toothpick")
plus , 3rd is already picking up speed and if that front wheel is up , im trying to go as slow as possible .... 1st and 2nd are enough for me

ktm's have em standard.
cut the hole in the raceglass and work wonders with a tube of Shoogoo.
look road legal but mean.
thought about that but i don't want to street fighter the bike or gut out the lights (like to keep all my stock parts mint)

but i was thinking about ordering the front racing cowl , get the acerbis and cut the lights out and fit them on the race cowl .... if this is what you mean , then yes , but im not a fan of the streefighter look.


really hope you don't sell her .... there is only a few of us left

I think wheelies are pretty cool. As others have already said, it's great to see a skilled rider doing things. But I just wish it was done away from firkin traffic on public roads. The man gets in our arses enough for being on two wheels as it is. No point in making it worse for all of us by doing stuff like that in traffic. Just my opinion.

One of these days I'll learn to do a wheelie. :P

I don't give a rat's root.

If people want to show off on motorcycles that's fine by me, as long as they don't endanger others in the process.

Better too if boorish braggarts like the OP realised that showing off doesn't somehow make them more of motorcyclist than those who choose to use their machines less flamboyantly.

If you want to see how good you really are, better take to the track to compete against others. The odd podium might win respect, but I reckon there could be a bit of learning to eat humble pie on the way.

Wheelies and stunts are like porn! Some people just don't want to admit they like it or they only like it if it isn't in public!
Just for the record... I never treat my bike like an object. I respect it and love it. My bike even has a safe word if things get to freaky! (Whisper) "it's rev limiter!"

"But it accomplishes nothing to hammer people you disagree with, you know that."....


....you're right Luke , but what bout when someone like Michael S. Cox over here ^ calls me a "bad-manner bragger" just because i don't agree with him that you need a race-track podium or a trophy to get respect.

^ better too if Squidward Q. Tentacles over here realized that trolling on the net makes HIM more of motorcyclist than those who choose to actually ride their machines ... at all !!.........

see you riding the trike now ...








BTW- are you eeeeever going to get the cbr250r !?...
.. or are you just going to troll forever !?



"trolling , trolling , trolling ...Michael keeps on trolling , Rawhide !!"

He called SS a boorish braggart without knowing the first thing about him. There is nothing boorish about knowing how to pop a wheelie and I don't believe he was bragging about being able to! Although SS's replies may, at times, seem a little over the top, he's still within his rights to reply in kind.

I didn't get the impression that he was talking about SS. I thought he was speaking in general, and really I thought he was speaking of the wheelie riders from I think it was baltimore. I guess I was thinking of the wrong thread.

Nice control SS, props out to you bud.

It's sad to see that people lack the respect for the freestyle world, I remember a few years ago everyone gave us disrespect in the FMX realm too.
