Hell, Buz-



If you don't mind replacing fork seals and the occasional drive belt you too could get some one wheel time!



A friend of mine used to wheelie his Ultra all the time. It was right impressive when he did it with the hack on it, lemme tell ya!

Great, just when I was beginning to convince myself my wheelies looked cool...

Watching him depress the compression releases prior to starting the bike leads me to believe he's running something a little bit hotter than a stock TC88.

Default AFLAC!

Ok so this has nothing to do with pulling a wheelie on a geezer glide. So I'm riding home after hitting the local H-D shop to pick up some S100. Seems that Martin decided to start a bug collection on my Ducati during our ride to Borrego Springs on Tuesday.



So, I'm riding home on my Ducati and a friggin' duck flys out in front of me! I don't know who's eyes were bigger, mine or the duck's. Well I narrowly missed my feathered friend and made it home safely.



Now what are the chances of a duck being hit by a Duc?



Thankfully I wasn't riding an MV Agooseta, a Bultaco or godforbid, a Geezer Glide.

Dumping the clutch into a short wheelie, using the pipes for "wheelie bars" and slamming the front end down doesn't count as mch of a wheelie in my book, 850 lbs or not.



Remember Doug Domokos (aka the "wheelie king") wheelying the 6 cyclinder Kawi KZ1300 PAST vertical and breaking the taillight, then using the rear brake to return to a controlled, sustained wheelie. That was impressive.



I thought the Village People joke was a riot.

I'd take your money every day because I wouldn't stay still long enough to allow the guy to wheelie an 850lb motorcycle over me....

I'm sure there is an easier way to turn the straight cuts into slash cuts.
