You're all wrong.



Get a trials bike.

I've got an old dual-sport converted XR600 that might change your mind.

There you go. Nothing else comes close.

Default You've obviously never ridden a Buell

Rolling along at 2500 rpm in first gear on my Buell M2 Cyclone, roll off throttle, then back on, bingo baby! Instant wheelie!!

Had a chance to ride an Aprilia Tuono awhile back. Not really sure why they even bothered to put a front wheel on it. Could have just put rubber caps on the ends of the front forks for take offs and landings.

Default We're scraping the bottom of the barrel now

I, apparently along with Gabe, am suprised that something like this would get posted in the news section with a link on the homepage. What, is this the Starboyz/D-Aces discussion panel now? In fact, I am so amused that I will put my money where my mouth is and write you guys an actual GOOD question so perhaps you might post it?? Stand by, it will be in your mail shortly. Gabe, I'll write you one too.

Pardon me Abe, could you pass the Grey Poupon?



Don't be such an elitist. What is dragging your knee around a corner? It's just a stunt. No different from wheelies, stoppies, etc. except that it has the corporate sanctioned approval of various governing bodies to lionize it as a noble and "legitimate" use of a motorcycle.



Lighten up fella, and tell Chauncey to put a little less starch in your white collar next time.
