Default Chill man if people want to pay for it so be it.

I think it is cool that Keith is doing this. Hey if people are willing to pay so be it. What better way to do it than in a controlled environment. Kind of like how drag racing started.

Default You are correct sir

I think you are just exercising your right to prusue happiness. You are absolutely right "People who ride wheelies in traffic and in public view are morons. People who ride them in the boonies out of public view are having fun. " Although my first wheelie was by accident in public I am now addicted to it. I only do it far away from the public view.

Default Re: Ride like Rossi

The word I've seen (hell, it might have been here, might have been in a Brit rag) is that some of the electronic control units can actually do stuff like this. Sensors on the fork can track wheel travel, and it can modulate power to keep the front wheel on the ground. Supposedly one of the new 1000cc bikes in AMA or WSB might be using this...



I could just be on crack though...

Default Re: Why some can't wheelie?

"Does anyone have any thoughts on why some riders seem to wheelie quite naturally while others just can't get it? "



Butt size. The bigger the easier.

Default Re: Screw Rossi, ride like Jamie

It was here, in the article about the Formula extreme (or is it Xtreme? I can't remember...) GSX-R 1000. I'm sure it's in the archives somewhere...I think it was Jamie Hacking's bike?
