Wheelie ticket fines are around $900.00 bucks now, 'specially if you're going over the speed limit when you get caught.

So watch it and don't give bad examples to the younger generation by posting exhibiiton of speed pictures and reckless driving on an otherwise fine website.

Hahhah, yeah right...can I interest anyone in some beach front property in Mexico?

Not sure how firmly your tongue is in your cheeck, Cuddy. If a cop really did give you a lecture about a wheelie in your chair, he should be fired for wasting taxpayer money!

Nope, not kidding. I've got a "Quickie" electric wheelchair that has this speed adjustment knob on the joy stick. When you crank it all the way up, the thing hauls a$$ (about 10 mph) and you can hook some really good wheelies from a dead stop.

I "wheelied" it across the street in a cross walk in front of a bike cop and he hit the siren and "pulled me over". My wife couldn't believe it. At least I didn't make a break for it through the news stand place. Talk about a slow speed persuit!

Looking forward to feeling that mid range punch. The suzuki which I have now, comes in at about 8k and turns into another bike completely.

What makes you think I can handle 64 hp? When we raced our Kawi H2s (which also has something like that) to the summer cottage through winding gravel road I used to have some unpleasant moments of serious doubts

Once a crazy a$$ biker, always a crazy a$$ biker. That don't know whether to laugh or cry. Sounds like you are a seriously out of the box guy. So, I am laughing myself silly

I swear to god, every time I think I couldn't think worse of the capabilities of the police force I get to hear a story that makes it worse.

I figure that if the cops have time to do play these stupid "little hitler" ganes then you need some layoffs on the force. Too many cops!

At least he figured that you couldn't fight back. Sounds like modern "law enforcement", doesn't it?

Reminds me of an episode of Cops filmed in my neck o' the woods. They busted into this trailer looking for crank and stolen property, when the wheel out the prime suspect he's some shirtless biker freak in a wheelchair with his hands handcuffed in his lap. I guess Pierce County's Finest though he was gonna' take off on them.

Yeah, and to make matters worse it was the same cop who busted me for doing an 80 mph wheelie on my City X after I almost got dusted by some maniac in a school bus 1/2 a block away from my house. Oh the irony...

Thinking of putting nitrous on the Handivan Town & Country. Gotta get my kicks somehow...
