Cool Kansas PD loves SuMo?

Coming back from a little hooligan dride, about mile away from my house. Country road, no one around (or so I thought). So I stand one up, ride it for a half a mile, than look to the side and here is a Motorcycle Cop perpendicular to the road sitting in someones driveway. I though "fuck, here we go", instead he just smiles and nods at me. WTF?!?

Than I realize my GoPro was off

If half the cops around here are half this cool, I'm gonna love this place

getting it up is easy. keeping it there is where some practice comes into place. You're way off the balance point, so you're accelerating and hence running out of gear. Sure, you could keep upshifting, but that just means you'll keep going faster. Or, you could lean that fucker back a bit more (while covering/riding the rear brake) and just cruise at the same speed for as long as you feel like (or your old muscles allow you to lol)

rode for over 20 years and never could get the hang of that whole rear brake balance point thing. really ticks me off, came so close to buying a quad so many times with the soul purpose of practicing that. LOL




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

I have never touched my rear brake in a wheelie. I use throttle control.

I'd stop you just to check out your bike and see if you'd run. A good amount of bikes down here just run from us. Stopped a 04 gixxer 600 last night that seriously thought about running. I think he didn't because he couldn't get out of 1st. I asked him if this was first bike he said "no I had a raptor and a yfz". Moron

That would've been cool. Much less confusing than the reaction i got lol. Is it weird I actually for a second considered going back to shoot some shit with him?

Quadtard. That explains his stupidity. I'm surprised he was actually riding the bike, not doing endless donuts on it in a dirt parking lot.
