All takin on a closed road, with safety team on standby, local authorities notified.

Just learned the standups and stoppies this summer after 18 years of riding, very addicting.

Lets see some of you guys

Thanx, about 60'-70'+ after I get a couple going to warm up. I know I could go farther, just dont want to crash so I bring it up slow.

I do stunt, just not stunning (NoStunner)

Just curious, what is your tire pressure at? It looks kind of low, but nothing too crazy. I want to learn wheelies. Just curious what you think I should set the psi to.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

I dont run mine any lower than what the tire says. But what you see in his pics is probly just cause when you have 600+ pounds on one tire they tend to bubble out a bit

Your tire psi can be left as you would normally have it. Lower tire pressure helps side-to-side balance when doing slower wheelies, but your better off just leaving it where it is. Changing tire pressure will also obviously affect your everyday riding. Your 954 is a wheelie machine so you should have no problems. Just take it slow and then it will all come together after practice.

I run front and back about 3-4 lbs low. Nothing major but it helps cut down the wobble.

This gives the front a little less "tank slappin" on setting it down from a wheelie. I havent noticed a difference in endos tho

the back is a litlle easier to keep straight with a couple less PSI

I will be tryin to lower the back tire pressure lower (20-25 lbs) for the slow (20-25mph) wheelies. right now if i try slow ones it goes side to side way to much.

If Im going for long rides I put the pressure back up, handles alot quicker with the right PSI

Im not ready for a Goldwing just yet.

Nice pictures man

Thats, one problem I have when I get a long wheelie going on the bike is the Wobble. I was wonderng if the rear shock is set too soft. It's scary, thats why I usually start out from a slow speed and shift up through the gears.

THE WEEBLE WOOBLES

I'm gonna mess wit my tire pressure a little and see if it makes difference.
