Hills and Wheelies

There are some roads by me with some nice little hills and if you pull up on the bars a little rite at the peak of the hill its cool cause the front end comes rite up. I'm talkin like 4th and 5th gear. Its pretty fun.

Theres another road by my house, its kinda out in the country, but it has a couple little dips and then the hills peak after the dips and if you hit that fucker at anything over 90 the front end floats on you and it feals awesome!

Anyone have any similar experiences?

Lately, evertime I see a hill I try and time it just rite and either pull in the clutch and let it out or pull up on the bars.

It's FUN!

I dunno about the 4th & 5th gear nonsense is all about. That sounds more like Vcook and Moto doing supercross on their gixxers last year. (I'm sure Chris will be posting the pics shortly)

All I know is I'm a lot more careful about small downhills these days. A few weeks ago I goosed a little powerwheelie (or so I thought) at the top of the hill. As soon as I started going down hill the front snapped up fast.

Throttle chop and slammed the front down on the flat bottom after the hill. Did I survive? Yes. Did I mash the boys up against the tank so hard I started to cry? Also yes.

Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

<--------------Patrick, can you see how nicely he sets the front end down?

There are a few roads like that around here. The county K-F-C loop anythingover 100 and the front end floats all the way down the backside of the hill. Sick feeling.
Down in NC last year on 28 I was playing TT weiner and cresting hills in 3rd on the Franken Chicken, lofting the front with throttle roll on at around 80.
Good times.

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

The slighting on the rider and bike also matches the photo and the suspension is extended apporiately for being off the ground... and the wheels are still moving.... it's real..unless it was done by a hollywood studio.

The piece of grass on the rear tire gives it away. It's still scary as $hit though. No more powerhweelies on downhills for me either. I don't know why it works, but the front just rips off the ground if I gas it going downhill.

yeah, next time we do those hills I'm gonna have to put the camera on the 9R. (taping up the speedo of course)

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
