Wheelie Machine.....

Speed Limit Cycle in Harvey, IL is going to have a wheelie machine on September 23rd. Learn to wheelie or just do tricks if you already can. No way to get hurt or fall, bike has rope hooked to front end so you can flip backwarks, all on the likes of a samll trailer.

They are located on the Northwest corner of 159th and Kedzie Ave. just east of I-57 on 159th. Check it out if you want.

I was thinking of going to that. I wonder how long u get to try it before waiting again. Do you use your own bike or do they have one set up? It looks like they could set up any bike on there. Kewl but it would take forever to switch bikes, etc. Hopefully its just one bike all day.

They are just going to put a 954 on it and keep that one on unless it blows up or something. I'm sure your going to be waiting for a ride. I think they are starting it right when they open (10ish?? I think??). Now if they just so happen to be charging each person, you might be able to jump right on it.

I'm gonna try it. Maybe learning what happens when u pop it without the fear of balling up ur bike will teach me something. I dont want to become a super stunter but I would like to be able to run a good strong wheelie every now and then.

Yea I seen that show. It's pretty cool way to screw around.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

I spoke with this guy on Saturday. For 100 bucks you can have the machine at your house using your bike. This Saturday you can only use their bike on the machine.

The rear tire is on a drum that spins but it has enough friction so you can clutch it or use power to get it up. Just like the street but not moving.

They didn't tell me that. They said they have been trying to get this guy and his trailer over there for months now. I was thinking it was a big expense and heavy duty scheduling ahead of time?? Might have to set up a nice drinking party and wheelies, seeing the bike doesn't move and you can't flip.

I wanted to, but I got stuck in Atlanta, thanks to the great O'Hare management. I think lately these f*ckers have been closing the airport when it's drizzling outside.
