i love power wheelies

So after riding 600s for the past 3-4 years, i never really got to have the full experience of power wheelies. once and a while the trackbike will pull the front wheel, but thats it. but now, with 996cc's under me, its nothing but wheel in the air everytime i crack the throttle off the light. it just picks up the front so easily and just sets it down o so nicely. damn i'm in love.








so how long till i get a ticket?

maintain your beeotch!

What's up Alex, congrats on the bike.
Don't forget to maintain it!

Did you get a vented clutch cover yet? If you have the stock cover, and in mint condition, keep it, don't drill holes in it!

Let me know if you haven't modified it yet.

What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.

Same thing for me with my GS500. I swear I just look at it wrong and the front comes up.

nothing like the feeling of the front end coming up just off of a corner

Operating a motorcycle. So easy, even a caveman can do it. Knowing how to ride? Priceless.

Road America nothin. It's only a matter of time before that thing becomes a dedicated track heap. I've seen you in the tight stuff; you fly in the corners, man. But right now, you're digging on how that thing torques outta corners like a MFer. It's not about weight, or HP, it's about foot pounds. You're glimpsing the light, starting to grasp the possibilities. Plus, there is just something so appealing about flying in the face of convention and going fast on a Duc. (Why do you think I'm so obsessed with the Monster?) One dollar says you end up riding it on the track. Don't fight it. Trust me, it's where it belongs...
