stupid SV clutch cable

well my clutch cable broke at the stop light on irvine park and york. right as the light changed to green so i was giving it gas and had a nice unintentional wheelie for 5 feet.

special thanks to moparboyy for picking my ass up.

Never. I've ridden w/ Nick numerous times, and he is the MSF/ responsible rider poster boy. True story. I don't think he even knows how to wheelie.
