|Bratva5||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.|

Might have to set up a nice drinking party and wheelies, seeing the bike doesn't move and you can't flip.

|BabyBoy1||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.|

|stilltopdawg33||just like a dyno i would guess. something spins under the tire.|

hmm...now if only i did this back in may before i fell..haha
looks like fun! how do they get the front end to pop up though without the whole bike moving forward??

|Streaker||I can ride good wheelies but I think I want that pic of me standing backwards on the seat or sitting backwards on the tank with the wheel in the air........|

|stilltopdawg33||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.|

|Streaker||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.|
|09-17-2006 10:02 PM|
|stilltopdawg33||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.|

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.
