    How often do you wheelie?

    Lately i find myself doing them all the time, on my commute, pretty much whenever i get a chance.... yes they are new to me, but i have to ask does it ever lose that going over the top of a rollercoaster feeling that i cant seem to get enough of?

    no. they are addicting. it's like a competition against yourself, how high you can get it and how long you can hold it. 6 point ticket, so "avoid" being pulled over

    Quite a lot. Still practicing power wheelies, but can get them up pretty high sometimes. I find if i think about it too much, they just end up really crappy - just gotta do it.
    If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.

    its weird how one day i was just riding and it just happened, i just did a wheelie without even trying and i was like holy shit i just wheelied im gonna do that again and again and again.. I think it was because i got a new rear tire and its super sticky compared to the old one that used to just spin

    love it

    No you can't get enough of them.
    I had two mediocre ones this morning (even the crappy ones are fun - just like sex!).

    Just got to mind the Po-po...

    a small child jumped into the street at a bus stop ahead of of me. perfect opportunity! -that mother nearly yanked the kids arm outta the socket pulling it back, it was awesome

    Only unintentionally. They eat rear tires.

    I'm just here for the intelligent conversation.
    on my old bike I did them all the time... ALLL the time. Now I never do them since I don't want to get the addiction back. It's weird too since this bike is such a hooligan machine.

    I try not to think about how fun they are.

    i got my tire from desser tire, ordered it online it came in a week, 100$ for a 200 50zr 17


    its remanufactured but they normally make aircraft tires, if its good enough for an f16 im sure it will be fine on my r1

    eat away

    im more worried about my front seals

    Damn 6 points...that sounds expensive. I wonder if the excuse, "I never knew my bike had the power to wheelie.." would work.
