Do you wheelie when you see another guy riding? I'm only asking cause the last couple times i went out riding(including today) i passed by another rider only to have him bust a big wheelie.

il bust a wheelie no matter what ,even a slight glance by a pedestrian ,or a bike 20 miles away ,or even if i just assume there is a bike even on a city street .Ive been known to bust the best one if a girl or better yet a bunch of girls on a street .Its lame i realize ,but i also look in building windows at myself riding by .

ah well i have no shame and make no excuses . Its even better when i know it pisses people off and they give a shit if i wheelie or not .

school buses or a gaggle of kids on a field trip are the best target .

+1 for same lame tag

Ya...I wheelie everywhere....rear wheel....front wheel......so often i know it costs 6 points for undue care...but i still do it....why??? cause it's FUN!!!!! and I can!!!

Another trick I have been practicing that freeks the shit out of people...works best on a road with a bit of dust or gravel or wet....throw the bike into a soft slide into the curb and use the curb for a berm....guys i ride with think i am gona eat it...but i just bounce off and stand it back up...motards...try it

Pff, forget wheeling. Everyone knows everyone is more impressed with high speed fly-by's. That's what I do anyways, down shift and no matter what's infront of me, I full throttle it through all 6 gears. Doesn't matter where or what the amount of traffic there is. :p

Yeah fly=by's are crazy. I was doing 140km/hr and another bike just whips by me (200km/hr??). It was scary, I was like wtf was that.

still can't wheelie... let me correct myself, still never tried to wheelie. I'd rather get my skills first then worry about that sort of thing later. Next spring though I am going a few teeth up on the back and one down on the front, I'll be on my back tire in no time.... So to make this post relevent, yes I will wheelie if I see another bike/girl/girls/bus/car/cop.. wait, no cop.

Why don't you learn how to wheelie on stock gearing. your bike has more then enough power as is. going up that many teeth is for slow speed stunting stuff. if you really need all that to wheelie you might as well just give up now.

Any idiot can point the bike in a straight line and gun it, it takes skill and talent to wheelie. But then again judging by your strips, your not much for corner speed eather. Loser.

I can't get the bike to power wheelie, I've tried that a couple times just never clutched it up. I figured I was just not doing it right but my buddy couldn't get it up either, and he used to have the same bike as me and could get it up. I think the clutch might be slipping, but that is a different thread. Main reason for wanting to go up a few teeth is for the quicker acceleration, I don't need to be able to hit 250 or 260, no point to me.
