this is the famous "pick-up cream shot" by Atomlowe, it was first done by Teresa last weekend and I spent a good hour on it but still can't do it.

we didn't. He told us he did a tiny wheelie while we took a small break. He said want to boost it a bit more so off he goes for another run. on his 2nd run after the break, I just happen to have the vid cam shooting him and caught everything on tape :D

Wow... you pay detail attention to the video. Need to ask him for that, but it seems like it.

Holy $h!t man that was a close one on that R6 I bet you filled your pants after that one ay man. Pretty impresive hight though, not too far away from the balance point. By the way was that clutch or just a power wheelie ?

he's probably still feeling the after effects :)

damn 1st gear power wheelies are dangerous, they come up fast at the half-way point.... i'm gonna start working on my 2nd gear power wheelies, cause I run out of rpms really fast on the 1st gear ones.... but to be honest, wheelies are losing there value to me now, 600s aren't the best for wheeling, power is too unpredictable, and you really have to ring the damn thing to get it to come up.... makes me wish I had the 1000, nice and smooth and slow power wheelies at 100+ mph in 3 and 4 gear :) thats what I really want to do....

I think stoppies are what you should be trying next CG. They may actually be a little benefitial as sort of a threshold or emergency braking type exercise. ;)

stoppies, nah, I would rather flip over backwards than flip over forwards :) :) I think stoppies do more damage, lots of weight on those front forks, and comes down hard on the rear shock....
