    Doing a wheelie on a motorcycle.

    How many of you can do a wheelie on your motorcycle? Is this something sport motorcycle riders only do?

    Springer front end is too heavy to do wheelie. If that is what you want yo do then go for it. Just watch them sudden stops.

    On my Ultra, it is always the CB antenna, must be the counter steering.

    I have a friend that replaced the stock motor on his Ultra with a larger S&S motor. The guy can get the front end off the ground.
    The last wheelies I did were on my Hodaka.

    I got an itty bitty wheelie out of the vrod today. Was doing about 70 and dropped it into 3rd rolled the throttle and popped the clutch just to see what would happen. IT WAS ONLY AN ITTY BITTY WHEELIE... MAYBE 9 INCHES OFF THE GROUND.

    Does that count?
    Never twist the throttle with your ego

    So if I lean to the left, I will go to the right. Or is that If I hit the brake the gears will change. Or does the CB change the radio stations? Damn, I am so confused. No wonder I keep falling down.
