Default Well, the bike finally "hooked"

Not sure if it was the warm pavement and cold ambient air or just plain luck. Got it to hook tonight and pulled a 1 O' Clock. I've had the tire up plenty of times, but tonight was scary and fun all the same.

She came down nice and light, but my buddy on his Harley, had the fear of God in his eyes. I am guessing when the turbo is on, this will be more common.

I'm assuming he means he wheelied and got the front tire up to 1:00, not quite vertical but close.

Pretty much.... road her out for about 200 feet and then began letting it down slowly.

I agree. And if it doesn't make any cents, it won't make any dollars either!

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Would a hospital bill suffice? Girl that claimed she was experienced came off the back when I did it again. Smacked her forehead on the street

See it is a lot more believable with a passenger. The problem is it just does not sound as cool.
I popped a wheelie at the track once. It scared the hell out me. It came up to about the 4:00 position and i rode it out about 15 feet.

I have been attempting to get a smooth wheelie. Just wasn't expecting it to come up that high. As I work on it, I will get video.
