Well that was fun...

In exchange for a moto-wave on NE 82nd this afternoon, I was given a wheelie

Heh. One day I was at a 4 way stop, kicked into neutral for a second because I needed both hands for something. A another bike comes to the stop to my left and I start tapping on the shifter and, as sometimes happens, it doesn't want to go in without a bit of blipping. After a few moments the other guy rears up from a dead stop and roars across under my nose in a full wheelie. It was like a moto-mike-drop.

you know, on a tangent, I actually think stuff like this gets more young people into motorcycles than does a taiwanese Harley. It sure looks a lot more fun.

If it wasn't a felony here in WA, I'd actually try to "get it up". :P

felony? that's funny because these guys have more control over their vehicle when its on one wheel than most people do over their bigass cars and trucks and trailers do even under the best circumstances.

you know what im saying?

What's a wheelie?

Seriously, I have zero clue, zero skill, and zero need to raise the weight forwarded front end of a RC51 RVT1000R
