finally! my first wheelie

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by edgelett, Jul 23, 2007.

  1. ok it was more of a bunny hop but my boyfriend says it counts as a wheelie!

    Riding home, filter through to front of traffic at the lights & pull in front of the lead car. SO the driver doesn't like that there's now a bike in front of him & starts revving his engine. trying to intimidate me.

    Lights go green, I open up the Hornet & accelerate through to 10,000prm, then kick it into 2nd. however i ever happen to go over a small rise in the road at this exact point & end up feathering the clutch just a tiny bit.

    Front comes up only about 10cm off the ground, then touches down gently.

    not much of a wheelie but i was excited anyway!!!!

  2. Hooligan.
  3. terrorist.

  8. If your trying to guess how high the front wheel was on your first wheelie, i'd hate to say but your guess is way off but none the less, you did well. :)

  18. I feel sorry for you joel, Your bike wont even wheelie with a 52 teeth sprocket on the rear.
  19. yeah that's the problem isn't it? I didn't do it on purpose, and have no idea how to do it again!

    oh well, will have to head off to a closed road to practice practice practice!
