  1. Hey everyone. Just like to gloat/complain at my lack of skill/good reaction time to the amount of times i have lifted the front wheel with a poke of accell. unintentionally on my new bike. A few times in the exact same spot as i pep it up the hill from work - landed once with the front axle slightly askew and whalloped my nuts. Luckily every time Ive learnt to keep on partial throttle atleast.
    Ill get used to it - take care out there all fresh full license folk !
