Wheelie Machine - Syd

Discussion in 'Multimedia' at netrider.net.au started by ariderslife, Jul 17, 2012.

  1. I went up to syd for a holiday,



    Came across the wheelie machine.


    It actually helped me grasp the "concept of using the rear brake" to counteract the bike from flipping, pretty good fun man.




    I recorded the video to show my mates, but i thought id might as well make it public.

  4. yeah i will do the odd wheelie in my videos but most likely footage from proper locations. I won't be posting footage of me riding around the streets doing wheelies. cops will come knocking to the tune of say music :nopity:

  7. I'm hanging to get up to Sydney to have a crack on that thing. I normally go up for work fairly regularly, but, ever since I found out about that thing (a couple of months ago) I haven't been back up there yet (waaaahhhh).

  8. I wonder how much that costs?

    It looks kinda fun for retarded people who might never own a real bike

    Get out their and flick the clutch people , A bike bolted to a platform will teach you nothing

  9. - - Taught / trained my mind to learn to use the brake to stop myself from looping. So id say its money well spent.


    - yeah was a Husky 510 and 1 other gsxr 1000 + a Crf230 with a 12 bar. - i only rode the bike in this video.

    thats how i felt. i made a mission of it to travel from melb to syd, got time off work spent a few days exploring sydney and had a go on the wheelie machine.

  12. IIRC it is in Peakhurst (Near Hurstville) and t is something along the lines of $110 - $130.

    Google Maps says it is a 2hr 45min trip from Bathurst to Peakhurst.

  13. Get a real bike :) Motard for life haha! in all seriousness though dirt bikes are the best for wheelies :) I "cover" the back brake but never use it because of throttle control and just that my wr450f power wheelies in 3rd with 2/4 throttle :)

  14. nothing beats a fast 3rd gear corner pinning it and lifting the front while still taking the corner

    yeah motards are the wheelie machines

  16. nope bought a wr450f recently :) god dam, I cant imagine a 1000cc bike :-O

    man the 450 goes hard. in under 100 meters I can get up to 100KM/h before I need to brake :) and that's not a WOT, it's only at 2/4 throttle :-O

  17. Is that the same as 4/8 throttle? jk
     
     Top
  18. What I mean is I'm not even twisting the throttle all the way. I am only twisting it half way and it's so fun :)
     
     Top
  19. it's more like 5000000/10000000 throttle. :)
