Riding to work this morning, I pull up at a set of lights on North Tce in peak hour traffic. for those who don't know, North Tce is one of the main roads through the middle of the city. Anyway some lady had just cut me off so I was a bit annoyed. And as you do when you're annoyed, I took off from the lights & gave the bike a LOT of beans. A severe twist of the wrist. I feel all the weight leave the front & head to the back (as you'd expect with acceleration, normal weight transfer). Then i pull the clutch in to change to 2nd gear. At that point I feel the 'thud' of the front tyre hit the ground, and the bike gives me a little wobble'. I momentarily crap myself as I think I'm about to lose the bike, but it stabalises after one wobble. Thats when the grin started - I realised that the wobble was caused by the front wheel coming down...meaning it had been UP!! WOOT! I just popped my first ever power wheelie on my bike! It was up for approx 3 seconds at a guess, sounds short but try counting it in your head. I have always been afraid to TRY to wheelie cause I've been worried I'd crash my beautiful motorcyle. And here I am, pulling wheelies without even trying, in peak hour, on a main rd, on the way to work in the morning Now I know I posted a previous thread ages ago saying i did a 'bunny hop', but that doesnt count cause it was done by hitting a bump in the road. Wheelies kick arse!
