St.Charles MO, St.Louis MO, and we got a guy from IL that comes down to ride with us.

What's the point of "riding" at night? Your damn sure not hittin corners. Gonna meet up and chit chat?

Last question, with a name like yours I gotta ask. You a "stunta" ?

I agree it's nice to relax and but it's damn boring. It's always jumping from spot to spot.

Most of the group I ride with only comes out on the weekends when everyone is off work and we can hit the back roads.

That's cause all I can do right now is a power up. Haven't tried the clutch up yet. I want to find a good parking lot to practice in.

Last time I did a wheelie was on the road we met you at the day the wind picked your bike up and it went down in your driveway.

yes that day did suck.

Mine used to do that stupid 1st to N instead of 2nd when I first got it. Now it doesn't want to shift from 5th to 6th. It's like I have to shift the lever higher.

I rarely do the power ups cause I'm told they are dangerous. I can see where they can be, but I've never had a problem YET...

I'd like to learn clutch ups...

EDIT : Brandon, let me know when your first Tuesday off is gonna be.

clutching it helps it come up faster and get it higher... try to on-off-on... it's been real smooth for me

Shut up, you know for a damn fact you do good clutch ups for starting out.

I've seen it. Wish I could do it. Like I said, I want to practice some day. We need to find a parking lot and play around some day.

I tried poppin it up around at 7k like you said you do it at and my bike didn't come up at all.

I can power wheelie all day long, but I wanna learn the YUH UHH skillz lol !!!

Just practice on the back roads. 7K was were I started doing the power ups. Clutch ups are lower rpms then I hit the throttle and drop the clutch.
You'll get it eventually. I prolly start the clutch up around 4-5K rpms. I think.

I think we need to have a weekend for YUT UHH!'s and practice clutch ups that way we don't fudge up on the street.

What do you turds say? Maybe Wheeliejunkie can show us a trick or two to the wheelie tricks.

EDIT: Like i said, I tried 7k and nothing happened, maybe I'm doing it wrong, we'll have to find a place to figure it out. I may have to do 10k

Don't worry about it. Let wheeliejunkie have fun with the wheelies that he does. I'm sure ill be envis of what he can do. I can't ride my wheelies out very good at all. But I'm always ready for some lessons. So wheeliejunkie teach away. I'm ready to learn.

We can try to figure out the "yut huh's"? this weekend or something.

Edit: the people that I work with think that it is stupid that I want to buy a mini cooper s. Effin them. Drive one before you effin doubt the car.

I'd love to ride on sunday but I have to work. I can do the sit downs. Never tired the stand ups yet. When doing a sit down I just ride it out till I hit peak rpms.

What type of riding do u normally do?
