Well seeing that all you ladies can seem to talk about is sex, sex, sex ,sex..................................... :joke :twofinger

I see that most of you ladies enjoy the track, or just riding the streets.

I was wondering how many of you ladies can get the front wheel up? Any of you ladies ever done a long distance wheelie? My lil lady once rode a wheelie on her Ninja 500, but is was kinda by accident.

Won't even try on the 6....But I'm on one wheel at the start of every race on my YZ80! :lol
Once I can do that without panic ensueing, I'll try the 6-but not until!

I figured out how to do them by accident, wound out first stuffed it into 2nd and up she came. I did it 2 more times by accident and figured I'd try to do it on purpose (which probably was a stupid idea) well of course it worked. I found the balance point and stayed there for what felt like awhile but probably wasn't that long. It scared the sh*t out of me so I brought it down and have made sure not to get it up again. I like having two wheeles on the ground and going through twisties more then I do stunting but that's just me.

that's something I used to do when I was a squid. My 98' 900RR was GREAT for um. The 96' is pretty good for um. With 15/45,(could take a few more in the rear)<<~~ no pun intended!!, she'll pull up easily.

I can do them now, but I chose not to. I realized that the older I get, the more pain hurts! :lol so, I try to avoid pain as much as possible. Ya never know when your gonna be catwalking it down I-65 and 12 o'clock it.. mmmmmmmmmmmm OWWWWWWWW!!

I was reading a thread about wheelies the other day... don't think my 250 is good for trying that, is it?
I was messing around riding some short wheelies on my buddy's 250 the other day. I don't ever ride wheelies but he told me he didn't think it could be done on his 250 so I showed him. It is really easy because that thing is so light.

i have on the R1, it is an awesome bike for it. usually when I do, it is totally by accident and not on purpose, but I'm -1/+2, so it gets light really easily...just the way she likes it. too bad I don't like it as much :), I'm working on it though.

I used to pop them for a few seconds about 1 to 2 feet high ones on the two fiddy.

Brought up the R6 first 5 minutes of riding it last year but at least it didn't scare me since I knew what they felt like on a bike.

It's not my thing to even try on the R6---I don't need to worry about replacing fork seals :) I prefer to wear my bike out and tires at the track or on Sunday rides through back country roads!! :)

<-------chicken

I dont think your a chicken at all, I'd post up a pic of my friends ankle after he recked doing wheelie last year but most peoples stomachs can't handle it. Lets just put it this way, I can now set three fingers inside his foot/ankle b/c there is only 30% of it left. I think I'll stick to curvey roads :D

I've got a FZ6, and the temp tags are still on it. Yes, I really WANT to try, but I'm terrified that I'll lose the balance point and lay her down.

And She Is Precious To Me. Moreover, My front forks *arent* adjustable, and they're *soft*. I have a real fear of hurting the front end.

The bf has a beat up sv650, though....might take his out for a few practice runs before I go and do anything to the $7k investment.

I am right there with you. Working on the nerve and throttle control a little. I weigh so little it comes up pretty easy, I have to work at keeping the front tire down.

:D

i just got back from working on them...i think i got it up like 2 feet a couple of times (acutally trying to)...i need to practice more. all the guys I ride w/gun it at the lights so subsequently, they pop wheelies...i just use the torque to keep up, it would be nice to actually do one and show them a girl can do it too...
