You're right, there is none. Think of the children Roy! What if some small child witnessed that from their minivan (assuming they tore themselves away from the in car TV ) and grow up to ride a motorcycle?

I had to drop something off at a church yesterday. Of course the church had a preschool. I rolled up on the Tiger and those kids came running toward the fence. I briefly contemplated a wheelie, but I'm just not good enough to wheelie at idle speed. I did add a little blip of the throttle though. I know, such a hooligan.

It shows the bigger ones on his site. the FZ would probably pull one of those but I need to stop as well But I may have to ride down and check on out. Would bet the hell out of sleeping on the ground.

And Anti. you are right, think of the kids. i can't ride the FZ to town with out seeing a kid in the back seat of a car and getting the pop a wheel motion from them. I didn't watch the video I don't need to, it's the same thing in every video of that nature. if people want to stunt ride if should be done the same way people that race do things. on a closed coarse. Never should it be done in a open city street. Popping a small wheelie is one thing but holding said wheelie for 30 yards or more is uncalled for.

and that's my rant for the day..

Plus at $3.65/gal for 89 octane, I can't afford to wheelie. I wonder if I'd fit on a Ninja 250 or a CBR250?

Yep!

I'm getting to know it too well though. Had the bodywork and tank off and on three times now with those damn Denali lights. Twisted Throttle is making good on them and giving me a refund after multiple attempts to fix the flickering issue. Last time I had the bike stripped down, lights removed and bodywork installed in 45 minutes.

I still don't know if it's a compatibility issue with the Tiger's electrical system or poor quality control with the lights . I know others have had some issues though...

Well all I got to say is I hope y'all influence a bunch a kids in th proper direction.me I don't have any rug rats (don't want any) to influence and to be honest most rug rats I see today could use some influence whether it be a good wheelie or a ass whooping.

switch they go a lot further than 30 yards. I have personally seen one go 5 miles at 70 mph on one wheel I like wheelies, gets my blood pumping. Sad thing is for me a shaft drive bike is the worst wheelie platform on the planet (S10 no good) but lucky for me I also have the best wheelie machine on the planet, GSXR1000 I like the street fighter approach so many are using today makes way more sense. Take a beat up pos sportbike and transform it into a wheelie machine, gearing, hand brake for rear brake, wide bars, crash cage, no fairing, thats good stuff. My old DRZ400SM was the wheelie king and I could not even swing a leg over it without doing a wheelie.

Wheelies can go wrong, I have a TI plate and 8 screws in my left arm as proof that a GSXR750 will throw you off. But that has not stopped me its and addiction similar to using drugs or alcohol. I try to wheelie anything I get on first thing off the bat.

Switch he can most likely get you what ever you want he is a dealer on them. He was working a sale on one saturday when I stopped in to chat with him. Terry's good people.

My Denali's have been rock solid and flawless. That Yamaha is throwing some serious wattage off the alternator though, around 600.

Wow, that sucks you've had to remove all that stuff so many times. I dunno either; you couldn't fill up a thimble with my electrical knowledge and I don't think I ever did any electrical work other than get power to the gps.

At least Twisted Throttle is taking care of it for you.

I have to agree a good wheelie does get the hart pumping, And Like you I've seen them carry a wheelie for miles. And the guys that make a street fighter and use it in a blocked off parking lot for stunt shows, I like those guys , they have turned stunt rideing into a sport. What bugs me is the ones that do it on the road. I can't support something that keeps giving bikes a bad image, so much so that it has caused insurance compinys to black list a bike just because it looks like one these guys are riding. I look at rideing bikes from a racer vew, and more so from a dirtbike racer view. You need to know how to pull a controlled wheelie but riding one for a long time has no performance value.

And on the camper noat. I won't be getting on this year but maybe next year now that I just payed off 5 bills I've been paying on for the last 3 years. I'm now down to my house one car, one credit card that got ran up when me and my wife where both out of work for a few months, and a lawyer bill. I hope to make a dent in those this year. But that give me a year to research and save and plain. and and and...
