Stick to the subject, wheelies!

It’s nice to see by the first post above "But not on that wimpy Triumph ;)" that people on this site are not just Buell haters; they are equal opportunity brand haters. If it’s not the latest and fastest, I.E. Honda CBR 1000RR; Kawasaki ZX 10R; Suzuki GSXR 1000; Yamaha YZF R1 then they just have to put in some condescending comment or what they think is a joke.

It would be nice to see posts that stick to the subject, IE "Latest Code Wheelie School Schedule". If there were a comment on why a certain bike or brand is not as good to wheelie on, then that would be cool. But I am sick and tired of seeing the general brand bashing statements by people that have probably never owned the brand much less ridden one.

Let’s see some posts from people that have actually attended the course, are going to attend or have comments on wheelies.

Thank you!

Those block long, tail light scraping wheelies are just so last week. I'm saving my $495 for the Metzger school on back flipping a motorcycle. I'll be such a hit down at the local high school. VWW

Uh gbrummett I think that no knee's remark about the Triumph was just a joke. Everyone knows that MR ALLCAPS will only be seen on the latest and hipest rocket bike du jour. VWW

Re: Stick to the subject, wheelies!

While I admit that my humor is useually dull as a rusted knife, or subtle as a sledge hammer; I figured the obvious reference to MR ALLCAPS would have given a smidgen of a hint to the general population as to the tounge in cheek nature of the post.

I guess I was wrong, so I'll be spending my 495 US dinars on that comedy writing camp taught by Regis Philben. dang. I so wanted to do block long wheeliezz.

Re: High School Flipping Wheelies

...that reminds me of the time I tried to impress a bunch of classmates, who were in a drivers-ed car at the time (in front of Marshall high school), by doing a big wheelie on my F7 175 Kawasaki.

Needless to say, I looped the bike, and sent aluminum side-case pieces (rotary valve) zinging through the air, like some kind of frag grenade. One shard even landed on the hood of the drivers-ed car.

Ah, the memories.

Re: High School Flipping Wheelies

Memories are what brought about my post. I used to wind my 441 BSA out in first gear and then slam in into second. The result was that the old (then new) beezer would stand straight up on the back tire at the perfect balance point, allowing a looong wheelie in front of my peers standing in front of our high school. In hind sight I probably looked like the biggest idiot on the planet to any adult onlookers, especially when I would shatter one of the woefully fragile transmission shafts, and wind up pushing the bike to the parking lot.

The stupid things we do to impress chicks

Next time just buy yourself some armchaps and chrome knuckled gloves, polish up those toe sliders, spray some armor all on your knee pucks, and then go stand next to your bike with your helmet tucked rakishly beneath one arm, looking cool. Really it works just as good as wheelies! Try it!

Oh and you might wanna spring for a sneaky leaker in case a girl actually does come up to talk to you.

Simmer down, post nazi!

Just for that, I'm gonna tell you about how my Dance Dance Revolution pad broke, so now I'm getting flabby and bored.

Also, I hear they found *dun dun duuunnn* WMD's in that one country that all the kids are talking about.

Sorry...

Gee guys, I was just afraid this would break out into a bike smoke-a-thon that's all.

Just wanted to read some cool related posts that had nothing to do with politics, slaming other bikes, or bikers.

Pedal bikes are friggin hard to wheelie-they loop way easy. If you're not close to looping it, you have to pedal too hard to keep the front up. I've got hydraulic disc brakes on my mountain bike-I can stoppie the shyt out of it! (to much of a poosie to try it on a motorcycle)

Re: You're losing your touch.

I just can't believe how well he wrote that. I think he only missed one comma after 'Huh' in the first sentence. I usually have to skip reading his posts because the grammatical errors hurt my head! Either he's a 3rd year 4th grader or he falls on his head too much.
