    Wheelies Are For Kids!!

    ....and I'm just a big kid! Wanting to get the wheelies longer than my yard would allow, I ventured out to a back road for a little practice. That pavement rushing by looks just like the sanding belt in the woodshop. No guts, no glory. Pop it up in 2nd with a quick shift to 3rd. I can usually go from telephone pole to telephone pole or a little farther. Starting to get a little left to right control also. Having lots of fun scaring myself.

    I'm lucky to go that far on the rear wheel with out poopin' myself! 54 yrs. old, the reflexes have slowed a bit.
