    Still Playing with the Wheelies

    Haven't been on the TW much since Green Ridge and decided to stay out of the woods, bow season around here. Still having good weather, so I did some more practicing today with the GoPro recording. 1st one I ran out of road, just over a 1/4 mile. 2nd wheelie I started back further, 1/2 mile long. Need to find a longer, rarely traveled, sparsely populated, level road.

    Never going to wear out the front tire at that rate.
    I am truly impressed.

    Never! Go over a little too far with a stoppie and you crash. Go too far over in a wheelie, a little rear brake saves the day. Wisdom comes with age.

    I wonder if the engine is starved for oil on such a long wheelie?

    I've wondered that myself. So far, no weird knocks or other noises.

    Good job on the wheelie....like a pro. Now we need to see what it looks like from a side angle as you pass by, get the SO to take a video of that.
