Traction control cuts the power as soon as I try get the front wheel up. And I'm too sh1t-scared to turn it off  :ricky:

Kan jy wheelie, CharlesS? - Jy sal my maar moet nooi om by jou in Limpopo te kom kuier dan sal ek jou wys :)



Charles, baie mooi versameling daar in jou garage! Moet net nie vir my vertel jy is soos die paar Superbikers met al die "race" gimmicks op hul bikes, maar hul tyres is net in die middel afgeloop nie Dankie, maar die oudste twee moet een van die dae plek maak, my vrou dreig om my te skei as haar kar weer buite moet slaap. Maar die bande loop darem op die kante ook af.

Hoeveel mense is in die afgelope jaar deur wheelying bikes beseer? Buiten ek self wat my stuitjie gebreek het? Maar ek sien jou punt 2strokeDan.



Impressive collection daai ou maat!  Die beste uit die oranje stal.

Ek is wel 'n baie groot KTM fan, my post oor die KTM ding is sommer net stir, niks leliks bedoel nie.

Ek het maar net gesinspeel op die T-shirts wat deesdae te koop is:  "Dis 'n Toyota ding, jy sallie verstaan nie".

My KTM geskiedenis (tussen my en my kids) 950, 950, 990S, 250, 300, 300, 300,  en 2014 350 oppad.   So my bloed is maar erg oranje.....


Ek hoor jou Uitjie as daai gogga eers is jou bloed is dan suffer jy maar......

Ek betwyfel dit BAIE sterk of ons een van Charles af gaan kry. hahahahaha laughing4

Gewoonlik is die manne wat moan die wat dit nie regtig kan doen nie, en nog meer telke male al probeer het en baie verstreurd raak met hulle self en dan sulke post's op die forum plaas.


Ek is Desember in die Wes Kaap, ek sal jou wys as jy die foto's neem en die snoek sal braai  :)

Menere soos wat ek gese het ek het geen probleem hoegenaamd met wheelies nie, moet dit bloot net nie doen in verkeer waar as iets verkeerd gaan jy ander mense ernstig beseer nie. Die wat weet hoe lyk William Nicol Weg sal verstaan dat in spitsverkeer jy basies sit met 'n parkeer area, en cagers en taxi's wat squat voel vir iemand op 'n bike. Om onder sulke omstandighede te wheelie is om te soek vir k@k, en as jy die wheelie net vir daai een keer verloor is dit jy en  onskuldige mense wat seer kry, maar dis jy wat met jou gad in die tronk gaan sit.  (roekelose en nalatige bestuur)

Of jy kan wheelie het niks met die debat uit te waai nie, dit gaan oor te veel kere wat ons lees van 'n biker wat dood is, en na die tyd vind mens uit hy het gedink hy kan..........(sit maar self in wheelie / stoppie / wat ook al ) maar toe nie kon nie.

Ek sou dalk anders hieroor gevoel hat as ek nie 2 maande terug by 'n begrafnis was waar die persoon gedink het hy kan bike ry en toe nie werklik kon nie.


Charles, jy is baie welkom vir n snoekbraai wanneer jy hier in die kaap is.  :thumleft: Laat weet, dan maak ons n plan met n paar van die manne hier vir n lekker.
Jy is heeltemal reg met betrekking tot ander mense se veiligheid. Dit moet altyd eerste gestel word, alvorens wie ookal n bietjie wil "show boat". Ons almal laaik dit, solank dit net oordeelkundig gedoen word. :thumleft:

Yes  I know this isn't on the road, but ....
This is my husband at the age of 14 .....  and me 20 years later ... learning to wheelie at the exact same place.

Ok, so I can't wheelie quite as high as he does, but at least I'm trying and one day ..... 

I love the feeling when we together on the KTM 950 and he lifts the front wheel.  As one gent mentioned, I have this silly grin on my face from the time I get onto a bike...

2StrokeDan, that day was one of the best days ever.  Other than the morning I spent riding up and down through the river getting soaked.

Ok, just trying to see if the story I heard is true, but apparently, someone had a rather bad prang in traffic while wheeling this last weekend... the question asked was that it's someone from this thread...

Now, I don't want to start something that has no foundation in fact, but firstly, if true, is the rider ok and anyone else ok?  and was it someone from the WD's... maybe even this thread?
