Respek, as dit nie gephotoshop is nie..
Daai voorwiel is bitter hoog, op balance point en neem aan jou regtervoet al besig met die agterrem, anders het jy probleme.......

Nice pic. :thumleft:

Respect to the man.. I don't believe Photoshop.. I see that regularly on my Adventure..
Very sweet spot up there and on perfect balance.. Nice constant throttle, no rowing or blipping and it all goes gentle and smooth.. Well done Pofmuisie... Time to change your handle to wheelie something...  ;D

That pic of the RM brings back lots of memories.
I had a PE 250 for many years.

Yeah... Sometimes we overdo it a bit.. But gain confidence with hanging over backwards at one speed and you will be in good control..
DON'T BLIP THAT THROTTLE!!!! Just gently keep it where you need it... When you think you are going to donner over backwards, you are very far from it actually... So as long as you are in control, just bring it back with slight throttle movement... And standing, you can move your body weight...

 :thumleft:  it was the hottest piece of enduro equipment you could buy, even had Uni-Track suspension! Lots of guys in the mid 80's still had bikes with twin shocks.

I don't know if this qualifies for this thread as a "Slide" but this is me after dumping it trying to cross a mud river I think in the late nineties and then struggling to get out of the mud.There was a story behind this shot but that's for another post.

Getting the hang of things after a 30 year layoff


Legendary little scoot, that IT...

Some amazing pics on this thread... The boys on the army bikes.. Man!!! Does that bring back memories!! Remember chatting briefly to a young guy on an XR 200, who was just messing about on an adjacent field at that fees in Pretoria, in the mid eighties.. He simply redirected the hoisted little bike in my direction when I called him and proceeded to chat to me while wheelying slow, gentle circles around myself and my then girlfriend..

I am a little boy when it comes to this stuff, I am afraid..  ;D
If it was in 87 or 88 that would have been either myself or Heath on the 200 >:D

Having a bit of fun in the highlands, the LC looks so cool when it wheelies

I have the sequence as well, not sure if I should post that?
