in other words you need to have a sexless life to be able to wheelie .  >:D

thanks buddy…

thats what friends are for… song playing in the background as i type this

real pleasure Bud, anytime.

 ;) :lol8:

While talking to SA's wheelie king of the time, in the late eighties, He told me that he 1, Earned more money than the state president and 2, Didn't realise that there were so many young willing and obliging female candidates for the said deed around.
So Sexless..? I dunno. After all, I met one of my early eighties girlfriends through a showoff display back then... Hmmmm.... Will not go into the results of three kilo wheelies with her on the back..  >:D

And sadly when men brag aboud it they are 'the man' but the poor willing girls are just 'sluts' ???

Anyway....nice to do controlled wheelies :)

The man..? Yeah maybe. Probably depends on the audience. In the 30 years I have been "showing off" I have had responses varying from "One day you are going to kill yourself." "You are an idiot." "You are mad." to "Fark Bru! I wish I could do that."

I guess the same applies to the slut response. I just see it as girls having fun. It's normally those who are afraid to live a little who resort to the "slut" branding...

Either way, I have always believed that everyone is entitled to their opinion. Just don't force me to live life the way you choose for me.

And tell me that a well performed, well controlled balance wheelie doesn't look good.. The sight of them motivated me to learn back then...

Jou waaghalsige ding! Ek ry al oor die veertig jaar en het nog nooit die guts gehad vir sulke wheelies nie.
Baie respek vir iemand wat dit kan doen.  :thumleft:

Dankie Flatout. Reel nr 1 - leer om die agterbriek te gebruik sonder om daaraan te dink. Vertrou hom en hy sal jou red. Daarsonder SAL jy "flip" op een of ander tyd.

Hi Fenderbender. Die meeste wheelies is met die 500 RE wat die RFVC enjin gehad het met die twee carbs.. Die lasste een met die fenderbender is die 500 R, die model of twee voor die RE. Deesdae dink almal n' "fender bender"" is n' bumper bashing in spitsverkeer met jou kar.

Respect bud..

WD's definitely now has a wheelie king.. I was hoping someone who can so this would appear sooner or later. Awesome stuff...

I hope to get there before my next birthday.. Yes, 51.. But I wil do it.. And as you say, once you use the rear brake without thinking about it, it will always rescue you..

You can never post enough pics here of your displys of balance.. I am sure there are many..
