Some very fond memories from the old Bike Squad days ('84 - '85).  This was called a tail-tapper on a XR500RE. (Bit poor quality from the old 124 camera photos to be scanned in)



And then the ultimate challenge was to wheely with the rifle in the one hand.  A R1 worked better than a R4, not sure why?  Ride slowly in first, pick up with throttle and while going up to second and thereafter it was relatively straight foward.  It did not just happened but took lots of execise.



ATGATT was not so big in those days, a "staaldak" caused more damage seemed like a fond excuse!
