I am not sure what you are shooting for, but in 4 short posts you have proven yourself to be little more than an ass and a shit starter.

If you really think your hot shit cause you can wheelie better than someone else you have problems. It's just a ****ing wheelie, who give's a rat's ass.

I'd much rather ride with people out to have a good time and not look down on anyone that have only moderate skills than ride with a great rider with a huge ego looking to make everyone else feel inferior.

Nice pic of GUS BTW. GUS is a pimp.

Shouldn't be hard to talk a friend in to shooting a picture of you. And Jay by the look of the smileys I think its all in good fun no shit starting intended. And if I'm wrong Earl can just go wheelie right past his ass.

Jay, obviously you're missing the joke here. I sure didn't intend to belittle anyone, simply was giving him a hard time for the 3 pics he had attached to his sig while involving himself in this thread. I really don't believe I said anything about me being better than him at wheelies or anything else for that matter. It's a forum, have a little fun, or let us. Don't be a dick. As for the comment about the people you ride with, ha.. Good luck in Okc. Camaraderie amongst riders in this city is a thing of the past. I've never met so many egos in my life before the last 4 years..

I wanna be able to do a 12:00, but um....I......er........suck
Youse funny....

Jay, I have tried to call my insurance agent. he won't talk to me anymore. Too many damn claims already for trying get my watch fixed! I knew I should have been a jeweler instead of a rider.

I can't wheelie for sheite. I can get it up for a hot sec on in 1st and don't have the balls to try in 2nd at 80 mph.

Can you do the bounce method sitting down or is it only for stand-ups?

I need to find somebody with an 02 around here to show me how it is done....

Wasn't trying to be a dick. I am sorry. I though you were trying to start shit with someone. You just never know with the internet. I like Earl he's cool, even if he likes sheep, and I was just watching his back...lmao

As far as people to ride with. You should come on one of our SPEED-TRIBE rides. We meet the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month at 11:00 am at the Bricktown Varsity. Just a bunch of guys that like to ride. For the most part all great guys and gals to know. We have alot of fun.

There are alot of good people to ride with in OKC, but alot of carzies and moron's as well. I'll ride with pretty much any one though, as I am still learning to ride

Next ride is July the 7th. Hope you can make it brother. Tell GUS to bring his ass out there as well. It's always more fun with GUS...lol

He let's YOU ride his bike??? WTF was he thinking?


My buddy in Abilene wrecked his '99 F4 right in front of me while in my Rodeo last month. He came down off a stand-up into a tank slapper he couldn't recover from. I had a F2 for like 5 years, man what a stable bike. Never would have thought he would have went down the way he did. Must of not had his wheel straight or something.

How was the ride from OK City to Dallas BTW?

What is it that you have against SPEED-TRIBE? I don't remember seeing a double X at any of our rides. All the people that ride with us have a great time. However I have talked to several people that have not ridden with us and they had negative things to say about us. No biggie, you cannot please eveyone. To each his own as it were. I wish you well ZERO XX. You are always welcome to ride with us. Who know's you might have a good time

I work at Performance cycles on 39th from 10 am until 2 pm every day. Stop by sometime if you get bored. We can BS about bikes and maybe you will see the SPEED-TRIBE guys ain't that bad

We had fun in Dallas brother. The freaking IRL cars were the shit!! Man those cars were hauling ass.

We went to Wataburger Saturday night and rode with a few guys. they were riding crazy. Cutting in and out of cars for no reason. They were scaring me...lmao We hope to go back down again and see if we have better luck. It was fun either way.

My roomate is cool, I let him ride my bike before he got his. I don't do anything crazy on his bike. It is so much easier to balance it's amazing. Night and day to my R1.

I went to the stunt deal last Saturday and managed to do a tank wheelie all the way down the 1/4 I was stoked. I wanna try to get it posted here on this site so ya'll can see I'm not full of it

Question first timer

hey guys need some help, been about 7 months since last ride due to briken back from snow boarding. but was just starting the wheelie thing before my accident. i have a 2001 r1 stock gearing, thinking about raising 2 teeth in rear to help pull the wheel easier but whats the best method and gear to start? load suspension and throttle or clutch at certain speed. need major help, can't afford another broken back or a damaged bike. don't have 5k to rebuild if i bail ? help

DRIVE FAST ALWAYS WITH NITROUS, RIDE FASTER. WORDS TO LIVE BY!

Jim2001r1... just stay stock, start slow in first gear. Cover the rear brake, and then try to bring it up, even for .001 seconds (i.e. pop the throttle lightly around 5,500rpm). Do that 20-30 times.. then try to apply less of a "popping" pressure to the throttle, and more of a slow twist (like you were accellerating hard). The bike will then come up for .3 or .5 seconds before you snap the throttle shut and she slams back down again. Do that 20-30 times, and try to work on not closing it all the way when you freak because the bike feels like it's pointed towards the sun.. but rather closing it "somewhat".. eventually the amount you closeit will be just enough to hold the biek at a given height as it accellerates. the less you close it, the higher the bike.

remember, cover the rear brake, start slow, and wear proper gear.

Hi guys, I have to admit that I don't know anything about wheelies.
I tried many times,...but it always gets up for a second, then I freek-out and let the throttle...

Now, I would be more than pleased, if someone could tell me how to start learning wheelies....
I read this thred through, but I still don't get it.
What is this clutching and bouncing up the wheelie????

Please, someone explain to me (in steps):
1. how to practice and finally make ''safe'' wheelie;

2. which gear/what RPMs (what speed) for a start and after some wheelies..../how to handle the throttle ???

3. how to make a ''soft landing'' (to make it easier for front forks and for me - sometimes it feels like the font wheel shakes to much when it touches the ground)


THANKS ....

Joe Rocket R-1 wrote this as a response to wheelie questions awhile back....


Before I explain the clutch up, I want to begin by saying, "Warm up your tires'

Trying to do clutch ups with the tires cold will just end up with the rear tires spinning. At least it does for me. Maybe I'm too fat..

Anyways, in second gear around 35-50 MPH. I find around 40-45 to be best for me, queeze the clutch in while reving the engine. While the engine is revin high, let go of the clutch. It's a timing thing. You should feel the front end come up. If you don't, you didn't give enough revs or let out the clutch too slow.

But take it eazy when learning. It's much better to not the front tire up vs flipping the bike.

In less than a week, you will be pulling them up at will.
