I wonder does somebody of you R1 drivers perform any stunts? Wheelies !? With first to second gear wihout clutch.. Stunning stunts! I don't mean to be sarcastic but it's a shame that people buy R ones because of it's credibility, and are just learning to ride... :butt
I'd like to discuss like what's your fastest wheelie sitting and standing, same with passenger, highest shoeskiing speed and so on. Mine top speed wheelie on sitting is 225 km/h, should be better and skiiing with sandals was at 160 km/h with one hand (not very hard core, i know)...

There are many here that stunt their R1s. I do pretty much all of them,I am working on wheelies from a dead stop and riding them about 5mph. If you try this make sure youonly have about 15-20psi in your tires otherwise the bike walks back and forth and you will fall over(I know this,the hard way):hellobye :D

Wheelies- sit downs, stand ups. Flamingos, can-cans, rolling burnouts, doughnuts, stoppoes, etc. Practicing skitching but dont have it down yet.

I'm pretty tame. I do 3rd gear stand-ups, that's about it. I'd like to be able to wheelie for a mile or two starting out at 75mph. Still working on that though.

Wheelies.. I always like to ride em from about 20 mph in first, to about 120 in fourth... normally the road starts to corner :) ..and I cant wheelie round bends either :) ... I am working on standup wheelies.. but still dont feel comfortable...
Stoppies.. roll em from 60 mph at reasonable height..
to a standstill really high.. like nearly over!!
Dont get to practice burnouts.. I need the rubber to use to get to work and back! ... video soon ;) ...as soon as I find out best way to get video on my PC..

no too many stunters over here huh??
sitdowns 1st through 4th up to 130 mph. clutch/bounce
standups 2nd 3rd mile + change lanes around bends
stoppies from 70 mph..
binned the gix b4 i got to highchair wheelies/stoppies and standup combos like fneder grab flamingo and shit..
I have tried fender grab but could only grab the headlight :( . Any tips? Combos are cool, i've done flamingo, one hand and nac-nac at the same time.
Does anyone know how fast you can wheelie with 140 hp at backwheel? Have you done 4 and 5 gear to the max? Must try downhill next... :yesnod

We would be a good match, I just started doing the highchair this week. The best stoppies start at 100.
