Dang, he has got talent. I know freeway wheelies aren't as accepted as the use to be but dang they are radical and the coolest thing ever to watch. He has good brake control which I never learned. I do it with all throttle so I constantly etch up in speed during my wheelies fastest one yet around 140mph on the freeway. But I kindof mellowed on that since I ridethe track because cops just don't like em and those cuffs hurt.

FLAMMER! nobody that does 140MPH WHEELIES WOULD REMOTLEY THINK THAT IS KEWL. 140MPH, that is barley possible. You would be considered 3X as kewl if you could prove you could do it!
140 and hold that speed. why do it at 140 what you can do at 60-90mph

Well maybe I should reclarify when I set it down it said 140. I pulled it up 2nd and shifted to third during the wheelie(sit down) and put it down at 140(I don't look at the speed much when I am up paying attention to the wheelie you know). And I can't hold the speed like I said I am constantly going a little faster I just bounce to the balance point and then keep accelerating. Anyway that is why I got to 140 instead of doing them at 60 or 90. I start the wheelie around 50mph or so.

The fastest stand up wheelie I have done is probably around 120 maybe a little faster. How to prove it? Hmmm I guess I could have Doug(lives in Corpus too and goes to msr houston with me alot) ride beside at that speed to show you I wasn't bs'ing. But then you would have to take his word.

So do you still need proof or do you take my word for it? I could probably do a faster wheelie but one time I put it down a little cocked and went into a tank slapper those aren't fun at 130 or so. I have since got an ohlins damper to help save my life next time.

oh Ok. I know what you are saying there is a bunch of people on the net that bs. But a few people know me here from Msr Houston. I think they will vouch that I can wheelie. I wish I was faster on the track but wheelies are no problem for me got lots of pratice in Corpus Christi they are the only thing to do besides go straight.
