Which bike did you do it on?

I'd be more impressed if it is the Sprint or even the Breva.

I would be more impressed with those as well since if I did it with either of those they would have been stolen.

every wheelie i have pulled in the last year or more has been an accident and has cost me time and a position into turn one...I don't know what it is, but that flag dropping adds HP to my bike for the first 100 feet in a race, that is until the front wheel touches back down, then the HP goes away.

bullshit, traction is what i lose in the exits of turns. Especially turn 2 in katy, lost that 3 times last year, while only losing it once in turn 3 and once in turn 5.. .the other times i fell down, some one in front of me lost traction and I fell down trying to avoid them

Well, I was thinking of returning it. You never told me how powerful it was after the break-in period. As someone said pics or it did not happen.
