This is good advice. Riding 50's will teach you how to use the rear brake and save your skin.. I like to tell people if they cant do a u turn on a neighbourhood street standing up on their pegs then don't try a high speed wheelie yet lol. Personally I would learn clutching up 1st gears on a stock gsxr6 before I tried any 2nd gear stuff. U will need at least 45-55mph to start playing in 2nd gear on 16/43 sprockets. That means you would be setting it down around 90-100mph(too fast if you want to keep your skin and don't find the rear brake).

He's referring to the three mode performance settings that the Suzuki 1000 has - with what's akin to low, medium and full power delivery - though it's not the same as 600, 750 and 1000 cc levels, he's mistaken.

Ok. That makes better sense. Kinda threw me off the way he said it. I've heard some dumb over the years but that was a new 1.

I thought he was just a squid and was saying whatever he thought would impress the people he was talking to.
That's why I referred to PP1. Posers bragging on their will say so sorts of stupid stuff.

Oh I know they will. Heard lots of b4. I don't know what PP1 is. But dude still threw me off with what he said. I know the new bikes have LOTS of technology. He coulda said that. But I like how they called him out in the end

Poser Point 1. I believe it's Starbucks by the galleria. Lots of squids gather there and pose on their bikes.

Yes, it's the Starbucks on Post Oak @ Westheimer. MH members have been known to meet there early Saturday and or Sunday morning to get out of Houston

Are you sure your bikes in 1000cc mode? Sometimes 600cc mode is more difficult.. Seriously tho it just comes down to seat time practicing. Don't need any sprockets or steering stabilizers or fancy race tires lol, when my buddy had a bone stock k7 600 I could bounce up(no clutch)in 3rd around 90mph.

As long as it's not a shaft driven bike, you can wheelie it. Shaft'ies can't wheelie.

let the games begin again. Lol

I can offer mine up for practice. we can find a field or lot and you can go to town. I know its not the same as the gsxr but if you want to get back used to the feeling of clutching up or power-ups in 1-3 (she's a beast lol) aignt no thang.

just hit me up when you got a day off. most likely I be free.
