Thumbs up Squid here

Hey all!! Just a simple intro, no I'm not some crazy 610 loop guy (u know who u are that try to do it in 12 min), but would like to learn to ride some wheeliez and find some around 59 & 610 galleria area to ride with. All the videos and reading I can find for SV650s a wheelies are in 1st and 2nd, but I heard a guy called superdave that can ride them on the hwy. Guess I just need to ride more/practice to even try in 1st or 2nd

U thought that Squid calling was just for the jar heads to call us Squids, we called eachother that too and all branches called us that as we called them things too, like Chairforce, airfarts (airforce), etc...

THANKS TOO ALL FOR THE WELCOMES and good luck tiatool with ur 10 min 610 lap times up there
