    Can YOU do a wheelie in ANY gear? If not, you and the bike may be mismatched! :D

    Well, if you are going to do it, you should take it to Blue Ridge then across Hwy 60 to Dahlonega, then back and up to Blairsville, then Hwy 76 to Clayton, and they Dillard, Sky Valley, Highlands, then down to the river and back to Clayton on Warmoman Rd and then that the easy way home from Clayton.

    When I was still working I was cruising along on the 58 west coming up to the 58/99 interchange when a guy passed me on a crotch rocket doing about a 100mph riding on the back wheel. I don't mean doing a wheelie, he was standing up on the foot pegs just riding down the road at a hell of a clip. I watched him ride like that all the way to 58/99 intersection where he put it down to head north on the 99.

    Nice bike. In the second picture it appears to have a speedway bike type stance.
    My brother had one. Scary fast.
    Scary handling and braking too.

    A good rider is equally interested in the skills of other drivers. Be safe and have a blast! That's an awesome looking bike. Maybe you will meet a new friend.....

    If I had something that nice I'd take better care of it than that. (I wouldn't let that motorcycle anywhere around her)
