okay, im sure some of you may remember all the mechanical problems ive had with my X. anyways, i finally got all those problems squared away, and have finally been able to enjoy some real VTX riding.
anyways, i went riding with a couple buddies last night for a few hours, and now i have a question. is it possible to pop a wheelie on a cruiser???
let me set up the scenario, us 3 guys come to a red light, and we are all sharing 1 lane (we dont normally ride 3 side by side, but only because we came to a stop). the guy on my left is on a 06 boulevard M50, im in the middle, and the guy on my right is riding a vstar 1100. long story short, we decide to race them from the green light since my bike is finally performing properly. GREEN- i start to hammer on the throttle, and i just glance over to see the guy driving the vstar on my right, and i could swear on everything i saw that bike jump in the air. not just fork extension, but a leap! anyways, i tell myself i was just imaging it and i shift into 2nd and blow past the M50.
woohoo, i win (what a surprise). but when the vstar 1100 catches up, he looks like he has seen a ghost. this is what he said, and i quote.. "did you see that s*$&?! i just popped a wheelie!"
is this possible? im still replaying the event in my mind over and over again. i just dont think its possible. but both our minds cant be playing tricks on us. so under perfectly ideal circumstances, could it have really happened? popping the clutch in 1st at high RPM's?
let me know what you think. i just wanna know if im losing my mind or not. lol
