Wink 20minute wheelie

A few days ago, I had an epiphany; that a wheelie should feel natural in a sense. My previous perception of a wheelie was a bit more rough and violent. So with that thought of it to be feeling natural, I wanted to go do it and not give a care or fright. . .

Just a few ago, I went to a school parking lot, and to the area where the school band has a spot to practice on the pavement
(a full paved football field with lines and all) but no goal posts, lol.

I already know how to do an endo, I mean stoppie (lol). So I was accelerating and dragging-it fast, getting used to the acceleration. Faster, and quicker, and faster, pulling a endo at the end of each run. My endo's are OK, I have done 4foot ones but they are only static. I can also do rolling endo's, but not as high as my static ones. After a good ammont of trials it just wouldn't power wheelie. So when accelerating, I feathered the clutch (as I was doing the whole time there) quicker and quicker. My first wheelie on the buell was like 6 inches, because that last bit of clutch to slide in, I just dumped it. And I did feel very natural. Long story short, literally in 20minutes I pulled a 4foot wheelie. I was out of the house for 30minutes, 10minute round trip, 20minute wheelie.
I would of stayed longer, but last night I had a bad dream, there was the dream and background music(a song).
And when stunting, that music/song came on my mp3 player onto my ear; and my superstitious ass left

Okay, seriously... Don't give in to the misuse of words man. Keep the sport pure.

Don't believe me? Just go back through old Motocross tapes. Wait until the announcer says something about a racer who endos. Watch what the racer is doing. He usually just dug his front tire into the face of the landing on a double, and is in the process of looking like superman. I don't really give a crap if the squids think their term is right or not... facts are facts.









This is, of course, not to be confused with other types of crashes such as low sides/High sides, which often produce the same body position.

I know the squids of the world will NEVER learn the correct term for such things, and I also get the fact that you will NEVER understand the frustration of people like me. You all remind me so much of my Aunt. She still, to this very day, REFUSES to call a hard drive a hard drive. She refers to it as 'Memory'. She always calls me complaining that her 'memory' is full.

Yes, what you do is the same. It is ignorant, no offense intended. If people let the correct terms get lost in the wash like this, it is only a matter of time before dragging your knee is called 'low siding', Pulling a wheelie is referred to as 'going over backwards', and such.

In short... Don't be ignorant, squidly. Help to keep some sort of common dialog among the members of our sport.

And become a dirt bike fag? No thanks.

In God, we trust; all others must provide data.
