Reminds me of some fat dork on a tl1000r, last night, He didn't wipe out but he was trying to do a burnout and he would just hop forward , front wheel locked and all... He did get it going after 6 try's!

LOSER!!!

The other vid looked fake ... was that a zx9 or a ninja500R...

My friend and I actually did this! (jet fuel)
Me mowed 328 yards that day!

i like you scream at people who can't hold a line on exit ramps for screwing up your corner speed.

and porting your lawn mower, weedwacher, leaf blower.

but the video's are great. the guy on the gsxr, too much.

are you talking about the wheelie video? i actually recently discovered that it is a fellow austin biker. i know the road. i know his friends. the wheelie video is real. yes the flying bike almost smashed the crap out of the camera operator. also, the camera was right in front of some bikes, apparently, lined up at the side of the road. barely missed taking them down. i'm told it was ~3K in damage.

be it known that i personally don't know the guy, and i wasn't there. but i'm acquainted with a buddy of his. i actually... not too proud of this usually... have never wheelied in my life nor tried. one day, on the dirt on a bike i don't yet own... until then i try to keep both wheels down at all times.

that u may be a racer is so funny cause its so true... i do have broken (used) motorcycle parts in my office at work.. old sprockets. ive seen the second video. the 1st.. man what an idiot.

hey tafka.. how do u like the sv? i would think u would be wheeling all over the place.. but better to be safe & ride w/in your limits.. & learning on the dirt is a good idea too.

you'd think. but i love it too much to learn to wheelie on it. i feel the front lifting from time to time, but don't think its pulling clear. and i'm certainly not trying to get it to, either. like i say, after learning to wheelie on a crash-resistant bike on some nice soft earth... then maybe i'll go a little more hooligan-ish on the sv. for now, i'm loving it anyway.
stepped up from an ex500, and the difference is, naturally, remarkable. way faster, basically, even with its $h!te suspension. (i actually believe that the cruddy stock suspension on the ex is better than the cruddy stock suspension on the sv... at least as it matches to the other abilities of the bike.) i've only had the sv for a few weeks, but on my backroad expeditions, i've found new and profound joy. the only thing is, it seems a little too easy. getting the ex wound up and ready to go, you know... well it was a much more complex exercise. ;)

Hey tafka,

Im with you on the suspension! But at least it has bigger brakes, tires and engine... but the bike is one of the funnest I've driven. :)

Oh I didn't mean fake, I saw the bike crash ... I mean It looked staged.

I knew it was a zx9!! :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

i've got to do something about the front suspension, and soon. the rear, too, but i think i'm going to have to wait a little longer for the $$ on the rear. for the front, did he do the gsxr front end swap or did he just do cartridge emulators or something? i'm still hemming and hawing between the emulators or just doing new fork oil and springs ($$ again... but the emulators aren't THAT much).
general opinion seems to be that the gixxer rear shock is better than the SV stock shock, but not worth the hassle all in all. but a used aftermarket gixxer shock... i've been keeping my eyes open. that i might be able to swing.

I'm a big fan of the emulators - put a set on my old ZX11, and they totally transformed the bike. Bumps that used to jar me & make the wheel hop disappeared with the emulators. Full-lean bumps that used to upset the chassis were no longer a problem. They're easy to install, and worth every penny. Along with a Corbin seat & steel brake lines, I consider them a must. The 12 has a cartridge fork, but if it didn't I would have already put the emulators in.

Tony, Huntsville is a nice city. It's rather small, but the air is clean & the people are very friendly. The Tennessee river runs by, and there are many miles of open country surrounding the city, with very good roads for guys like us.
On the other hand this is a small city in the midst of farmland, and people still tend to look at you wonderingly when you come into a store or restaurant wearing your leathers.
I remember a four-year old watching me intently as I got off my bike in front of a store, then turning to his dad and saying, "Look, Dada, a Power Ranger!!".
As far as things to do, we do have the Space & Rocket center, which is very entertaining. There are some good restaurants here, an dragstrip right outside of town where they run pretty much every weekend.
Down the road in Birmingham, is the Barbour Motorcycle collection, which is one of the finest collections in the world. Birmingham is also home to the Civil Rights institute, which is very highly recommended.
I can guarantee you this - when you do come, you're gonna wish you had brought your bike. Maybe we'll find one for ya.

leon,

everywhere i go i wish i had my bike. :)

we planned on checking out the space muesem, but hopefully i can get a couple of guys to go to the drag strip. i love drag racing.

i haven't seen much of huntsville before. but it seems like a nice place. i do know it's hot!!!

i understand totally about leathers. i live a much smaller town than huntsville (actually didn't think of huntsville as small). one time a girl said to my buddy in his leathers (about 90* outside), "i'm hot just looking at you." he said, "i have that effect on women."
