Re: Abtech is a squid

That ain't no stand up and if you know the location, I'm turning at the same time at around 100 mph or so. Thanks to "The Documentor" NH for the cool shot!

Re: Abtech is a squid

Way cool shot! Will part of the instruction at Grattan include how to perform a power wheelie?

Re: Abtech is a squid

My little 3" power wheelies in that spot paled in comparison...

Just ask NinerPilot

Power wheelies are OK if they come naturally. I just don't want people trying to outdo each other doing "horn monos" down the front straight.

Oh I almost forgot. You should see this same section on the RC

Re: Abtech is a squid

I'm thinkin' I'll need to be in the Training Wheels class at Grattan so I don't get smoked too bad...

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

Re: Abtech is a squid

You know, I've never had the front wheel off the ground. I've had it get light from hard acceleration, but no power wheelies. Ah, that's ok. I'd probably wet myself!

Re: Abtech is a squid

ButtonWillow out here in CA has some pretty serious wheelie "mounds" --as fun as it is--you could conceivably loop it---and you need to make a pretty hard right upon landing---all good fun

I knew that would get a response from you...

I wasn't watching you...I was busy setting up to pass you going into 13!

That is a cool pic...

The way I remember it, I had just zipped past you on the back wheel when the photo was snapped.... If Don had been a bit earlier with the shutter....

Yep, it's quite fun...have only been out there on my F3 and that comes up so easy you have to be careful...can't imagine what'd it feel like on my 954..
