I've kinda heard that GD are playing together again, isn't Warren Haynes a part of it ? When I worked up in humboldt County a few years ago, one of the local guys I hired said they had a population explosion when Jerry passed.

Peace

I pulled my front wheel on my FLHP quite often, I do my best not to do this with my RG. And a wheelie on purpose? I would like to think that along with getting older, I have gotten wiser as well. No wheelies for me.

Hummm... Why not. Lets look at a short list why

Bent fork tubes.
Broken fork tubes.
Blown fork seals.
Stripped handlebar mounts.
Crushed rear fender.
Scraped mufflers.
Bent mufflers.
Bent exhaust mounts.
Broken drive belt.
Burned clutch plates.

But if you really want to do a wheelie just roll along in first gear at about walking speed, pull in the clutch, and rev the engine to about 5,000 rpm's. Now release the clutch without letting go of the throttle and hand on for dear life. Oh and when you feel it going over just a little too far feather the rear brake.
Let us know how it works out.

Should we ask how you know about that short list?

Funny

me too except my ex was NOT Fat - just pushing the drivers/passengers weight back makes a huge difference - also having an empty tank of gas makes a difference

the guy Slow Joe in SF keeps his feet on his REAR Pegs ...
