Oh man. :( My power wheelie at 60mph didn't get recorded due to a low gopro battery.

Yeah. I usually don't have to shift into 5th until 70 or so.

1st gear is good until 30-35, 2nd is good until 50, 3rd until 60+. My third gear power wheelies are usually around 45mph and 6k rpm?

You can lift the front wheel at 60mph without clutching it up on your 440? That's impressive. I need to ride with you guys soon. I rode from Kent to Seattle today and farted around downtown and up on the hill.

Today was the first day I was able to do it in third and fourth. Before, I could clutch up and power in both first and second up to 40mph with no issues. Third gear I could bring the tire up some when clutching.

I tried a new technique someone showed me. Push down on the bars to preload the suspension, then yank on them back while you throttle. As long as I am around 6k or so RPM it comes up no issues. They weren't very long. If I keep on the throttle it will loop me. I need to find the balance point.

*sigh* I need a bigger garage.

I can see that conversation now: "Honey, we need to move your car out of the garage so I can buy 4 more motorcycles."

Anyone got an extra couch?

There's always room somewhere... Tall ceilings allow a loft type of feel.... just make a ramp for you to ride up... ........................................
