My conclusion, best wheelie bike ever!

I'm near Chicago and we NEVER get to ride in February, EVER. Well, we've been having crazy 60-70 degree temps for the last 2 weeks. Also, we did get a ton of rain to wash all the road salt away before the nice weather. So, I decided to pull the cover off my Brutale and take it out. First off, it was sooooooo nice to be able to ride when we typically have a good 5 month hibernation from it. Secondly, I couldn't stop from wheeling it! First gear is too easy, so I like 2nd gear light clutch ups. The bike seriously just loves it. And it balances very easily too. I've had 20+ motorcycles, most of them liter sport bikes, and I'm pretty sure this is the best wheelie bike i've ever owned. My 2005 GSXR1000 might be a close second since that bike was very easy to wheelie too. I'm 6'4" so I always ride sit downs, and they just come so smooth on the Brutale.

LOL, well at least you know you have a bike suited perfectly for it!
I'm no professional stunter, but I do like to do wheelies quite often. I was hoping that would slow down as I get older, but I get better at them and can't quit

Lol, looking good! I'm happy you can get away with wheelies on the track. All the track day companies i've rode with will kick you off the track for the day if you pull intentional wheelies!

It's racing not a track day or coaching mate, and it's not intentional (mostly), watch the video's, it does it aaalll the time, ever since I can remember Like Chuck said, it's the fat bastard counterweight.
