big surprising wheelie

Got the Brutale out of the shop for some warranty work, it had been in the shop for about three weeks. found a straight and thought i would do a big accekeration run. shifted from first lofting the front a little and accelerating, then shifted to third and punched it, front whel came up to about 60 degrees and held for just long enough to look down at the speedo. 98mph, no effort other than full throttle, amazing to me. I know it is possible to do much faster wheelies but the effort was so minimal it just surprised the hell out of me.

With just a 750???? I can gas the crap out of mine in 3rd and it just accelerates like a mad man.....granted, I've never been sitting upright....but that's fantastic to hear!!!!

Congrats!

Fun ain't it? Did a 4k crank on first on my totally stock 910 and it was spinning rear tire and lifting the front end, banged in 2nd and the front stayed where it was while still spinning the back wheel, went into third and and common sense kicked in when I glanced at the speedo!

Damn amazing how much grunt the 910 has. Positively brutale! Gotta love it!

I've lifted the front off the ground several times in traffic, but to be honest the thought of a proper wheelie scares me. Do you guys practice holding a wheelie up or do you just get it up and down so fast that it doesn't matter?

I promisse to provide detailed report on the wheelie subject once i get my speering damper. I am not too confident about wheelies without damper, but I already picked it up in second gear quite easily.

Stoppies are awesome with Brutale!!! brakes are very strong and easili modulated.

All i can say is that if you lend from wheelie with your front wheel anything other but straight, you risk your bike getting in to tankslapper.

Frames have some flexibility, designed to cancel out some forces, sometime it does not work and bike goes crazy.

example, is going in to Carousel turn 5 into 6 in NHIS. You are wide open on the gas over the hill, so frame gets loaded to one side and then you lend from the wheelie trying to counter bikes drift...result is a tankslapper.
unless you have steering damper to absorb those forces...

there was an article in the roadracing world few years back, explaining those things using Math and Physics that's a bit beyond me, but I gave you a summary above.
