You should thank Alex for breaking it in right for you! Or was he just warming it up a bit? Or maybe my guess is wrong ... is that one of those OC squids riding it? :wtf:

I like those kind of wheelies. Now I appreciate the endless ones, but I think the ones under just brute power that hang there under the balance point are my favorite. I dunno, those just float my boat...

Pete - yeah, and I know better too.

On a related note, a guy here in So. Cal. lost his life at a recent track day. The kicker is that it happened when he was riding his bike back from tech inspection! He wasn't even on the track.

I'll wear all my gear. Sorry.

Alex,

Same kind of mishap nearly happened to me. Was at <10mph and went headover, right around the corner from my home. I was wearing gear, but judging from helmet scratches I could have been f**ked up.

Thats why I mention it...

Lets be safe this season guys!

When I dropped my MV last November at 1 mph, there was still enough momentum to push me foward into a roll and my helmet did hit the ground. Granted 1 mph impact probably wouldn't kill me (can you imagine - "Motorcyclist killed in 1 mph crash") but I'd have a good sized bruise on my head.

But I think you should wear gear...or get rid of those tan lines. :laughing:
