    Didnt expect it either. Again it was more of a hop up not a wheelie!

    I saw the guy that bought my first streetbike - a Kawasaki LTD 550 do a wheelie. I was impressed... and surprised.

    When consulting the magic 8 ball for advice, one must first ask it "will your answers be accurate?"

    All I knew is that first gear was able to be shifted into, and I went for it lol.

    I was glad nothing else happened too! Surprised me alot but in a good way. I just remember how free the front end felt for that bit of a second and was like holy $%/# the front end came up!


    If the thing was manageable to wheelie which, that shows it might if I were to try to on purpose, I might try to learn if I feel comfortable. She sure is heavy though, even though I cant feel it riding....
