    Bring big balls instead of bells, then the wheelies will work better

    One of my so called mates was just saying how he didn't believe my bike has the guts to do a wheelie.

    I'll show him. I'll show him good.

    I've gotta learn quick, the only problem is my bike is held together with four different kinds of tape, the springs from inside pens and a shoelace. I'm afraid if I crash it it might fall apart. It's a Yamaha SR185 from the 80s, but it goes good for what it is.

    And the more I read these forums the more I realize I don't know jack about bikes. I don't know if I can even call myself a biker. I havn't really done anything to deserve the title. Maybe when I learn to pull an intentional wheelie. I've done a few, but never on purpose.

    Or perhaps I'll earn the title by going for a tour of the south island in the middleof winter. I think my dad called that the "brass balls tour".

    If your bike lacks the power to wheelie you'll have to bounce it then drop the clutch.
    Then I could get a Kb Tshirt, move to Timaru and become a full time crossdressing faggot

    Awesome reading. Have had bikes for years but still remember the wicked gravel rash when I was 16. Never been game since. Think I'll find a beach and give it a crack, thanks man

    My old mate Neville Stocker wheelied one of those pigs around the whole circuit of Baypark years back - I've even got photos of it somewhere!!
    Was such a laugh, who would have thought one of those old things could do that!! Whats more, the throttle cable broke and he had to use the cable!!!!
    Is it still beastiality if ya fuck a frozen chicken??

    Will reducing tyre pressure stop the bike from pulling a burnout? The last time I tried to pop it UPonONE (rolling at about 40kmh) it spun up instead of popping up.

    I haven't bothered trying another one since.
    I wave to every biker I see.
