greetings...

the first time i wheelied the eleven hundert rs was pulling out on the 1 from the big sur chevron... it can be challenging because of the traffic... i told the mickster to hold on... gassed it to nearly red and poped the clutch... o my... f-ing vertical... made a nice arc onto the road and kept it up through 2nd gear... saw the popo and eased it down... was going 20 over...

after that she always wants to wheelie... thats why i gotts a spare of everything thats gotts splines...

anyway... this rig has an ohio plate... must be chaos with his great grandson in tow...

Dumb question but can a classic K actually pull a wheelie?

Pulled a couple of accidental wheelies on my 75. And you could pull wheelies on a Honda 90 postie bike.  :hehehe
