Abrupt is not your friend

it is all about subtle, controlled input

Never seen one wheelie before!

Some years ago I DID manage to flip my old Dnepr once while trying to hoist the car while doing the plank ride on two wheels at an ABATE event.

Fortunately, no video cameras were running!

I do my best work in front of a crowd.....

PS HI VERNON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
