I need a smilie of Homer Simpson drooling, I would love to do that with my KX.
You just need a little help from some friends.

I forgot how easy the Bandit wheelies with a passenger once and "rolled it on" with my wife on the back, she was hitting me on the shoulder, we get to the next stop and she's like "WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT FOR???" LOL I couldnt stop laughing we had gone about 100 yards or oon the back wheel and I hardly noticed until she started hitting me.
There is a one lane bridge with really steep entries/exits near me.
I had my ex on the back of my Daytona and decided to mess with her a bit, just a little throttle, no leaning, nothing drastic.....
9 o'clock without so much as pulling on the bar
Thank doG for armor by the time we got to the light I had to buy her a lot of drinks to sweet talk my way out of that one.
Met stunt rider Teach McNiel at our local BMW dealer recently, I even got to ride his F800GS. Great fun. Someone asked him why he doesn't pick an audience member to ride 2-up wheelies with him, like some stunt riders do.
Teach told the story of a semi-pro stunter that did that, had a female audience member climb on his bike, and he wheelied various stunts, including dragging the tail rail. Except,.....he didn't know that the gal had the one hand NOT around his middle,....was holding onto the tail rail.
She lost all four fingers of the hand during a show.
Haha, my girlfriend loves it when she's on the back and the front wheel comes up. I never do it on purpose with her on it, but coming up over the crest of hills while on the throttle it's hard not to carry the front wheel down the hill.
Two recent wheelies come to mind.
The first was on the GSA. Crossing a 50mph hwy, from a stop, at a nearly blind corner. I gassed it good to get across in a hurry. Hadn't noticed that the side street I was on dropped off precipitously on the other side. Next thing I know Mr Front tire is approaching the horizon while Mr Rear tire is proving he still has torque and traction. The bike and I are fine, we made a hasty recovery. Oops #1
#2 happened on the 690. Had just done some dirt and wanted some speed. So before you know it we are going quickly on a downhill, the wide open, country lane. Key word down. Hit a small rise in the road at about 65 while still accelerating. I normally do not do 70mph wheelies. Hopefully never will again. Rode it out but, damn. I'm too old for this shit.
Lessons learned (or not) ...a wheelie might bite you in the ass when you least expect it.
Lessons for the n00b
I think there was a motard KX500 for sale in the flea market about a year ago. Looked awesome.
