Wow...for awhile now, I was getting bummed after reading how easy it was to get the Versys up on one wheel in first gear, and then having to work pretty hard to wheelie in real life. I live in very Southern Louisiana and it's literally been over 90* for the past 6 months...that's just how it is here.
100% humidity and over 90* everyday for half the year.
I could get a wheelie by lagging throttle for a split second and then jumping on it really hard. It would pull up high, but I felt like I was having to work harder at it than everyone else was letting on. It was discouraging, to think my Versys was down on power.
Well... Today was the first day in a loooooong time where it was finally mid 70's and NO HUMIDITY!
Wow, what a difference a little cooler weather brings!
I can be rolling along at 3k-4k rpm, grab some throttle, and up she comes...what a great feeling. I expect the fun to only increase as the cold sets in down here. And when I say 'cold', I mean anything under 70*.
