Accidental wheelie

Yesterday after visiting with my family I was leaving and going down the driveway. It is a gravel drive that is somewhat hardpacked. For some strange reason I decided to gooch the "V". First gear and already rolling, no clutch. Suddenly I realized that I was looking toward the sky, so I released the throttle and it fail back down. I was shocked. So shocked that I had to do it again. The really shocking part is that the "V" did this on the gravel. I just thought it may spin out a bit, I never expected to pop it up. I guess the reason I decided to post this outside of it being just funny, is that I underestimated the bike's ability. Especially on gravel and rock.
