Pretty good. You are voted through to the next round.... where you must accomplish the wheelie while taking the back wheel over a substantial log.



I don't know if mine would do it with a 16T.

The wheelie tendency was part of what I was wanting to tune out of it!

(yeah, I am just no fun).

mines lowered too and i know what you mean, you can really rag on it off the line and just the front end gets a little light but stays close to the ground, but it will come up if you clutch up it in the power band
