    My First Wheelie...........

    I need to preface this by saying I came off an R1, which is a very different animal. The sweet spot on the R1 was like 3000-3500rpms and it would just come right up rolling on the throttle. I wheelied the shit outta that thing every chance I had. Clutched it up in 2nd very easily too.

    The S3 felt so different to me when I got on it that I wanted to get comfortable before I tried pulling the front end off the ground. When I finally got comfortable, I decided to give it a shot. Hooooooooly Torque down low!!! This things sweet spot (at least with my 6'5" 280lb ass on it) is like 2000rpms. Wow! ..........and gahd dayum does it just yaaank off the ground.

    Anyway, just another reason to love this sweet piece of machinery. Though I'd share.

    Damn. You're a big boy. This gives me faith. You got me a little in the weight. I can't get a decent whoolie.

    Thanks for the hint. Did you progress to 2nd gear or clutch ups?

    I mean I'm 6'5" 280lbs..... so yeah, I'd consider that big. I'm not fat by any stretch, just beefy. It's pretty evenly distributed.

    Oh wait. For some reason I though Zoidberg started the thread and said he was 280. It's been a long day and plenty left.
