    I guess you could say I use the bounce method Mayhem, at about 40-45 mph in second I'll goose the throttle, slam it shut as I lean forward then hand full of gas and a good yank on the bars as I lean way back and up she comes. Same thing in third at 60-70 with more body english.

It's all in that feeling. And as a heterosexual male obviously expressing feelings and anything along those lines is not my strong suit...

    Ok cool, thanks for explaining! I've heard similar from others. I'm sure it'll come with seat time. I don't like feeling like I'm hammering on the bike just trying to rip it up all the time. I can't get more big tickets either man lol. Really trying to make it without getting pulled over once this year!!
