I think Spunes idea of "front end up" and mine are not quite the same! The threads officially over when the last guy who says it can be done posts a pic of it BEING done or nobody makes any more claims that it even CAN be done. Such a silly notion to try and wheel a bike like a ba or sm

Yep. I mean why bother? Even if a miracle happens and you get the front wheel up, it'll probably just mouse-trap and break one thing or another.

If Jean Pierre Goy [<that's a link, btw] can do it with all of the beemers, I'm bettin' he can do it with any of the Triumphs as well. The video is about 8 minutes; he wheelies an R1200C (the "most underpowered BMW ever" according to snobbish BMW purists) about 3:20 into the vid. Then he does it with a K1200LT. Of course this guy is a highly skilled professional. The average owner probably shouldn't even think about doing the things he does on a bike.

I'm playin the bull$HIT card on that pic and video clip! I once saw burt and jan jump a rocket powered red transam over a river! I'm pretty sure that didn't really happen the way they portray it either!!
But of course if you want to believe something you saw in a movie then maybe you thing the gen lee REALLY could make its tires squeal on a dirt road!
