Did you buy the bike new? If it was used, it may be geared lower than stock.

Nope brand new bike. My suspension is stock setup and there doesn't seem to be any sag in it though. Just about 1000 miles on bike so maybe bike suspension will break in a bit.

I can't tell if you guys are bragging, complaining, or if the whole thing is a joke.

well all I am serious, I would like to keep the front wheel down when hitting the gas hard, I dont need to draw any additional attention to me if i am driving a little more "spiritedly."

See, I don't get this. I have an '09 with stock exhaust. I weigh 175 lbs, and I've only ever made the bike wheelie once, on purpose, in a parking lot. I had to hit the throttle once, back it off and then hammer it as it starting to slow. I wheelied for about 1.5 seconds.
I've tried to power wheelie in 2nd and I don't think I've ever come close.

Either I'm doing something wrong or there's something wrong with my bike at the low end...
