    reasons I am not going to do good on the track


    Tires are old, tires are new, clutch slipped, clutch is too grabby, clutch springs are shot, couldn't keep front wheel on the ground, not enough traction, water on the track, missed (fill in blank) gear, engine bogged, too much gas in tank, bad gas in the tank, too much humidity in the air, camera flashes distracted me, fell asleep at the lights, locusts, snow, earth quake arrghhh!!!


    That's all I can think of for now. I'll get some more tonight

    not enough gas in tank, stock air filter, crappy aftermarket air filter, haven't gotten dyno'd yet, dyno'd for different elevation, wheelied on launch, bike in reverse, launched in 3rd, plague of frogs, wasn't listening to rock music on headphones (see: iron eagle syndrome).

    dude, the only time my front wheel's been off the ground was when my bike was on her side...

    and since all i've heard is how much of a wheelie-machine the SV is, i'll just let y'all draw yer own conclusions.

    Dude the problem with trying to wheelie an SV as far as I'm concerned is you have to have a double jointed right wrist to get all the way to WOT!

    I can do it but I don't feel like I can have much throttle control near WOT so I never really try it in low gears.

    Oh and Taylor, the SVS is less wheelie happy than the SV due to the different gearing, which ought to make it even harder.

    I got the front wheel a teeeeny bit off the ground once, when I wasn't trying to do it. I'll admit trying and failing a few other times.

    How about. "I couldn't see the finish line, my visor was fogged up." And as far as last week goes, the time people had no clue what the hell they were doing. Or how about, "I ate a big dinner." Or maybe "I had to shit or pee."

    I'm with you there.

    If you don't know whether you need to shit or pee that can be REALLY distracting
