    I saw one of these set up at our local Hooters bike night in New Castle, Delaware. It was interesting for a few minutes. It attracted a crowd of sport bike riders, that’s for sure. Of course what wouldn’t draw a crowd in a small parking lot where there is not much to do but walk around and look at the same bikes for the millionth time week after week. Glad I finally figured out there’s more to riding than bike nights at Hooters!

    I wish I had one of these to practice wheelies. I always chicken out just below the sweet spot and tap the brake to bring the front down.

    Plus I could set this up in my living room and ride along with Dust to Glory or something.

    I’d like to see this done with a raked and streched V-twin chopper with a 20″ over front end.
    …Now THAT would be a wheelie!

    Hey Jesper bro, check out my new blog… it’s http://www.bikerblabb.com

    I’m the web marketer for http://www.batterystuff.com and found your site while doing some research for an article we are putting together. I just wanted to say thanks. Great footage, I defiantly want to give this a try, it looks like fun.

    so i am thinkin, if the local dept of transportation, hiway patrol, etc.. set these up, then maybe so many sport bikers would be safer and alive because they would have a place to practice besides the freeways with cagers who do not see us…

    Yea maybe. But some people would probably argue that it might lead to riders practicing their skills in public traffic as well.

    Just like it is with track days. Some say it prevents people from racing in the street, because you blow out your steam on the track. Others say it leads to racing in the streets because you get more confident with racing and believe it’s “safe”.

    Personally i believe that the more training you get of various sorts on your motorcycle, the better/safer rider you become.

    Bah! Sportbikes are built for track riding not for stunts.
    I saw one of these at a bike show with a chick in a bikini BOUNCING around on it. I must say that was very fun to watch!

    Hey guys,

    I was wondering. I love the machine. How can I purchased one? I live in Hawaii and can have it shipped here. I have a CBR and love wheelies and think it would be a great investment and really cool. Thaks look forward to hearing from you.

With this being said, I also provide private lessons. For more feel free to contact me at satchcycles@yahoo.com. I’d be glad to answer any questions you have.

    Hey I don’t really know how old these post’s are about the wheelie simulator, but I’m throwing this out here anyway. I’m in Indiana, and I have a Total (All event contracts, contacts, business name, some logo t-shirts, simulator trailer w/ fan, and a 2002 suzuki 750gsxr 7000+ miles) Business for sale $15,500.

The biggest being the XDL event in INDY during Moto GP weekend, if you wanted to travel a bunch you could go to all of the XDL events. Will deliver to surrounding states for $250. email cycowheelies@yahoo.com
