saw my first wheelie on it today. didn't mean to. i didn't think this thing was going to be wheelie prone at all due to the weight and long wheelbase. however, i spent all day on base, so had to behave (MP's love tagging bikers that misbehave). as i was leaving base, i had to taste some power. rolled out in first gear up to redline and slammed in 2nd. wheel came up and rode it smoothly out. suprising as it was, it felt really nice.

Are you sure your wheel came off the ground? Alot of times people think their front tire comes up when really its all front fork travel. First gear I can believe cause I've done it but 2nd, I dont know about that. And riding it, no way. Sorry man

by riding it out i mean that it came back smoothly to the ground, without smacking down hard....not keeping it up.
