My passenger peg attachments didn't seem that strong to me. I removed them since my wife won't ride on the back of the 109 anyway :D

Pretty sweet. That's some throttle control right there, especially since he can't use the rear brake to control the speed and what not. Also, it's good to see he's geared up nicely. First person I thought about when I saw that pic was Wizard or DCizzle, but his tail light isn't clear. Then again, it could have been taken before he replaced it.

No problem with the passenger peg strength..remember if you can step on one to get your leg over..it is carrying all you weight..so two should be fine.
I notice the "Big Dog" M/C sign in the background. :D

They carry a fairly complete line including Suzuki, Big Dog, Victory, Yamaha, and Aprilla among others. The shop is Full Throttle motorsports here in Lansing Michigan.
What's nice is Capitol Harley Davidson is right across the street from them so they probably got a chance to enjoy seeing how flexible metric power is.

I didn't think my 109 was powerful enough to get itself up to the balancing point like that..... maybe it's all the weight his shifting by using the rear pegs?

Who knows, it's also possible he has a rear brake hand lever installed?

Here's what he said in his post:The M109 is one the best cruiser's for stand up wheelies. Great power, long 1st gear, big tire for lots of traction. A few good pics in the gallery. More to come! Just need an air shifter to shift gears while standing on the rear pegs.
