I recently saw a video of a guy on a v-rod clutching up a wheelie while driving down the road. I believe he was in 2nd gear. Very impressive ! The bike just exploded with a burst of power. Made me wonder if the Stryker was capable of this. I'm 63 and have no business doing a wheelie. Anyone out there know if this is possible or have done one or know someone who has. Yeah, I know I look cool rolling down the road on the Stryker and it does go fast but what is it really capable of doing?

I dont know about doin one while rolling because I havent been willing to try, but I have brought the front wheel up a few times from a dead stop (accidently). Most of the time when I roll on the throttle to hard the rear just spins, but a few times I guess the conditions were just right and I got enough traction for it to pop up. First time the ol lady was on the back and she just about killed me when we got to the bar. My father-in-law who was riding with us gave me a big thumbs up though...LOL

dont think I would have to balls to do it.. On a dirtbike, quad all day but on the stryker with the raked out front end, I just think that it would cause major stress on the frame... just my 2 cents.
