CLONE!


Nice bike there! I have the same bike, and same black rear rack, and same bottom mudflap piece unscrewed.

Nice pictures too! But I'd never try a wheelie, I'd too much of a chicken to do anything silly, I'd probably have my bike fall over and get scratched up.

I've never tried a wheelie, but I'm pretty good at Photoshop...

For anyone tempted to try one: At least a couple crashes have been reported here by people doing wheelies on their Buds. The rear fender hits the street and causes a wipeout.

[edit: I moved this thread to the Scooter Gallery because it's mostly pics.]

Interesting wheelie picture. Judging by the impression of the rear wheel it looks as though it was performed on loose gravel. I point this out cause it looks kinda surreal. I mean, you make it looks so easy. Cool

Yes, he is good at that. I'm tempted to put a little shadow behind the rear of the scooter for his head. No?

There's a mistake on the front tire, it was "cut into' when edited, and I can see some white border lines from the original still Razz

Please don't read into the "little shadow" part. Smile

BTW I like the Number three picture the best. I like the way black and orange go together.

Plus the fact that you couldn't pull a one handed wheelie and keep the handlebars straight. It would pull to the right. I have tried a wheelie on my b125 and it was not graceful. It's hard to do because there isn't enough torque. I was lucky not to wipe out. It's was a stupid thing to do, but I'll probably try it again some day. I don't learn from my mistakes.

Great picture though.

Here is a picture of a b125 wheelie done by Seth from Metro Scooter in Cincinnati. The photo was taken by Bonegirl or Lagerhead.

And his feet are on the rear passenger pegs!

For him to do it right and get it on picture for real, that makes him the coolest scooter rider, ever.

But like I said, I'd never do anything crazy on my bike, I like my arms and legs not broken and my bike scratch free. I would never try a wheelie.

Nice pics, tyger... too bad everyone was analyzing that wheelie one to death. I felt like I was back at school in one of our critiques! HARSH! Anyways, I enjoy it... whether it's real or not, it's the thought that counts. Wink

No kidding! Have some fun, people.

Good thing I didn't post pics of jumping a Buddy off my roof, through a flaming hoop, onto a neighbor's roof and over their pool, landing on the diving board, doing a triple Lindy (it's a BIG pool) and landing safely in their driveway. Unfortunately, the video camera broke so we were unable to get it all on video.

Awwah come on guys. 72.21% of everything on MB gets over analyzed. Sometimes the same topic in multiple different posts at the same time. Let us have our fun. Wink

Your pictures are great, even the wheelie one, no matter who mastered it.

BTW, I saw a guy do a Rattler 110 wheelie today, it was the real deal.

42.1% of the time I am right every time. It's a known fact.

I disagree completely. Statistically all statistics have are within 12 standard deviation of being correct... We use more standard deviations in Ohio than other parts of the country. Plus all statistics are have a +or- 81% accuracy rate. Krusty, I know this because I am a professional. What The?
