wel it is easier for me to use the right, thats why you stay in 1st gear so you have thatt engine brake, cause using the rear brake isnt the easiest thing to do when the bike is up right! and if your trying to wheelie a warrior, your carzy, that thing will be so unpredictable on one tire its scary to even think about it! but what can i say, im just learning as well.

Yep. Still not convinced that's real... and if it is real, thinking it was a mistake and he dropped it. Of course, I could be wrong.

Is your M109 all stock? I would love to see what the warrior would do against the M109.... Maybe when I come up we can meet at the track and have some fun

Where the warrior may not be the best bike to learn on.... they are pretty well balanced for their weight and size. I was real surprised about that.

One thing about this bike is that is has a low RPM limit. It will max out at 5200 rpms. So I will either need to shift in the air as the guy in the video does, or just not get it up too high or for a long distance.

My only hang up on all this is flipping over from going to high. Other than that, I am pretty confident about being on one wheel.

Cornering on the other hand, that scares me more with this bike than getting it on one wheel, just because of the weight... I am afraid that it will slide out from under me as I mentioned in another post. All it would take is a little loose gravel or dirt under that front wheel and BANG!!! down I'd go.

After reading over some comments, watching some YouTube videos of sport bike guys losing it on the way down.... I am thinking that I need to be patient until I get a second bike so that if something does happen, I still have transportation. This warrior is my only vehicle.

Thanks for the tips....

Yeah, I hear they are awesome bikes. I think I can top out at 135 stock. I do have a couple of mods though so I think I can get it a little faster. I think I have done 115 on it, that was back when I first got it... I was trying to see what she could do.... got too nervous about going that fast on public roads, even thought they were back roads with no traffic. Just not safe.

Cool, thanks for that tip... I will google that.

Red Rock, that's a beautiful ride.... cannot wait to do it on a bike. Closest I got was my Jeep with the top off LOL.

I have a VTX 1800 it is heavier than your warrior and my chicken strip is pretty small. The biggest thing I would say is get comfortable with the bike. I have gone down at Redrock which was a nothing that could have been done to avoid it; however the bigger bikes are a lot more stable in the turns than people give them credit for.

Thanks :) I think that my fear of sliding is the same as my fear of flipping it back trying to do a wheelie. Gun shy of having something bad happen again.

I too had to lay my bike down... partly due to a faulty part, second due to soft dirt. Pulling out of my local CVS a few months after getting the bike, it stalled as I was crossing traffic. To avoid getting hit, I had to head off the road and it went down quick. Scared the hell out of me since that is the 1st time anything like that has ever happened.

It's getting better, but it's still in the back of my head which I hear can be just as bad... they say keeping that in you mind will cause you to second guess instinct.
