I have done 2 wheelies with my older '94 1500.
Once during a tight turn at a 90 degree intersection while following a gl1800 kamakazi rider by the name of Redwinger
. He was gaining on me, and I had the 1500 wound up to 6,000 RPM staying with him in the twisties. I slowed for the corner, and just opened the throttle some more and while still rolling, put it in 1st and hammered it.
Whoops! raised the front wheel a foot at least while in a turn. Oops!
another time, I was being a hot rod Jockey with some crotch rocket guy here in town. He was showing off big time at all of the street lights. He was going to show off for me again because I had "raced him" through the last 2 intersections and he blew me away of course.
This time though, he wanted to make a real show of it, and lit up the rear tire. The 1500 lifted the front wheel a few inches and I was across the intersection before he knew what happened.
I just dropped off and let him go, but his smirk had gone away. Bet he never told his friends that a big Goldwing out foxed him
