Ditto with my Speed Triple... But I NEVER intend to raise the wheel. But it does happen under hard acceleration sometimes. Short wheelbase, high center of gravity, relatively torquey...

The people at "Wheelie University" use Triumph Speed Triples in their wheelie training classes.

How many here knew there actually is, a Wheelie University?
Yes, there really is.
Now, if you want to work on "wheelies/jumps & slides" there's a school for that too, at www.motoventures.com
Look for "WJ&S" classes.

Keep in mind that if you don't put it down gently you'll eventually break the front engine mount casting too.

^For that reason I'd recommend picking up something like this:

https://trackerdie.com/products/dyna-case-saver

I have one of the "original landing pads" on my FXDL, wouldn't mind grabbing one of these for my FXDXT. Wouldn't consider this a fail safe by any means but it certainly reduces the odds of breaking your case mounts.

*Note - not affiliated with the above company, just think it's a cool product...

Very cool indeed!
Good for some oneupmanship when it comes to claiming you have every accessory imaginable on your bike too.

Yes, good tip. The guy in the video did the same thing.

To each their own...but I never understood the thought process of doing stunts on a Harley.....you guys must have a lot of money or the bikes are just cheaper where your at...cause to me they are to dam expensive to abuse....and what you have to put into them to get them there....
