Well this is a different type of competition. We all know the xx is the faster. I raced the kq and my launches would throw my front up and and I would pass him at the 45 mph mark with fronts still off ground(ok I wasn't really trying hard on the launch, all good fun). But what we did do is play follow the leader. I got winched out once after I made it about 75 yards farther than the 4x4. I was stuck and looked back and the kq was pretty much at the beginning. This mud was the really soupy bottomless type. I was able to stay on top and he didn't. The 300ex hit it harder than me and made it about 10 feet farther. He worked hard for the last 20, when mine sp7un out I stopped and let them winch me out. And just for fun I had the kq pace me on riding a wheelie, in the space provided I was able to ride one thru 62.

Um, holy crap. I ride like a complete wuss (same way I do everything), but I can't even imagine trying to ride a wheelie for that long and at that speed. Seriously, how much room did you have here?

I would gess somewhere in the 500 yard range, roughly 1/4 mi. My grandpas farm has a field roughly 1/2 mile long and I have ridden well into 5th with the front up

trx700....You need to go riding with me again and we will do a wheelie clinic! Its all about the balance point... anybody can speed up in a wheelie.. but can you slow down on the rears? I can....start in 1st and work your way to 3rd and then over compensate your balance point and slow down and down shift... all the way back to 1st!

And if you go to the dunes, get some paddles. I had plenty of power but couldn't keep it up that long cuz as soon as it would come up the wheels started gripping lol.

Tire presures need to be checked, if the rear tires aren't close to the same psi, you won't go anywhere near straight.

yuseall4 and crwh, I will go riding with you guys any day when it's not raining. LOL
It has been too wet to ride, but it should all change this month. I do need to check my air. Bike seems to tilt to the right when its up in the air. I will let you know on my progress you wheelie kings.

No paddles at this time. The wife cut me off from spending until the kitchen is remodeled. LMBO!
