Fat Bob wheel stands
Hi all. Just joined. I'm an old Bueller settled into my 2012 FXDF (think that's it).
Looking for a little feedback before I start playing with wheelies. Can't be that much different to the old X1 apart from the wheel base, handling, weight and sanity issues.
A concern for me is the belt and clutch strength, though I think they'll be fine.
I'm thinking maybe 41/2 in second, clutch in throttle firm, clutch out. Keep her in a straight line easy up and easy down. I reckon she'll give a little grunt and haul up. Or shit itself with much crunching and screeching on engine internals and lots of shiny bits smashed and slaughtered.
It doesn't sound like rocket science but some feedback would be appreciated. I've only just got 9 K klm on her and she's still all shiny so the fear factor is an issue as well. Sort of.
Once I start I know it'll be a snap. Or maybe not.
