K12 wheelie !

I lost a picture that got me in TROUBLE with my SO . I had it on the desktop as a jpeg ,, when she opened it and ,,,, " IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT MY SON SEEING YOU DO " .
Setting up the new computer I lost it . It was the Fastest Color ( RED ) proving that the K flys ! I think Bear posted it long ago ,,, I would love to see it again so if someone has it can you post it again . Thanks , Stevie B

Thumbs up I remember that.

The rider is Darren Ward from Toronto. He had an aftermarket chip in the bike and a 2 Brothers exhaust. Going through the tunnels with him on the BRP, that exhaust note was LOUD. But effective.

Also noteworthy is that Yellow Taxi at the far left of the photo. That was LOUIS's first K12, and I think it was after this rally that he was punted into the median of I-77 by an 18-wheeler and totaled the bike. LOUIS is the bearded guy in the photo, watching the wheelie.

How'd they do that?

We have seen the pics. Now I want to know how to do that. I can wheelie on my mtn/road bicycles, but I don't know how to do it on my K1200GT. Please tell the easiest way so I can start practicing and maybe get in the pics at this year's DGR or BRPR.

If you know somebody knowledgeable in retouching, you can have your picture taken while you're standing up on your K....then you'll have one just like the one "bodybybuddha" posted....what a crock!
But if you want to really learn, there are a couple schools. One is http://www.ononewheel.com/
