WHEELIE FAC­TOR

Fast Bikes - - CORE TEST -

The CB didn’t feel the most nat­u­ral bike on one wheel. De­spite the Honda’s mega smooth power de­liv­ery, a well-timed crack of the throt­tle would get the front wheel point­ing sky­ward but when in the air, I strug­gled to main­tain a steady alti­tude. It was a bit up and downy, as if the bike was a bit too short to of­fer a de­cent amount of sta­bil­ity. It did get eas­ier over time, but the twitch­i­ness never dis­ap­peared. Had I been bet­ter at pulling wheel­ies I may have loved it. But I’m not, so I didn’t.
