"Little" wheelies are allowed in Race Mode. I did a few today in race mode.

I haven't touched anything. So I don't know if TC was on or not. I just know that when I popped 2nd, the front tire came up about 45-50 degrees at 98mph. Truly exhilarating!

Default Wheelies

Yes the HP4 has different wheelie settings when compared to an S 1000 RR. That's another cool difference on a long list of differences.

Scored on a custom ilmberger cf engine cover. Someone ordered it at the dealership and didnt want it when it came in. The piece was made for a race bike. Only thing was it had no place for the kickstand.

So I bought it of course and had my guy fix it up for me. Only thing I hate is my stickers are gone, now....smh!

The manual says "brief" wheelies are possible in Race mode before DTC sets it down. 50 yards goes by pretty "briefly" at 98 mph so, yeah, 50 yard wheelies should be doable. SO hoping it doesn't rain tomorrow.
