I was told the Z wheelie's very easily, but riding at home at 9000 ft plus, I can't get the front wheel off the ground. I took the bike to about 5000 ft and noticed I could get the wheel off in first if I hammered it. So at sea level, does this bike wheelie like crazy? FYI for anyone coming up to the mountains to ride, you loose about 30% HP.

9,000 feet, holy schmoley! Last year I took a vacation to Big Bear, Ca....who's nominal altitude is 7,000ft. I was in PAIN for the first few days. Heart racing, veins popping, adrenaline surging.... Granted, my family and I left SoCal in the early 90's for Florida's vast sea-leveledness; so I'm nowhere near acclimated. I can only imagine nine-thousand feet would kill me!

My bike would prolly live though.
