    Teach Me How to Wheelie

    I thought this might be something fun for a group of us to do in a closed lot on a Saturday or something like that.

    No Stunters around here. Any wheelies that happen around here are normally on some back country road at 40+ mph.

    Second gear, cover the back brake, 25-40mph, clutch in-revs up-clutch out... you’re riding a wheelie!!!

    Clutch wheelies are always easier to control than power wheelies.
    Start small.
    Work your way up.
    Eventually you'll get to balance point wheelies.
    Then you crash.
    It'll hurt.
    You'll cry.
    You're bike will be broke.
    Your spirit will be broke.
    But you'll have done some cool wheelies.

    From a stop, hold clutch in, Turn throttle completely open, lean back, fully release the clutch. You will do a a wheelie and get to go bike shopping latter that day.

    I'm not slow just conservative.

    Buy an old dirt bike. Practice your technique on soft ground because you will crash a few times. The technique is the same for all two wheel wheelies ! Watch YouTube for how to vids.
