Ouch. Good to see you still have the ability to type on a computer though. High speed lay downs usually don't end up too well

Yea pavement isn't the goal here Just make sure you are wearing your gear. If you have a problem with getting it in the air (better than saying getting it up) try to scoot back on the seat. Just be sure you're covering the rear brake in case you come too far back. On the way back down, you want to give it throttle so that the front end comes down smoothly. If you smash the rear brake or just drop the throttle, it wont be good on your forks nor your jewels. Could also throw you over the bars. Its best to practice in a parking lot or somewhere open with no traffic and just take your time. If you have the common knowledge of how to ride a bike and the simplest understanding of physics, you shouldn't have a problem. Practice getting your throttle control and the feeling of the front wheel lifting, even if its a couple inches. You can worry about your balance point after you get the basics down. Sounds funny, but there are actually a few nice videos on wheelies on youtube. You could use those for visual aid

thanks for all the info. i have the concept of using the rear break but just haven't tried to do anything on the bike yet. bout to start practicing a little before it get too cold and start up again when it gets warm again.

Speaking of cold weather, make sure your tires are warm if you are doing clutch-ups. If not you could end up with a squirly, one wheeled rolling burnout

Yeah the paramedic said I was lucky and stupid. I slid down the road quite a way and was fortunate enough not to cross over to the side with oncomin traffic. Never thought much till I met someone who had a crash at 60mph (slower than me) and he wasn't lucky. Sorta thing where he had his guts removed to put his spine back together. Made me re-evaluate.

Always wear your gear and look out for stupid drivers (usually o.a.p) gettin ready to pull out in front of you.

Ya start with a sit down first. Stand up's are a little harder to start out on after you get good at a sit down it makes stand ups that much E Zer.


Have you'll checked out my other videos on youtube? you can find them on the same link....

I'm older now and maybe more wiser, and possibly lack confidence to do shit, being honest about it.

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaahaha, dude you are the man! i had the best mental picture of what happen to you while i was reading your story i wish i could have been there.

haha more commen sence then anything but guys when your learning to wheelie.. and you get scared please please please pleeeeaaasssee keep your feet on the footpegs.. stay on the bike!! cover the brake if thats how you learned to wheelie but keep ur feet on unless you wanna run after your bike as it flips down the road shattering into a million and 2 pieces =)... went riding with a newbie and didnt know it.. i started a 2nd gear clutch up and this jackass pulls one up next to me takes his feet off. ( at first it looked as if he ment to do it ) he not only 12'd his bike, it flipped at least 3 times PAST ME as im putting my wheelie down with my asshole puckered up. needless to say he totaled his bike. and come to find out he was trying his first wheelie. didnt have a clue what to do. so please!! if your learning take it somewhere you can fall and not hurt anyone but urself and cover that brake!!! and keep ur feet on.. it may save ur bike.. act like its motogp and never fuckin let go!!! you never know you may ride away instead of walk away.

I guess I'm weird, because I always found stand ups easier than sit downs.

im the same way.. you dont need as much rpm to lift the wheel either..especially if you use the rear pegs or rear seat.. i wanna learn tank wheelies! agghh its killin me.. i sit on the tank and pop the clutch all the time but im scared to actually try a wheelie with it.. while i dont use the rear brake for balancing em out. i do use it if i get too far up on a wheelie.
