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 hno+1 I did that back in the day when I was stupid enough not to wear a jacket two weeks after I had just finished restoring my bike. The cranckcase cover was the last bit to go on, and when she had stopped slidin down the road it had a fat hole in it. Now that hurt. Wish it was 20mph
Yea pavement isn't the goal here :lol 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 aidsounds good....not hitting the pavement, but trying sitting first.
