Popped My First Wheelie

  1. Yes I popped my first wheelie today by accident.

    Was at an intersection and decided to get across it quickly, i dropped the cluth and up she went, my honda VTR250, never thought it had the capacity to do it. FELT GOOD!!
  2. its ok if you pop a wheelie on a push bike cause you generally land on you feet if you overbalance it. dont think cause its only a 250 it wont summersault from under you, ive seen it happen. dont drop the clutch too hard mate
  3. Thanks for the advice, i wont go overboard, i do value my body, and legs for that matter.
  4. Viva la crap wheelie!

    I was wheelying a 2fiddy dirt bike the other day, some of those little bikes can come up no probs - I reckon the VT with a bit of a torque advantage over its 4cyl brothers would have a bit more hops.

    Anyway, here's me thrashin the 2fiddy:

  5. You working on those standups Loz?
