Wheelie

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' at netrider.net.au started by aste9974, Nov 20, 2011.

  1. Ok today I foolishly decided to try a wheelie in a quiet back street.



    So I was rolling in 1st gear, clutch in, I revved it near the red line, then dropped the clutch.

    I had all my weight on the pillion pegs, and I compressed the front forks to help bounce me up in the wheelie position.

    However once the front popped up and I was in the redline, I slipped off the pillion pegs, only holding on to the handlebars.

    Since I was being dragged rather than riding the bike, I over balanced to the left then right, narrowly missing parked mercedes benz and other expensive cars, and somehow I managed to straighten up just as I ran out of power in 1st gear for the speed I was going.

    This could of ended as me spending craploads of bodywork on mercs, a totalled bike, and serious injury to myself, but somehow I got out of all those scuff free, once I was back on 2 wheels I crawled up onto the seat again while moving, then went home.

    I guess I'm a professional squid.:squid:

  4. ha ah I woulda luv'd to have seen it.
    If your going to wheelie keep your feet on the front pegs and cover the rear brake.
    I use a mixture of throttle and rear brake to keep the nose where I want it.
    And your going to run out of first gear pretty Quick trying to wheelie in it. Second will smooth things out.
