  2. This forums could always use more wheelies.

    I suck, no consistency. Sometimes I can get it up ok and keep it going for a few seconds, other times I just look like a retard.

  3. I'm more the other way and just generally look retarded. Such panache!

  4. Don`t be scared , flick that clutch a bit to lift it up while in motion(it will either fishtail or lift)
    Pull the cycle up while leaning into it pulling your head to the side of the bike to see past the tank/front of bike .Foot over the back brake ,front will drop like a stone if you press it.

    Im so gonna try to stand the beemer now

  5. Yeah I only just started doing them cause burnouts are boring now XD

    Next time I will perfect them and go for a longer distance :D only has 30 mins and I was riding the track the other 25 mins.

    lol! I shat myself I did it by accident! but then I got addicted to trying to keep it up as long as possible. The neighbours didn't like it XD

  16. Man dirt bikes are the best to learn wheelies on. I'd never done a deliberate wheelie on a road bike, I rode a dirt bike for the first time. After about 30 mins my mate who owns the bike yells out "do a wheelie". It was an old KX125, I was accelerating with medium throttle, gave the clutch a fan and straight up and carried it a bit. I was doing them all day. That gave me the confidence to try on my road bike. I can wheelie on cue but I'm a long way from being good at it. I'd love to get back on a dirty to try and hone my skills one day.

    You'll be able to pull a decent mono on any bike with practice. A mate of mine used to be able to mono his 175 ag bike all around his back yard......but he was a smart arse.
    You'll find that if you try it at a little bit higher speed you will be in a better torque range and a gentle pull on the bars will get it up easily. Just work out what revs give you the best acceleration and you'll be fine. Once you find the balance point you can hold it for a fair way, too far and you'll end up in a plaster cast :oops:

    For inspiration, have a look at a few of the boys pulling mono's on the hogs.

  18. They are better then you think ,On the dairy we would set all 3 ag bikes up ,And do toe draggers down a very long dirt road (competition) but only when the boss was away

    edit

    That Harley guy can really ride that thing

    Check out all the Quickfix vids, those guys are awesome. Unfortunately the bloke doing the mono on the Streetbob had an altercation with a kangaroo a little while ago and ended up with a busted leg.

    Another good one here.
