Pancake

So, its been awhile since I've been down, or had much to talk about.

But it happened, again.

Sunday, I was out on the country roads, riding wheelies with a few friends.

I pancaked, somehow. First I went left, then all the way right to the ground.

What I am wondering is...

1. How did all of this sudden I get thrown left
2. How did my reaction (or lack of) cause it to go right
3. How do you save it at that point?

I am not trolling, I ride a lot of wheelies and this is the first time I've had this happen.

I'm on mobile so can't really see.

You were up on the wheelie when it cut, correct?

Gust of wind? Rut in the road? Extreme change of throttle?

I would assume you overcorrected to the right.

I would assume like when regular riding and you have a tire slip, the less input you put on the bars and allowing the bike to "settle back in" will likely allow it to correct itself. For example, when you're going around a curve on 2 wheels and the rear tire slips, often people wind up highsiding because they panic or put an extreme input into the bars to try to correct it. Where if they don't do anything, the rear tire usually will regain traction and catch itself. It might jerk, but if you lift off the seat a little bit and let the bike do what its gunna do, it'll straighten out most of the time and if it doesn't, you're just basically a passenger at that point.

So I would assume it was your overcorrection that caused the bike to fall.

My best guess!

I think R&B nailed it. I have very little experience sitting on the back wheel but I have to assume that it requires a fair amount of focus...and that I can relate to.

Crashes happen when riding near the edge...I don't know if what you are doing qualifies (due to my lack of experience) but I *think* it would. The tiniest thing going wrong can just cause something bad to happen.

I couldn't see to analyze it good enough. sorry man just do what you can to learn from it even if it just to be more cautious. I'm sure we could all do that more.

Like slo said, I imagine it takes a lot of focus and smooth inputs. When you said you panicked, maybe that's all it took to go over the edge.
