Rode a 97mph beginner wheelie today !!!! :)

Most yall know i been practicing wheelies for like a year now im not an every day rider but when i do ride i practice here and there.

I practice clutchin up in 1st around 40 mph. And then last couple mths. Started clutchin up in 2nd gear at 60 mph. But it was a little scary learning coming up at 60 with no helmet..

Anyway's i tried power wheelies for the first time 2 mths ago and posted some vids... (of my second day practicing)

i kinda went back to practicing clutch ups shortly after though cuz i was more familiar and comfortable with them..

I been obsessing lately though about being "stuck" where im at as far as my progress and even started a balance point thread today...just tryin to figure out what i could do to progress or find out how far i was from the balance point to try and motivate myself etc.

My progress.... Last time i really practiced a few weeks back i was honestly pretty "buzzed" and 95 percent of the time i dont ride in that condition...but i did and had alot more nerve and that is where my progress really 'started' i noticed i could ride my wheelies out a little further than normal ( which is not really far)...

But my experience has been as i have been learning that whatever point i get to i can always make it back to that point pretty easy..

Which brings me to today

i decided around noon to take my bike out in the cold.... For some reason i thought i would practice some power wheelies again since i gave up on them shortly after learning them and im just stuck on clutch ups !

Well holy shit since i got to that "new point" while buzzed awhile back i made it to that point and beyond with the power wheelie today and i was trippin out and excited as hell !!!!! I rode my longest wheelie ever !!!!! And was practically yelling out loud it was such a frickin rush and i was finally "unstuck" !

Anyways i went from like probably my usual 40 ft wheelie to like 200 to 300 feet power wheelieng ! So far that i was now hitting the redline in first gear while up in the wheelie ...i could obviously hear the bike rappin out and a light came on (shift light?)..so i dropped it down quick at that point..

So i went back to clutch ups in 2nd gear but instead of clutchin up at 60mph like i have been i started clutching up at 40-45 mph instead and fluippinn wah-lah i was able to ride those out in 2nd all the way until the redline (97mph)...

So i had to tell someone i am really excited and if its nice the next few days i will make some video's !

I just dont want the video threads to turn into gear/no gear arguing or bashing

i am anxious to see myself though on video and get some opinions on how close i am to balance point etc. Or if i am just chasing the hell out of the front tire ?

I honestly cant tell until in see myself on video how high i actually am even up there i just know i can go (for me) a really long ways now !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Im obviously chasing it though if im out of rpms in 2nd gear...

I need to figure out how to be able to ride farther wheelies ( not running out of rpm's in 2nd)

i dont mind trying faster wheelies in third gear but will wait for a helmet before i even attempt that *( and yes i already know what im doing now is just as dangerous)

taking the kids to the ymca and then hip hop dance practice

peace out..... And being off dope is gooooooooooood !!!!

And this made me smile bigger than your learning to ride a wheelie in 2nd. Bra-fuckin'-VO man!

It'll be a battle you'll never stop fighting... so just keep in mind the way you're feeling now.

Congrats on the life choice changes as well as your wheelie break through but ya got to get a lid even if its used. It would suck to drool on yourself for the rest of your life because of a 25 mph off. With out a lid the difference between the damaged suffered at a crash of 25 or a crash at 100 is just luck.

a good tip to know if your just "chasing wheelies out" is if your slamming the throttle just to keep the wheel up and its still gradually falling. Riding one out means your gonna be able to let off the throttle some and still keep it up, hence balance, if you really wanna know what balance point feels like, bust out a trick bike and yank the front wheel up and try and balance it and you'll get the concept feel of what your body will feel like when balancing. Took me months to get comfortable doing wheelies, but i didnt do 1st gear since my +7 rear leaves me such a shallow gear and by the time i have it up, i gotta put her down, but 2nd gear clutch ups are smooth and fun and were much easier for me to learn b/c of the lack of 1st gear violence associated with trying to power wheelie. I've ordered stock sprockets now though, so it will be interesting relearning when to pop that clutch now

P.S. Enjoy the rush of gradually getting higher and higher, its the same rush i got when on roller coasters but it goes away as soon as you know how/are comfortable with doing wheelies. So the journey is truly better than the destination when it comes to this IMHO

Thankx for all the concern about the helmet its nice to know yall care,

thanx also on the props for stayin off the dope and the wheelie advice

i knew i was gonna catch alot of heat about no helmet but wanted to post anyways cuz i was just excited..

I recieved a private message today though from a member offering me a free black helmet with a chrome face shield which would fit me and match my bike perfectly

and they did not do that on the thread but privately ...how humble is that ?

God is good !
