My first wheelie story urs?

We'll today I finally learned how to wheelie , I'm see you all remember when you it's first brought it up . Soon as it came down I yelled cheering so loud people were like wtf. It was funny. Anyways it's became real easy for me and I started doing more and more . About an hour later lone behold I got pulled over by a motorcycle cop I saw nowhere! He pulls me over and says u again?! He noticed me from when I let my friend borrow my bike the same cop pulled him over. As he had a suspended license he didn't impound the bike and let my friend call me to come and pick up my bike. All that being said he was a chill ass cop he said instead of citing me for excessive speed and wheelies and all the "accessories " on the bike he just said he's going to cut me another break and cite me with an unsafe start. And he's not going to arrest me or impound the bike. I said thank you he got on his bike. I was nice to him and explained to him I just learned and I was excited I understand it was dumb and a better place to do it would be a better idea but u know dumb kids get excited it was a first time thing . That's why I think he was chill. Anyways he got on his bike and he said dude il show u a real wheelie and rode off . What a chill ass cop we need more of these guys around. Anyways what kinda stories do you guys have like this any if at all? Also how much would this ticket cost vs hat he should have given me?

I never did a wheelie on purpose, never tried, but I've had a bunch of power wheelies happen, and they didn't startle or surprise me, always felt in control, so far didn't really feel the need to try and learn how to do them. If I had a spare stunt bike or something of the sort, I'd give it a go.

I couldn't ride a wheelie if I had to. Only wheelies I have ever done have been power wheelies and those were mostly on my 1000 and 1400. I can't even ride a wheelie on a bicycle.

I love a good wheelie! My ZX6R has traction control and I almost always keep it on to keep my front wheel down get caught riding a wheelie will most certainly get your bike impounded here in Houston!

My first one was on my old dirtbike well dual sport a 74 Honda CL125s I believe I started off by clutching up first it redlined so quick it would come back down then I learned how in 2nd gear clutch it up ride it till I ran out of room in the backyard and put it back down!

First wheelie on the street was my 05 FZ6 got the worst tank slapper when I set it down smashed my balls into the tank just wanted to cry did not wreck but took a long breather to regain my normal tone of voice and what not!

My CBR900RR was the best when I took it for a test drive the salesman at the dealer watched me go by the shop doing a staggered standup, when I came back he said you have to buy that bike now I said yep shes going home with me!

A bad day can be turned into a good day with a good wheelie! Even if its on a bicycle!

I Ride: my 03 zx6r real hard
Learned to wheelie on my dirt bikes growing up.
I test rode by 03 before I bought it and soon as I left the previous owners driveway I grabbed a handful of throttle in 1st and up she came it scared the shit outta me but I couldn't get enough so I took it home that day and tried more. Next thing I know Im doing 2nd gears and then staggered stand ups. Then I sacked up and figured out 3rd gear stand ups and its a whole new game. Any day instantly turns to the best day ever when you nail a sick wheelie. I always do atleast 3 every time I ride.

When in doubt, THROTTLE OUT!!!

my first wheelie was when i was doing a small drag race on my Ducati monster against my cousins 2002 r6 it was a bit scary but pretty awesome feeling, i haven't done one since i love my bikes too much to risk anything happening to them from popping a wheelie

The first wheelie I ever did was a complete accident. I had just picked up my CBR and was showing off the acceleration to a few lady friends. I ripped it wide open in first gear and the front came right up. Scared the bejesus out of me, but they were impressed and I played it off as intentional. Haha. Thank goodness for full face helmets.
