tHUG WHEELIE PROGRESS VIDEO THREAD . . . FROM BEGINNER TO BALANCE POINT ! ! ! . . .

wELL WHAT A MISLEADING TITLE AS I AM JUST GETTING STARTED

BUT I WILL POST MY VIDEOS AND PROGRESS FROM WHERE I AM NOW ALL THE WAY TO WHERE I AM RIDING BALANCE POINT WHEELIES AND LIVE UP TO THIS THREAD TITLE HOPEFULLY SOONER THAN LATER .. .

THE DISCLAIMER :

I CANT REALLY FIND A "CLOSED" PLACE OR "PRIVATE PROPERTY" TO PRACTICE HERE IN OMAHA . . . ALL OF THE INDUSTRIAL TYPE PLACES/STADIUM PARKING LOTS ETC. ETC. HAVE GATES AND SECURITY WHICH LEAVES ME JUST A COUPLE LONG STRAIGHT LEVEL PUBLIC ROADS WHICH I CAN PRACTICE ON ONLY IN ZERO TO VERY LOW TRAFFIC AND
* ONLY * IF I CAN ALLOW MYSELF ADEQUATE DISTANCE IN THE EVENT OF A MISHAP AS TO NOT HARM ANYONE ELSE OR THEIR PROPERTY.

AS FAR AS GEAR I FULLY UNDERSTAND THE RISKS.... AS I HAVE "BEEN DOWN" MORE THAN ONCE WITH ONLY A HELMET I.E. IN THIS VIDEO BELOW WHERE I TOTALED MY LAST NINJA I TOTALED A COUPLE YEARS AGO (AND I NO LONGER ATTEMPT TO RIDE WHEELIES IN NEIGHBORHOODS) AND I WEAR A HELMET 99.9% OF THE TIME I JUST HAPPENED TO BE GOIN AROUND THE BLOCK WHEN I WENT STR8 RETARD MODE.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qywyYaRQCGE

ANYWAYS A COUPLE YEARS LATER I AM BACK NOW WITH YET ANOTHER NINJA AND JUST TRYING TO GET STARTED AGAIN AND..... ? HERE WE GO

THE "STAGGERED STANCE" IS NEW TO ME AS I HAVE BEEN PRACTICING "SITDOWNS" MOSTLY UNTIL VERY RECENTLY... I AM A LITTLE BETTER/MORE COMFORTABLE THUS FAR IN THE SIT DOWN POSITION AS YOU CAN SEE THE BEST WHEELIE I RODE IN THIS VIDEO WAS @ 2:13 OF THIS VIDEO WHICH IS A SITDOWN AND PRETTY MUCH ABOUT THE BEST WHEELIE I CAN RIDE SO FAR I THINK ALL THE OTHER WHEELIE ATTEMPTS IN THIS VIDEO ARE STAGGERED STANCE . . . I JUST STARTED PRACTICING THE "STAGGERED STANCE" FOR STANDUPS ABOUT A WEEK AGO SO IT IS STILL A SCARY FEELING FOR ME TO HAVE THE BIKE "JUMP UP" ON ME WHILE I AM STANDING UP LIKE THAT !!!

MOST THESE WHEELIES ARE BEING POPPED UP AROUND 55 TO 60 MPH / 2ND GEAR CLUTCH UPS JUST FOR THE RECORD AND I AM RUNNING BOTH FRONT AND BACK TIRE AT 31 PSI JUST FOR THE RECORD ....I HEARD LOWER PSI WAS BETTER FOR WHEELIES BUT I AM TOO LAZY TO LOWER AND RAISE MY PRESSURE EVERY TIME I WANNA PRACTICE SO... EFF IT

HOPE YOU ENJOY ! GOD BLESS !

You really just shouldn't do it then. But that is none of my business... Good luck learning. I've never tried one.

tHANKYOU AO . . ..DO YOU HAVE ANY INTEREST IN TRYING ONE ? IT IS A PRETTY INTENSE/SCARY FEELING FOR ME AS OF NOW WHICH (FOR ME) IS AN AMAZING/FRUSTRATING FEELING AT THE SAME TIME ?

BEST WAY FOR ME TO EXPLAIN IT I LOVE THE EXCITED FEELING AND I WANT TO (AND WILL) OVERCOME MY FEAR !

I like to wheelie my dirt bike but I've never really tried it on my ZX10. I don't mind little power wheelies though. I'm afraid of doing damage to my forks and/or flipping over backwards. There's something about paying nearly $12 for a bike that makes me hesitant. Lol!! I get the attraction though.

Pork rinds are bad for you?

Corvus didn't happen so I got a liter bike.
