Thank you for proving my point. And thanks for the other intelligent person for assuming because I have a hayabusa I ride the piss out of it. I do NOT ride my shit like I stole it nor have I ever been pulled over on one of my bikes. I'm not saying I have never sped on them, I just don't put everyone around me at the time's life at risk as well. Keep the assumptions coming, I always love a good laugh. If the OP is learning wheelies in a safe controlled environment then more power to him, but I will also be the first to call the police on a fellow biker I see riding a wheelie down the busy interstate at 90 mph and not lose a seconds sleep because you never know, the ticket he gets may save his life when another angry cager tries some vigilante shit like in Texas!

Now that I have this spare track bike that no one buying maybe I'll learn to wheelie too. No fuck that I'm scared. I'll just watch as other ppl do them. Lol

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow! What a Ride! ~Hunter S. Thompson

I think "rocking" the bike is a better, safer way to learn. Clutch ups are sketchy when ur learning and really not necessary in first gear. Go up to ten or 11 k, let off completely, and grab a handfull. Once u can get to the balance point you will be able to click second. I personally don't like clutch ups, but on a six hundred u kinda have to do them if u wanna do wheelies in any gear but first or maybe second

I call them power wheelies, I have done it before an don't like it. I feel that clutch ups come up in a much more controlled fashion.

People that mind their own business usually live longer than the one doing wheelies. For reals.

Start out in first gear, its easier to learn the feel of the clutch and when your tire starts coming up. Once you get used to that you only get better from there.

I feel like this quote was maybe the most helpful for most responses on here. That and the ones about learning in first gear slowly. And of course wear full gear at ALL TIMES!

Obviously you didn't read anything else in this thread. He's not a new rider... he's learning something new. Also.... how do you know he's doing it in fucking traffic? Haven't you read all of the responses asking him to make sure he's somewhere he can't cause any harm?

You must be new here. We're one of the most safety minded bunch of holligans you'll probably find on the interwebz when it comes to bikes. So get off of your soapboax and calm the phuck down.

You really are an angry person! Why all the hate? And also... maybe the guy was using this thing called "Sarcasm" in that statement. Happens a lot here.

You need to also realize that you're getting all pissy on a forum full of people you don't know isn't going to make anyone do what you want them to do. All you can do is make suggestions... nicely... and hope they heed your advice. People are going to do what they want to do with or without your opining from atop that pedestal.

I'm sure you're a saint on your bikes.... we all are So that's great for you that you've never gotten pulled over while on your bike. I've been pulled over countless times... and let off more times than I've been written up. So while I might agree with you that people doing wheelies at 90mph down a crowded freeway is FUCKING STUPID and makes the rest of us look like dicks... it's not your damn place to pound on your dashboard and call the cops on someone. Because honestly... depending on where you are... they won't do anything ANYWAY!!! Many cities have a "no chase" policy when it comes to bikes... because it's safer to let them go. Not only that.... where the phuck is this magic policeman going to come from while you doddle down the freeway making a call to the FBI??!??!!!?? He's doing NINETY!!! Let's see... in 45 seconds he's a mile away. I've never seen a cop show up for a traffic violation that didn't involve a drunk driver in less than 20 minutes.

But I'm sure they'll fire up the ol' helo when you make the call... just because they wanna catch that bad man on the motorbike.

You go dude! You GO!!

The feel good coming up, I let off the throttle just a tad and the front wheel returns to the ground without any hope of saving it. This leads me to believe I am nowhere near balance point and actually fairly low.
