Default Using rear brake while wheelie-ing-ing

I know everyone likes to point out to cover the rear brake while performing a wheelie, or starting out. I know experts use the rear brake to control the wheelie while at the balance point.

My quesition: has anyone actually caught the bike a split second before looping the bike by using the rear brake? Were you able to do this while just starting out, or were you more experienced before you have the instinct to hit the rear brake?

In the beginning your normal reaction if you start to go over is prob to put your feet down, which is the wrong decision. That is why you should practice by always covering the rear brake, to form muscle memory so that when shtf you will respond correctly from instinct(hopefully). It seems awkward at first, but just keep practicing. I recomend setting all your wheelies down by applying rear brake instead of chopping throttle(if your in control, just to form the memory. So yes start doing it right away and always apply some beak at the end of any wheelie, even if itss a 6 inch pop up for two feet, just to get your body/mind trained to respond correctly in a loop situation!! good luck

thanks for the comment jab. I can power up in 1st, or clutch a wheelie in 1, 2, or 3, but balance point still is elusive. I usually get it in the air to as high as what feels safe then ride it out. I will take your advice.
