First Wheelie

Finally clutched my first wheelie. Dropped the front a little adruply. Smacked my nuts on the tank. They still hurt today.

haha, I did the same. Don't try a stoppie yet. You'll be nervous as hell and you'll end up slidding into your tank. Nuts will disappear and hurt. yikes

Best thing for a wheelie is to be as far back in the seat as possible and don't feather the clutch. That just wears the clutch down.

If I don't feather it, the wheel stays on the ground. I don't even know if I will try another one. It kind of scared me. If I were to dump the bike I would be fucked. I am trying to sell it(no full coverage).

what would scare you is when you try to jump speed bumps. I finally gotten used to it now, but the first time when my rear tire landed, is squirmed around.

I need to get a 12 bar on my bike. I've shit myself a few times this week doing wheelies at like 80 degrees.

12' oclock bar will not save you from going over. It will make things worse.

Maybe you shouldn't be playing around then.


My bike is crunchy as hell and I laugh about it. I was prepared for damages to happen if I played around on it.
