Wheelie-ing Your Duc...
I was at a Bike Fest in Huntington Beach, Ca a couple of weeks ago and saw a couple guys wheelie-ing their 748's. One guy was able to get it up at a 10 o'clock position and do a one footer standup. My question is: How the hell do they do this? I can only get my Duc to go six inches at most.
Here's how i'm doing it and maybe one of you guys or girls can help--While rolling in 1st, Rev up to about 8-9 RPM and blip the throttle (instant on/off), and then i open up the throttle, the front wheel goes up a couple if inches and comes down again. This "one inch wheelie" lasts about two seconds. What am I doing wrong?
Also has anyone tried doing an endo on their Ducati? If so, please show me how!!
Sorry, don't mean to sound like such a newbie, but i've been riding motorcycles for awhile now and can hang in the canyons, but i really want to learn some trick riding for my own amusement.
