I have done about 5 wheelies since i began riding back this April.. all were 1st gear. And all were in the first week I began riding.
Why you ask? Cause I was with friends who were doin them and I wanted to do them too of course.
Now I can't muster up the courage to do them anymore. Never was scared shitless when I did them that 1st week, they were all nice high wheelies too. But I said to myself that week and ever since, I need to ride more to get comfortable before I try these again. But since I just stopped cold turkey like that, now i can't do them at all. I know how to do them, it's no problem for me to do them, but I just can't get myself to do it. Fear of messing up my ride is foremost in my mind. Now that I am completely comfortable with my bike, how should I ease myself back into trying them again?
I normally ride alone nowadays too, so it's just me.. no gotta impress the friends factor helping my balls out heh..
P.S. Oh andso this doesn't happen to you F3 guy, don't stop doing them cold turkey, it'll be much harder for you to do them once you are really ready. BUT don't do them on any streets, find a nice long empty parking lot to practice in, unless you really arent ready at all.
