Rode my first wheelie but,

I finally got the front to stay up for about three average house lenghts. My first real wheelie! But would any of ya'll stunters out there know why my rear kept on wanting to pull to right? Every time my rear wheel dragged to the right and my front tire would land crooked to the left. Thank god for my steering damper. Anyway, could this be an alignment thing? Also, just for the record, I just put a brand new Metzler Sport Tech on the rear yesterday. So I was basically scrubbing the new tire so I don't slip on my turns. Maybe the rear was slidding because it is a new tire. What do ya'll think?

your rear end could be alittle out of alignment, and you could not realize your leanin to the right, I do that sometimes, and like said before, the road could easily be crowned!
