on my 636, I role at about 30-40 mph. The bike revs somewhere around 5500+ rpm in second gear. I pop the clutch and stay on the gas, only slightly backing off when it gets up there, but still stay on it mostly. The only thing stopping me then is a turn, red light, and maybe a cop. I don't always use the rear brake, although I should. I do always have it covered in case I get too high. When i need to use it, I naturally continue using it. Just use it as an eject button right now to save your back.
Power Wheelies HURT, the clutch is way more efficient, consistent, and controllable than powering it up. 1st gear wheelies suck too. You can't ride em' out, and it's way too torque-y to be as safe as 2nd gear whoolies. In my opinion of course.
