How do you know???
I've been futzin' around with pulling the front end up on my 1000RR. At this point I am most comfortable by "burping" the throttle in first gear at around 15-20mph. I've read and read and read about wheelies, watched the instructional videos and heard about 100 different opinions. At this point to me how you pull it up seems to be a matter of preferance/what you are most comfortable with.
Anyway, what I'm wondering is how do you know, or maybe the right question is do you know when you are at your balance point? I've been told that the point at which you feel like the bike is going to loop is the balance point, I've also been told it's just past that point, what I'm wondering is how do you know?
I've been pulling it up in first gear, covering the rear brake, trying to go thru a mental checklist and stay relaxed, when I can get it up and be smooth and steady on the gas I've been trying to bring it a little higher each time, but it still heads back to earth when I try to pull second gear in.
So, how do you know?
