Kudos to ME

For those that know me, I WAS a puss when it came to wheelies. I am no longer a virgin. I actually got the bike 3" off the ground. It's a start. Still cant lift the back yet!!!!!!!!!!!

wheelies are terrible b/c they're so addictive! Just use discretion when lifting the wheel...don't do them in close range of other cars/riders and make sure you have a full open view of the road to avoid trouble with the cops.

I dont mean to sound like a fun governor, but arent you just getting back into motorcycling? I think you should spend more time honing your skills on every day driving than wheelies right now.

Dont worry, safety is always my main priority. I have 2 kids that need me. After riding to Rec leasure with some of you I saw how high your wheelies were. Mine dont compare. It was just a little one on a road that is not busy with cars. Looking forward to the ride today.

all it takes is one second of not being in control to kill you or somebody else. Your best bet is to NOT do wheelies around other riders.

You Don't See Me Writing This

They most definitely are addicting....just start small and pick the right time and place.

Now...once you become comfortable with those....it's time to start the stoppie classes

I just hope none of my students see me doing them Or other instructors
