-Marco, I got really good control over my bike, I feel really comfortable with it and i know its power really well,I even took the MSF classes from TEAM Arizona and they hooked me up with some track passes from AZ Trackdays And I was keeping up with all the other riders that were going like 130 and chopping up the corners , Ask Nick....I can ride hard and safe with control....... P.S. Wheelie Help?

Don`t get too confident, as soon as you do, prepare to slide down the road. After that, check out the stunting forum this question is about as redundent as "which bike for a newbie?"

Look . . . the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances, we guard you while you sleep. Do not fu|< with us.

I think I may agree with others here. You claim you are real familiar with the power of the R6. You claim you are in control. If this is totaly true, you should have little trouble with the wheelie. The R6 is an easy bike to wheelie. There is no real trick to it.

I am not trying to slam you, I am just trying to help you realize how much experience you really have. I like to see riders stick around for awhile.

to wheelie your bike all you gotta do is get in your powerband then roll off throttle then back on in a fluent motion..when you roll back on you gotta whip it...at first your natural instincts won't let you give it enough gas to bring it up just keep on doin' it over and over and eventuly(sp) it'll come up...only took me a day on my FIRST BIKE...i'm not sayin' i'm a badass but it can be doon depending on the rider.
