How to do stand-up wheelies
Well...now that we have this section, guess I better start using it.
I'm currently working on 2nd gear stand-ups. I have found the fountain of adrenaline...
Problem is I can't keep it. I think what I do is while maintaining the balance, I'll give a little too much gas. This causes me to roll off a bit. But I'll roll off a little too much and have to gas it again to come back to the balance point. This is what is causing me to speed up. I know what the problem is, it's just a matter of practice and getting better throttle control. Making more minute adjustments to stop me from speeding up during the wheelie.
I think once I can control this, I'll be able to break the 1 mile barrier, which is my goal right now. I'm probably doing about 1/4 to 1/2 mile stand-ups right now. I want to keep my speed around 80mph indicated. Once I start getting above 85 my rear wheel wants to dance around. If can keep that balance point, then I should be able to control the speed, thus have a controlled stand-up w/ minimal back wheel two-stepping.
Share your thoughts. Any tips are welcome. Can you wheelie for a mile+? Let's see some video.
