1st gear, blip and hold+modulate, try and balance it out. Warning 1st gear = very dangerous....
I could never wheelie, i just could not hold it up there, then a few months back, i just did it.
Now I can wheelie with the best of them. Its crazy, U can go for ages when you find the balance point.
Am learning how to stand up now.
i can pretty much do all the sit down tricks, I can even wave for a few seconds now.
I mastered rolling out endos, and I can do them really good now and very high.
Now I have pretty much mastered sit down wheelies.
I took so long to learn b/c i was fat. I'm super fit now and weigh a lot less, I also have quite a bit of upper body strength happening now, And also My bike has gone through some mild upgrades in performance, so maybe these things have a part to play in the equation overall, but seriously take your time when learning and then one day, it just happens. for me I lost fear in what i was doing, I lost it because I lost someone very important to me. i dont have a death wish but now I am very fast and pretty good at stunts I thought I could never do.
I cant stop wheelieing, its like a wonderful drug I have found...
Have also been playing around with 12'oclocks, very freaky i gotta say, a few times I have gone past 12 but kept it up and going, this is basically sitting down btw, a little off the seat.
Its only really been in the last few days I have started going to 12 and above. I'm taking it slow, Im in no rush to drop my bike.
Yes, There is more to life when you can wheelie good.
