It just takes some getting used to. If your learning standups, try staggered. Left foot rear peg, right foot front covering the rear brake. Its a better body position, and more comfortable with the rear brake. Make a habbit of taping the rear brake just real quick before every wheelie. That way you never forget to cover the rear brake. It will save your ass more than once. Also make sure when the front end comes down, open the throttle up so it comes down soft, and make sure the wheel is completly straight. Tank slappers are no joke.
