just go like 20 or so and start giving more gas as you give more front brake and can even give a slight jerk on the front brake to take weight off of back tire to get it started but once you get it going just use enough front brake to keep the bike att he speed you want it and you can steer them and make them slide sideways, pretty fun

When I was learning I found it easier to wet the pavement in one spot roll over it and pull the brake alittle while still moving and let her rip. Got used to balance and control really quick.

I did a rollin one today. It was to easy on my R1. Thing is once it broke loose and started to roll I think I let the brake out a tad bit to much and she started fish tailing side to side. I didn't loose her though any tips?

okay you got lucky dude.. dont EVER do that.. I had my feet over the windsheild and was sitting on the tank and was spinning the back tire and hit a wet patch bcz of trees and it slipped out from under me.. didn't feel nice.. trust me.

people are talking about not using the clutch....how do you go about it?

just put enought weight on the front and use a little brake and give it gas and it will break loose or what?

Steer into it, kinda like a controled slide. Keep the RPM's down, but enough to keep it spinning. I personally use the clutch to get it going.....But I think it works eitehr way.....Deffinately a great way to kill a back tire or two getting it down good. I usually wait till I am ready to replace mine and then spend a few weeks working on this trick. The Guys on the videos make it look easy, but getting control of it is the KEY!!

From the Video's you are doing pretty good, I never start from a stand still, I slow to 5mph or so, and tap the front break and ease the clutch out and give it some gas to get her spinning and don't speed up much from there..... I usually do some circles try to learn the control part of it......Keeping the rear wheel spinning at a constant speed seems to help alot, and slow. I have tried it fast and its like riding with the back tire on ICE. I always stand up and lean over the front wheel.....But I also prefer stand-up wheelies....More control for taking curves and changing lanes.......Its just what you are comfortable with....... Nice Video!!

when i first started...notice the mild off/on squeezing of the front brake....

..and no helmet, boots, leathers..blah blah blah...:nopity:

you dont have to go fast at all, in fact you can start at a dead stop if u cruise along at 10 mph, then slowly squeeze front brake so it dips like said before so all weight shifts, then slip clutch out...and pray..lol

sory if repeating, didnt read other posts...
