I think that's me you're talking about :D

Watch that video... look at when I bring it up in 6th.. you'll see that I bounce it up. Also can I let you know that i stood up.

Try to .. lean backwards more and more and do the snap of the throttle. Lean backwards slowly.. and then just bounce it.. with both feets at the same time as you snap the throttle (on and off).. and up she'll come.

But dude, you got to be careful on the R1 about this.. don't attempt that in 1st gear.. not even in 2nd.. it might just come up too fast.

Next season I will know what the R1 can do.

Oh btw, when I wheelied in 6th on the RR '93 I didn't use any clutch. You shouldn't either.

That's way out there...:eek: but at what point in the wheelie do you stop cranking the throttle??? The last thing I want to do w/ my new R1 is flip it on it's back...I mean hell, my injuries can heal right>>> Yeah...My Katana750 is a hog, I couldn't get the front wheel 2ft off the ground to save my life!!

I kind of hit it hard I was wheeling yesterday and I was going like 25 or so and I started romping on it and it would come up smoth and i get it pretty high for me so thats the way I do it in first you just have to practice little bye little and you will eventually get it I dont have to much experience at all I've only been riding for like three to four months all I can realy say is be carefull and don't push it to much especially if you dont feel comftable
