it feels hella weird cause your all up on the handle bars, and they sit lower than other bikes, a cramped feelin'.... but once your up in a wheelie, and I mean up there at the sweet spot aka balance point, otherwise your just gonna pic up hella speed with a wack lookin' low ass wheelie... hehehe

Gives me a rush, I dont have a stunt tank so I often bust my nuts. I have landed alot of them and becouse I'm so far forward its hard to throttle it correctly on the landing, and I feel like I'm gonna go over the bars.

ALL & ALL probably the most fun wheelie for me though

start with on your tank with your knees squeezing the tank hard.. power up 1st (or clutch 2nd). do that untill you get use to being up there, then work on extending your legs into a spreader.

beware, you might slid backwards off the tank if you're not far enough forward too.. so be prepared. i knocked my knee/shin HARD on my sliders a few times lol

yeah, one of my favorites too. i like to clutch it in 2nd cause its less touchy. i just make sure to hold myself down tight with my arms otherwise i slide back onto my seat.
