OK, so I've been riding track and street for more than a decade. Love the speed and I can lean my bike all the way to the pegs but I've been a complete chicken when it comes to wheelies. Ya I've had the wheel come up a bunch of times but every time it does, panic jumps me. Funny thing is I can do it on my dirt bike all day and Im fine. But put me on the pavement and Im a mess. I think its time to get over it. Time to own the wheelie!

Who's got some good advice for me?

Keep your right foot on the rear brake pedal. :)
