The Art of the Wheelie - Wheelieing off Jumps

Miscellaneous Motocross Riding Technique
The Art of the Wheelie - Wheelieing off Jumps This technique is similar to the previous technique of carrying the front wheel over an obstacle. When you hit a jump with both wheels, you are going to go higher and further than if you had wheelied over it. Of course, this technique can only be used in certain situations and on certain kinds of jumps (usually from slower speeds and more rounded jumps). You can’t do it on higher speed, steep jumps or you’ll endo quicker than you could leave chili in your shorts. You may find yourself in the middle of next week before you knew what happened. But in the correct situation, this technique is a big time saver.

The art of wheelieing is more than just cool. It’s also faster and if that front end gets up there too high by mistake, you’ll know how to handle it (assuming you’ve read my previous nine tips of this series.
