Hey all,
Just had to post it, its not my first wheelie but its the first time some one took a photo of me doing one.
I have had this bike now for 3 months and could only just pop the front up when I first got it....
And now

Now all you gotta do is get used to riding wheelies at the balance point then you can ride A wheelie for miles until your arms get so tired you cant hold on anymore. I love it. :thumbsup: I go through tires so fast cause I cant resist riding wheelies on the street.

I can feel it im so close to the balance point, its just teasing me. :thumbsup:
I had a go at stand up wheelies, but they just feel to wierd, and feels like i have to hold the bike up with my arms

Try clamping the bike with your knees when you stand up.

Ride fast - take chances.

nice... now you gotta take that thing in the outback and loft it up in 5th gear.. its fun... just jump on handlebars and yank back with a handful of throttle... once you get on the balance point you can keep it there forever... as for the standup wheelies i like to relax my arms, not flex them and keep my back straight and stand up high keeping my back in a straight line with the axle or over the back fender... just make sure you got that right foot on the back pedal.. and oh yeah dont do this on a 2stroke or youll be running at 60 mph before you know it :thumbsup: :devil:
