Then, if You like, You could go to 4:th and 5:th.
It is a bit cool to snap it upp with the throttle standing on the pegs in 5:th.....

What gear I use to stand the beast up? any gear except 1st. I went on a trail ride in september with a guy who is the "wheelie king" of his area from what I was told, he was pissed to see me come to his side at 65-70 mph, put my 426 straight up and pull away from his wheelying XR650.
Top speed with stock gearing is a little over 85.
On the ice I've been clocked at 97mph on a 1/2 mi oval track.

Third then shift, this brings you into a more controlled wheelie and allows you to menuver the bike through the gears.
Practice makes perfect, but I am not as good as I used to be, My Fat Ass keeps lidig off the back of the seat
Great for the hemi's

65 and accelerating on 1 wheel is awesome feeling!
I used to have an xr250 that was a wheelie machine but only at 25-35mph!
Now this beast is awsome and comfy at 60mph on one wheel.
U would be surprised how fast 1/4mile goes by!
13/49 sprockts 5th gear!

Any advice about how to get to the balance point and learn how to keep it there? Sometimes with good traction on a nice medium hill (dirt) I begin to feel 'the sweet spot' but ... oh well you get the point.
How many of you who claim to 'do it in your sleep' have looped out learning how??
It is addicting though...
