The key is finding the correct speed where to start it. There is a sweet spot out there that you only you can discover. When you get there - pull in the clutch and twist the throttle to the rev limiter, snap the clutch out and stand up.
I prefer 4th then shift up.

Hey W...I have an idea. If it's cool that you want, go get a video of Valentino Rossi doing a mile long 60 degree one handed wheelie at 180 mph while saluting the crowd. THAT'S cool! And you can watch it from the safety and comfort of your favorite chair. Just a thought.
