  • Dunno how long you've been working at this, but if you're having trouble with the oh- factor, spend some time just yanking it up and walking off the back. Get your mind to accept that you can do this if necessary.

Coupla questions:

Are you trying from a stop or while moving?

Are you trying to start with a sit-down (feet up on pegs) or are they on the ground?

Mostly trying while Im moving not really at a stop.

Feet on the pegs sitting down.

This demonstrates how much he gets the question...

Try at a stop with your feet on the ground and dragging. That's how I first learned.

I think ill take all my plastics off before I actually try one... Ive played around with it a lil bit without clutch just throttle rocking at around 8k RPMs in 1st but it dosnt come up more than a couple inches... Im pretty sure im pushing down on the front just out of instinct... How do I force myself to keep the weight on the back instead of leaning forward?

I assume your talking about a big bike.. That's more about throttle control and brake control as opposed to weight control.

Feet on pegs ! It makes you get used to that uneasy feeling when you have to control the bike back and forth. Feet down you dont get that feeling
