Wheelie questions? Hook me up with info !!!!!!!

I've been riding for about a year, tried doing wheelies and I've managed to pick it up about 2 feet clutching it up, but that's the highest I've ever got it. Ive practiced all my wheelies sitting down and the reason I haven't picked up higher than 2 feet is because I feel like imma loop that since my body is at an angle rather than standing up looking over my handle bars. My question is, is it better to practice stand up wheelies rather sitting wheelies?

you should call your insurance provider and let them know first and then when they drop you sell me your bike at a quarter of its blue book value and get a dirt bike and wheelie that all over but make sure you put baseball cards in the spokes for extra hp gains

Typical mh. People who have no clue about wheelies giving smart advice. There is some good info in here about the 50. However if your honestly asking this question then you honestly won't know good advice from bad advice.

For sitdowns, if you can see over the front you still have plenty of room to go

My advice. Try both. Some are more comfortable with sit downs and vise versa. Remember to wear your gear. Try it in a safe parking lot or back road. Have someone there work you just in case. And always cover your back break. You only need to lightly tap it. Have fun be safe and don't expect to be killing it off the bat. Four Wheelers work too. Jmo
