Anyone do highway wheelies?

I just moved to Houston and bought a bike. Does anyone know of any good roads to practice wheelies on? Straight, smooth, no cops, little traffic. I just found the balance point and want to practice. If anyone else wants to practice let me know. I have very little experience so I'm sure I could learn a few things from someone who knows what's up.

Go find a backroad somewhere. The highway is no place to ride wheelies, especially using it as a place to practice. Riding a wheelie on the highway doesn't make you look cool, it makes you look like an idiot.

Don't bend over in front of Newrider. While he may not be able to destroy anything he can sure chafe the out of it before you realize what's going on.

Check out PP1 on Weds nights.. you'll find plenty of like minded individuals to offer you some tips... maybe even show you some routes.

PP1 is the king dingaling of bad street riders. Rights to the throne can be challenged in an appropriate PP measuring contest.
