Popped My 1st Wheelie!

was pretty dam scary.

I watched a bunch of vids on utube for several weeks and finally got the to try today (in an empty parking lot of course)

Took me like 50 tries but the very 1st time i got it up it was a good 1-2ft of the ground and lasted for just a couple seconds (traveled around 10ft). What a feeling! Got it up a couple times after that but only a few inches.

Got a lot more practicing to do!

Ohhhhhhh....shut. the . . Up old man.


Dude was in a parking lot...

How will this keep him safe in the street? Boom got.

Say he is at a stop light and a car is coming, rev, pop clutch and bam his out of there and safe. Now drink your glass of milk and go to bed.

Knowing how to wheelie can be good. For example as newrider posted needing to get out of trouble. And also if one accidentally pulls a wheelie he knows how to safely control the wheelie and bike once the front end is up. No harm popping up the bike a few inches on an empty roadway either. Our bikes have lots of power and being able to unleash it sometimes is fun as long as its safe.

Popping a wheelie in a city street with lots of traffic = dumbass

Popping a wheelie way ahead of some friends on a cool morning or afternoon= just having some fun

nothing wrong with wheelies in their place. No riding is completely safe, all has a certain risk, so do what you can to cut down that risk and have a good time.
Wheelies are not my thing, i have not done them on purpose in 42 years but there was a time i enjoyed them. Now the ones i do are mistakes one the starting line.
