That happens because there is less of a gyro effect on the wheel so it's a little bit harder to keep perfectly straight. Use your knees and shift your weight a bit and counter balance it. On some windy days, I've had to fight it to keep it straight, but it kind of makes it interesting.

And if you are having to fight it and steer it, make sure when you come down you straighten that wheel... 'snot pretty if ya don't! (I learned the hard way, so I'm passing that on!)

Thanks alot. When your wheel came down sideways did you go into a tank slapper?

I wheelied the other day for the first time in awhile. It was cute.

I always roll at like 10mph and dump the clutch at like.. 10-11,000 rpms. But don't do that on a 600!

Yes I did! So violently, that the bars ripped out of my hands and I ended up laying on the tank. But as soon as my hands came off the bars, it straightened right up! Only on myself a little.

thats what we need. someone to think their 600 doesnt have the power to pop up. Trust me, that thing will loop faster than you can take your hands off the clip ons to try to catch yourself when you fall.

dude, a 600 has way more power than you think, you just don't know how to apply it correctly.

practice makes perfect....get with mr. unassailable (clayton) or any of the other big bike stunters, they can show you the jedi ways of stuntin.

i'm no stunter, and i can pop a wheelie up on a 600 anytime of day. and you've only ridden for 8 months....so i'd get to know your bike a little more before trying to go out on it. you may think you know.....but you don't.
