How do YOU wheelie?

I'm curious to know how most prefer to ride their wheelies. Doesn't matter what kind of bike it's one (street, dirt, quad, 50, etc.) And save the bandwagon rhetoric for someone else. I don't care if you do it on the track, a lot, closed road, farm road, where ever, that's your deal. I just want to know your preferred method.

power up wheelies can get you in trouble.......especially when it gets near balance point....it is not predictable, and very easy to loop

if you owned a Kami, it would wheelie when you thought about doing a wheelie!! i usually just roll on the throttle in 1st and she comes right up or, in 2nd and 3rd i will whack the throttle at a high RPM and away she goes, down the track on one wheel.

Are wheelies frowned upon at the track?

yeah....i see a lot of videos of people doing a power wheelie in first.....most of them end up looping in less than a second of the wheel coming up.

Well isn't that what everyone means when they say "take it to the track" all the time?

I'm assuming I fall into the "power up" category since there's no clutch on Fuglee. . .that's essentially "accelerating while flinging oneself backwards and yanking on the bars," right?
