"flinging oneself backwards"

On the 50 quad, I either do that or shift to pull it up.

I think we need some new terminology for phifty wheelies. I mean, anything with the word "power" in it seems like an exaggeration, and most don't have clutches so. . .perhaps a pheelie? A phoolie? Those ain't workin'. Any suggestions?

well in my opinion ....

a power wheelie is sooooo easy too loop....

and by the time you get to balance point you already speeded up alot...

when you clutch it up and catch it wit the brake you have not sped up at all..the bike shoots up to balance point... and you can ride the wheelie at one speed instead of chasing it and running out the gear....

i'm not worried about getting close to the balance point... my busa would have to be near vertical to find it anyway. i'll stick with my power whoolies getting the tire 18" off the ground

I can do both standup and sitdowns with power got a litre bike got tired of tearing up clutches.

That's always fun to watch... I can't seem to do it for , but it is pretty wild. I'd say I prefer to ride one gear at BP, versus 2 or while 3 haulin' .
