hahah.

I'm still learning. All I do now is clutch it up a bit, while sitting, and let her back down. Just do a little bit every day after my tires are nice and warm.

I just turn on the whellie switch and the front wheel automatically comes up. its a gyro thing I INVENTED.

Auto Wheelie FTMFW

and whoever said clutch it up and catch it with the brake, and when u run outa tha gear shift up.... if ur at BP u aren't going to gain speed, there for no need to shift... now if some phag in a car wants to race i'll wheelie and shift and smoke his up on one.. but that's another story.


and u left my choice off....

CLAYTON likes to clutch it up, foot on 12 bar, and let go of the bars with both hands - see avatar for details, click sig pic for more details, come to the katy powerhouse church on sat. at 6 pm for a live demonstration
