Drunk drivers have to be convicted 2 or 3 times to see that kind of time. The idea that a wheelie on a public street garners more severe punishment than drunk dirivng is asinine.

Well I tried turning when I am hard on the brakes and the rear tire is in the air, no good.

And when I come out of the turn and the front wheel comes up it tends to go straight, whichever way it was pointed..... maybe if I get some tire spin on the rear when the front comes up I can muscle it around....

I'll holler when I get my helmet cam back, and you can prove it.

Doesn't count if you touch down at any point in the curves, or leave your own lane...

more counter steer when the wheel comes up, and pull your off more (kinda like when you put one cheek on to take that corner) but lean more. it'll go.

When? On the brakes or coming out still leaned over?

See.. try to countersteer on the brakes with the rear in the air, and all you'll do is kick the rear of the bike around, or wash out the front.

Countersteering in the other example, with the front in the air, has zero effect. Makes for a neat crossup or tank slapper if you don't get it straight again.

Well, then I'll give you a wide berth and let me know when you are out so I can stay home. If you can't stay in your own lane, then you need more practice or slow down.

i bolded the part about coming out of the corner. and when you counter steer mid wheelie you are pulling the bike..

example.

i'm making a left hand turn.
i'm leaning left.
right cheek is the only thing on the seat, my left cheek is hanging off.
i come out of the corner most of the way, and twist the throttle all the way around.
front wheel comes up.

**at this moment your weight is on 1, the pegs, 2, the seat, 3 clip ons. **

now if i COUNTER STEER more (turning to the right for this exercise) and shift my weight more... more weight on the left peg (scooting over more, less weight on the seat) and pull on the right (throttle clipon) then it will pull the bike over more and allow you to keep turning.

so when you wheelie and turn going fast, your weight is on your inside (direction you are turning) peg, and your outside (direction you are not turning) clipon.

make sense?

standing up on the bike doing a wheelie i can see alot farther around the corner, and i'd rather be on the inside line when i go around those particular corners. that way if i do have to set it down i have some room to do so before i run off the road.

Sure. Doesn't work if you are already hung off, at a good lean, and get back on the power a bit early. I can muscle it back on the line I want like you say, but it is more pulling the bike over in the direction I want to go, versus countersteering the front wheel.

And sshhhhh don't give away all the peg weighting secrets... never know whos watching!
