50 - How far can I go! (pics occassionally)

Ok....so I am going to start my own little thread chronicling my growth with this 50. I want to see how good I can get on this or IF I am even capable!

I'll start with pics today. This was my 3rd time practicing.

start from a mild roll and keep your feet on the pegs

its better to learn that way than feet down because you wont have your feet down once u get the hang out it. better to practice how you will really ride

That's what I was hoping I would get out of this thread. Some advice. I am taking it all. The reason my feet are down is because that is what I was told.

Should I start with a mild roll and learn in 1st?

Yeah i always thought feet on pegs was the best ! You should stop by javi's & get some pirrelli's better for street & wheelies . Oh and no matter what other people say i think shortly after you learn the basic's of wheelies invest in a rear handbrake kit , later you can perfect the foot brake (thats what i did ). I ride a 50 too i might not have alot of tricks but i can do some solid 50ft wheelies .

I have a rear street tire I need to put on. I def. need the rear handbrake kit. I bent the foot brake today. I'll holler at Javi about a front tire. What side of town is he on?

the rear street tire will help your side to side wobbles A TON

ill repeat ... REAR HANDBRAKE ISNT NEEDED FOR LEARNING ... bend your foot brake out enough to make sure your right foot is always covering it

start rolling with feet on pegs to the point the bike doesnt side to side wobble , thats when you gas/pull ... when you pull be sure to lean STRAIGHT back ... if you tug one want more you will feel the bars goto that side more ...

fat joe said it the best ... "lean back"

first gear

people will say "oh 1st gear is too short blah blah blah , i run out of rpms"

its because your nowhere near balance point .... ya 2nd gear seems like its easier and your going further on your wheelies but its b/c the faster your going the lower your bp

when you learn the high bp in first and brake control 2nd gear will be cake

remember .. if your in first and you yank it and instantly pull up the bike and start walking with it your starting off WAY too slow

you want to start at the low end of the rpms where there is still enough torque to pull it up and get it to bp or close are fast as possible
