Stand Up vs. Sit Down

OK. I have always done sit down wheelies and am decent at them now. I can get BP and hold for a good ways. But I have recently started trying standups. Just seems like a weird position to be on the bike, not too mention seems like bike comes up quicker/easier and completely changes BP?

When you guys do stand ups how do you position yourself? Maybe it's cause I am short but feels like the tank is in the way.

I like staggards and stand up's had to learn sitdowns. Sitting down you cant see infront of you.

I tried a staggard and that felt even weirder than a regular standup.

staggered may feel weird.....but it's the best way for standups imo. standin on both pegs you gotta lean back or else the BP is even higher than a sitdown.

if you stand staggered, BP will be a lil lower than sitdowns, just get used to them....it'll get easier.
