Stand Up Wheelies...again..

Any Tips? Figured out how to pull em up at, we will say, higher speeds and can ride them at well.. "fast enough" sitting down but I don't feel comfortable at any speed standing up? Tried staggering my left foot but I can't "feel" the bike come up till its pretty high. I would like to learn to ride them slower... Any tips? Would like to avoid wrecking.

seems that every thread i post in it gets deleted yay

im going to give you safe advice maybe this one will stay on here for motohouston support

dont wheelie, its a very bad bad thing, if you do, you should get caught and go to jail, and lose your bike for breaking the law in such a way

stand ups are scary because it is hard to hit the rear brake when all your weight is on the pegs u cant move your foot enough tho hit the brake so if u loop u are done for that is why people do staggerd so they can get the weight on the back foot and move the other foot and hit the brake incase they go too far back or to slow down a wheelie 100 plus mile an hour wheelies will get u no respect on this forum.

some may think its suicide some may think its fun,
i personally see 170mph in turns around houston often, but nothing like rolling a highspeed wheelie into or out of one, and ive hit 170 (indicated) on sit down wheelies, to each his own.
ill assure you that new model 1000cc bikes power will get the job done, if you know how to do/control it
i have calmed it down a bit since the pass, but riding slow gets old to me. i dunno maybe its bacaused i raced motocross for 8 years, and that aggression is put on the street/road race track now
as for busa owners being posers, i dont think they are posers, but i could careless for 90% of the riders on them, they think they are one the baddest bike alive, and then when they get beat by a 1000cc bike they go make some excuse up, aww i missed a gear

first and for most, im not here to satisfy your taste, i have my bikes for myself, not for other people, obviously you are here to try and impress other poeple
haha, whatever man, im sorry your addicted your one bike, i have had over 30 bikes since i have started riding, and i like many, im not stuck die hard on bike, because its a fact, new comes out and old gets old, simple
that zx10r you see there isn't even in my stable anymore, i have another, and plenty of other 1000,s and 600's
i could care less to have a busa, they aren't my cup of tea, glad that you are an extra hard core bad ! good deal, props to you.
