tank help and road long wheelie

Whatís up people just wanted to let everybody know i road out my 1rst very long stand up today actually a few of them.....i kept it at about 40-50,ph the whole time for around 3/4 of a mile or so would of been longer but I couldnít control the wobble.... I know most wont care a whole lot I mean its just a dumb wheelie but I was pretty stoked about it just that i would let every body know....

Also i need some help I started practicing tank wheelies today but im having some problems how do yall get them up i mean are you just clutching and praying or is there some techniques. Also coming back down a few times today when i got the wheel up a little bit and I let of I nearly flew over the bars how do i brace my self so this isnít such a huge problem......

Thankx guys

you could dent in your tank so your dosent slip off. and you could also change your gearning a little bit. but i doubt you want to do that with a 20th anniversery gsxr.

well i have a bone stock 04 750 and tank wheelies can definately be done... i learned them by popping it up in a normal standup and then moving to the tank. but i have to say that a dented in tank helps a lot when it comes to keeping your in place and not sliding off.

at least buy a surfboard traction pad start learning to do a wheelie while sitting on the tank with your legs somewhat low to the bike dont try to worry about getting your legs out wide for a spreader just make sure that you dont slam the bike down on your ankle get use to doing a wheelie on the tank first you gotta keep it simple

you don't NEED to dent it, it just helps with your style a lot. It's hard to really get that "leaning back on your tailbone" type of spreader with a stock tank. I still haven't dented my new one in, too nice. To tell u the truth, highchairs are a lot easier than spreaders in my opinion, dented tank or not. my 2cents

If you dont want to dent in your tank then do Hi chair style and use your feet under your upper fairing to hold your still.. or get your a Stomp pad and put on the tank.. Still the easiest way is to dent in your tank.... But we all know you dont want to so buy you a cheap crashed tank and dent that in... Problem solved!
