Tips for a complete Newb
I've played it safe for 10k miles so far on my 250. Recently my friend who is a stunt guru (flips etc, starting to explore bike stunts) got me more comfortable with having some fun exploring doing stuff on the bike. Right now my only "stunt" is sliding up to sit on the gas tank and hang my feet out. WOW huh!?! I saw this video, and was blown away. I didn't know it was really feasible to do nice solid wheelies on the 250. I understood the balance point was harder, torque less, and thus harder overall.
Tips for a newb on the empty road nearby on a solid way to begin practicing simple wheelies? You see, i noticed it had his feet on the passenger pegs at one point, and wasn't covering the rear brake I believe, that's a potential diaster for an unexperinced candidate for myself.
Any tips on the basics and keeping it simple to learn? I'll wait for full out hooliganish till I get my motard, but I'd like to learn wheelies and a basic stoppie. I figure it can only help my overall braking technique and perhaps also my ability to control the bike.
