i did my first wheelies!!!

so in case anyone is just starting out ill give some details that might help you.

i ride a 1990 yamaha FZR 1000. my rear sprocket has 3 more teeth than stock...havnt checked the front yet.

since my bike is a 1000, i decided against trying to clutch it up. i hear its more dangerous and less predictable, plus my bike can power wheelie no problem...

i heard your supposed to do it in 2nd...its more predictable in 2nd. well my 2nd gear slips at 7k rpm, i tried but there is just no way that will happen on my bike, so i decided to do it in 1st, but take it easy...

someone had posted a link to a video that helped alot...wish i had the link. but at first, i just didnt even care about getting it up...just accellerate enough to make the front wheel "feel light".

on my bike, the horse is flat as till you hit 4k rpm..then it takes off like a ...so what i did was sit a little back on my seat...accel to about 4k, then ease off (or actually just hold steady) to stabilize for a second, then accel quickly through and up past 4k rpm, where all the power comes on...

it only took a few tries to get that "light" feeling, then i knew it supposedly would just take a little more to get it up. i just tried to give it a little more each time.
at one point, i gassed it and wasnt sure if it was up,...but when i rolled off, i felt the thud of the front wheel coming back down...

...and i became a man... lol...

i got off the bike and sent a txt message to everyone in my phone that i had numbers for...lol.. sorry to all those i sent txt messages too, lol...it was a monumentous occasion for me...hhaha...

after that my phone blew up for like 15 minutes with "who the f are you?..lol"
(yes i have very few freinds and no life...hehe):laughing6

well then i got back on and did a few more...it was freaking sweet. the last one i did came up alot more and alot faster than the others...it suprised me and my feet flew off the pegs...i would guess i had it up to 40 degrees, which is probably honestly closer to 30 lol, but idk...

so after that i decided to call it quits and go home...enough for one day. the bike suprised me once, and since my feet came off the pegs, i didnt want to push my luck anymore...for one day...

so to anyone aspiring, just keep trying, its not that hard. just take your time, be humble, start small, take baby steps, and dont try to be a hero, it'll happen for you.

...i KNOW allready. its like anywhere i am, its in the back of my mind to bring it up...worse yet, is i am learning to do them from a stable 4k...which is pretty much where i keep the bike at if im just cruising around...i know im always just that one little twist away...

...and then i think of all the times ive been riding around, and some kid yells "do a wheelie!" or some dudes you ride by at the bus stop making the wheelie motion with their arms...i always used to shake my head no, but now im going to be sooooo tempted, lol. especially to make up for all those times.
haha...fans...it was cool hearing joe and vu talk about little kids wanting autographs...thats so tight. you deliquents are role models now...oh lord!!

i just got back from asi again, watching joe, vu, and javi...and even though i seen them stunt plenty of times, its all different now, a whole new perspective on what goes into it, and everyone is trying to push a little further and do something new...

...christ...what did i get myself into, lol...

yo chris, i bet when you go out there you start to understand how hard the tricks are now, and what goes into the trick/stunt itself and start to realize what they do and how you can improve on your own stunting, i know thats what happened to me, i went to austin rocked some wheelies burnouts and stoppies come back and start to get the rear brake down really well... and progress even more than ever! congrats bro! keep it up and get pictures and footage so you can look back and see how far you have come! holla if you need any help!
