I can't figure out how to do a wheelie. I read Nick Hill's thread and it just seems more difficult to me. I'm afraid to pop the clutch, I can see myself flying off. My 650 just doesn't have the power to life the front up. What can I do?
Location: Still riding a sportbike, unlike Gas Man

Of course, I killed the gears/clutch in my yamaha trying it that way, so it's certainly not the method of choice.
I won't tell, but you just got passed by a Kat !!! Matt - 750 Kat Rider, & TWF Original PostWhore
i remember one bike i couldnt wheelie. it was a older 250. forgot what brand it was, but i dropped the clutch at 9grand and nothin. my friend had an older katana 600 and he couldnt wheelie on it. i got on and dumped the clutch and she popped up. just keep tryin. it'll come eventually.
