Popped the cherrie...

Get your minds out of the gutter you degenerates!

I was just sharing that I popped my cherrie on doing wheelies. I did my first one yesterday infront of my friends house after he showed me how to. Didn't do a 'clutch wheelie', did a 'power wheelie' as he said they won't damage the bike like the 'clutch wheelies' will EVENTUALLY do.

I didn't get if off the ground high though he said, he said it was like 2.5-3feet off the ground. I think that's pretty darn good for a first wheelie. (I don't consider the one I did while going through a turn a wheelie).

bringing the front end up in a turn is not good dude. you got a long way to go..it feels like you are higher than what you really are. When you think you are at the top out point you really still have like 2ft to go.

Wheelie in a turn: due to some schmuck in a cage that decided to cut me off so I leaned the bike over, hard into the corner of the turn and hit the throttle, that's why that happened.

As for the height of the wheelie, my friend was standing off to the side, if I had my digicam on me, I would've asked him to take a picture of it.

two or three ft isn't that far up, it takes ALOT of practice. you will look back when you do get better and be like [email protected]! What i did on my first one wasn't [email protected]! practice practice practice! do it smartly tho. and take it easy.

Anybody that does big long wheelies will tell you that once you get it...you are like... "it's so easy" and don't understand why you didn't just do it on the first shot... ya know...

Its not only a matter of getting it up, but also how you set it down? I personally dont do wheelies, nor care to. But I see so many people do them and then slam the front end down. Just a matter of time before fork seals or somethnig breaks. Now if you can get them up and then bring them back down smooth, your all set.
