Keep your foot were you can get to your back brake fast.

Gee I think I have seen that a few times!!!

I think I seen a 2004 GSXR 1k almost get looped at about 55mph on I-75... but thank god the guy found that emphamis rear brake!!

O, and 02gixxer!! My best suggestion sense your a self said newbie... is DON'T!!!! I repeat DO NOT attempt the wheelies till you have at least 10,000 miles of riding expierence!! Just ask Bulldog.. he didn't listen and his SV650s is wadded up in his garage!!!

Thanks GM That would be the answer to my question:

When should you start thinking about performing wheelies?
I am nowhere near confident/comfortable enough to try going up on one, just was wondering when is a good time...

Its not really as simple as numbers on the OD but you defiantly need quit a few before attempting it.

Yeah that was a scary moment. Dam michigan potholes.

i would just practice just bunny hopping the front for while and then work my way up. Thats the way start...No Lieing. I just grapped a handful of gas on my old TL and about looped her. But it worked for me
