If you are doing wheelies in first gear the most important thing is throttle control....throttle control....throttle control... which is not something you master immediately upon purchasing a bike. You have two (now three) guys who have posted in this thread that could probably make your jaw drop with the wheelies we can now do.....But I am sure all of us actually learned how to ride our bikes and ride them well before we started doing tricks (mostly speaking for myself here). I will give you props for admitting you F'd up......but slow down and learn some of the other more important aspects of riding before you go all bling bling stunna on us.
AWWWWRRRRRRIGHT!!!

Well said Ken

He is right. Get the technique down of riding then learn the rear wheel. Been riding for like 27 years including dirt (started at age 7) and I still can't ride a damn wheelie. Can some one teach me this stuff?

yea thank Twiggy. hopefully i'll be back soon. but i didn't have full coverage, so i'm pretty much havin' to come out the pockets. don't think insurance would have given me that much for that damage anyway.

usosolo i do agree with you. i know i need to learn more and get more experience first before i start trickin' and shit. that don't do trick really, that was actually the first time. i was just trin' it out in a parkin' lot to see how.

Might hold off on a bike for a month or two. Decided to get another rental house for the boys college so I need to work some moneys around first. But don't give up I will be back sooner than later.

You have only been riding for a month and your already trying wheelies?

you sound just like the guy that i sold my bike to recently. he hasnt been riding long, and wanted to wheelie, so he went over a hill, hoping that going down the hill would help him balance the bike. he flipped the bike, just like you did. learn to ride, then worry about doing a wheelie. you're lucky the bike didnt fall back on you

I'm not gonna rip on you even though I agree w/everyone else. 1 month on a 100hp machine....ok ok I won't preach:

But, if you're gonna do it again:

1) Get a cheaper bike that you won't mind thrashing

2) 2nd gear is better

3) Yamahas have a high Balance point, makes it harder if you're fairly new.

4) COVER YOUR REAR BRAKE.

Work on technique first. As long as you learn from this, then it was sorta worth it in an odd way.

Peace,

Ali
