Yes, you have to crack open the throttle then close it then crack it open again and the front will go right up. If it doesn't go up then you did not crack it open enough the first time or the second time. Most people don't understand, knowing how to do these things, safely, will teach you how to control it just in case it happens by accident while you're at a spirited pace on the street or on the track. I am so glad I learned how to power, clutch wheelie and do stoppies during my squid days because it's saved me numerous time when the front have gone up really fast being too aggressive on the throttle or the rear flies up while coming to an aggressive braking situation. I see a lot of people get into bad accidents because they freeze when these things happen. The reason they freeze is because they do not know what to do to settle the bike. The only thing I would recommend is to do it in a controlled environment should something go wrong, you do not cause greater injury to yourself, others or damage property.

And after you're completely confident and in control of these abilities, throw the wheel up while with your friends because everyone will think you're super cool

I got laid this weekend thanks to the help of a wheelie lol. Granted, I was with other riders and no one else in my group could wheelie. Did it, and won her over. I probably would of gotten it anyway.. but it definitely got her intrigued.

Dammit, so it works....Last weekend me and 3 guys I ride with were in the Hamptons at a gas station, and two limos full of drunk girls pulled in and a group of them came over and the first thing the girl said was "who can do one of those things where you pull the bike up in the air"? Being that we were in a small gas station parking lot and the only one of us that does wheelies wasnt willing to do one her request was denied...Apparently that wasnt a wise choice....

That being said, congrats FP and lesson learned.....

I've never done stunts on a bike at all but trying that 1 wheel life sounds so tempting so...Did my first endo at a stop sign on my way home with nobody around. I tried a few times and could never so I didn't expect me to get it this time. That shit was scary as hell because I went up about 60 degrees, came down, and the bike shut off because I didn't grab the clutch

I gotta find an empty space to practice more plus learn to wheelie. Nervous as hell tho

Its all about doing it at your own pace, you can ride with stunters all you want but if you try to rush and do what they do your gona have a bad time (little south park reference there ). Me I use to be into wheelies and all that, but now Id rather just ride and hit some curvy roads with a group of friends.

I agree with the last point there, I'll take curvy roads over straight lines all day. But to be in complete control of your bike when it's on one wheel seems

Just keep in mind that as much as doing a wheelie can get you laid, it can also mess up your chance if you get it wrong. I once had this hot chick on my bike. We went for a delightful ride and I was surely in. We made a stop at a park and I was negotiating with her on where we should go next (Hotel or her house). I was putting a lot of emphasis on a hotel so she wouldn't change her mind. before we went to the hotel, she asked me to do a wheelie. The area was really small but I figured I could bring the wheel up and down safely before I ran out of road. I was wrong and nearly crashed in the process. Her seeing me almost crash scared he so much that she would not get back on the bike and that was the last time I saw her .

I feel like this is starting to switch from how to wheelie to how to get laid thread real quick . But I wouldnt recommend doing wheelies with girls on the back just yet if your starting to wheelie.
