    Expensive bike to practice on. You only need one small mistake and it cost you hundreds in damaged panels, rearsets, bars, mirrors etc. I'd buy a dirt bike if i was you.

    With practice comes mistakes, I can see this isn't going to end well.
    Unfortunately Im wheely shit at them too.
    Buy a dirt bike or SM, it will be cheaper to fix.

    Then again it is funny watching someone fall off the back of there sportsbike, GoPro please.

    sounds a bit like that chap that came on here last year. he went out and bought a 690, but he'd never ridden a bike before. he said he usually learned things the hard way.........anyway, he crashed it on the first day.

    top tip always keep your foot over the back brake it will save you from flipping the bike

    Here's a few wheelies from a couple of years ago.....always use the clutch just to get the front up in a controlled manner at a lower speed rather than just using the power .....try using a light bike to learn on .....sports bike rc8 etc your deffo doing 80-100 easy before you know it....on the smc I could lift the front at 20mph and keep it balanced steady at about 50-60mph ....but be warned I don't know any wheelie master that's not flipped it .....I've done it twice both on mx bikes ....1st time was 25years ago kx80...2nd time not so long ago and was a quick £160 in damage down bog ....

    I did the Wheelie school at Blandford camp but think it has stopped a couple of years ago but it is all about low speed clutch wheelies + they had a cut out switch connected to a small bar that can be adjusted so you don't go too far.
    Not sure if they are still available but it is good to begin with.

    Could be these guys:
    Pull wheelies without the danger - Extreme Wheelie - The Ride of Your Life

    I did a knee down course a couple of weeks ago at Exeter with i2i - i2i Motorcycle Academy : Knee Down (yeah I know but it was a birthday present to myself and it was good fun - and yes I did, both sides and no I didn't fall off but someone else did).
    Extreme Wheelie were running a course next to us. Its run by a pro stunt rider. They used the wheelie bars on Yamaha MT07s. Seemed to be a lot of 1st gear power wheelie stuff going on and not much else but it looked like fun.

    PS - It sounds really gay wanting to learn how to wheelie as a grown man, unless that is, you are 8 years old ?
