So - THAT's what we're doing with the closed air bases? The first segment with the 636 looked like it was in a parking lot, though...

It's just a wee bit easier to learn this stuff on a dirt bike on soft(ish) ground, with unbreakable bike bits and wide bars. He gives some good tips but don't learn this stuff on the road with clip on bars and a monster motor. It'll cost you if you do.

Learning how to wheelie is the easy part. It's learning when to start rolling off of the throttle that's tricky.

FYI - That was Dave Sonsky, formerly of the StarBoys, when he was working for the Brit mag SuperBike. He's currently stealing money as editor of TwoWheel Tuner.

Oh, big deal, I used to do wheelies all the time without even trying.
