    Empty parking lots work better than open highways. Less traffic ;)

    Keith Code also runs a wheelie school, but yes, you gotta start somewhere. Doing it on the highway or at a parade aren't too smart of ideas on how and when to do wheelies.

    I don't think a dresser bike is "optimum" equipment for a wheelie either!

    There are guys who pride themselves on being able to drag the trunks on Goldwings.

    Seriously, I have seen it done. :shocked:

    That would be COOL! with someone elses wing and someone else doing the draging. Love to see it just not do it!

    IIRC the Starboyz have it in one of their videos.

    Back when I had my first XT600 I was the wheelie king. It was nothing to ride one for a half a mile or so. I did buy taillights two at a time though. Something so easy as tapping the back brake when you went to far was somehow hard for me.

    The harley crash looked like he could've got up and walked away.I guess all the force went to his head.. I dont get why a lot of bike riders dont wear protective gear! helmet, gloves, shin guards, and back protector is a minimum. better to be safe than sorry
