Need wheelie mentor in Lake Elsinore area! (srs)

Hey my name is Oliver, 2012 R6 lover here. Riding dirt bikes for ages got the R6 July 2015 and I dream of wheeling down the highway! Not really but in a nice safe enviorment.

Anyone down to take a couple hours to show me the clutch up technique during the weekend? I'll take you out for lunch? I ride Ortega Highway a few times a month with friends, 3 of us have R6's, thanks and nice to meetcha!

you don't really need anyone to show you....i learned straight from youtube. as your using the throttle quickly press in the clutch and let it out as quick as you pulled it in and yank on that throttle. literally it should be in one QUICK fluid motion. Be sure to sit at the end of the bike so when you go up your not sliding backwards...also cover the rear brake with your foot in case you go to fast and you wanna come back down. I've been doing them for about 3 months now and i learned off youtube. Its REALLY easy once you get the hang of it. BE SAFE and good luck!

Thank you brother! I've been watching 2 youtube videos on repeat lately lol haven't quite taken the plunge to actually lift the front wheel off the ground.

I'm really down to practice with someone locally as I've not seen once done in person really, thanks again!

Welcome and good luck. You could always look into that wheelie school that somebody posted about recently, sounds like a blast.

By the way, some nice past rides. I've had the pleasure of driving all three of those!

Can't say much for a sportbike cause I can only get it up for a second and maybe a few feet.. On the other hand a motocross bike I can wheelie all day long clutchless and clutch

im surprised with as many riders here there aren't more that can do them. Ive been riding for 4-5 months +- and started popping them and holding them through about 3-4weeks after I learned the process. I had a CBR around 8 years ago but only had it for a few months and didn't even think of attempting to wheelies than. I would honestly say you can do it on your own...just keep trying.

i learned on my own as well from youtube videos. its just getting over that gut feeling that you are going to flip your bike after you first get your bike off the ground. took me about 6 months total to finally hold a decent wheelie for like 3-4 seconds lol. i can try and teach you if you want. im located in tustin

It's probably a good idea to go to the wheelie spot with Scott ~ we really don't want to see damaged bikes with the blind leading, well you know . . .

Thanks I'm driving the R6 and a newer Altima at the moment but may purchase something fancy in the New Year again for me and my dad to cruise in

Went out to this beautiful spot today. Today was my 3rd day and I had a lot of motivation and I made like 1% progress lol

The clutch and throttle movement was on point 2 out of 10 tries and the sound was right but I don't think my wheel came off the ground lol.

Would really love to do these with someone, the guys I ride with don't know how either

If I had to guess where that is ~ I'd exit the 215 @ Ethanac, head west to the end and flip a . . .

Do you happen to know how to wheelie #1 Guy?

!
I've been known to hang the wheel a few times when we ride ~ but riding wheelies isn't something you should do all the time . . .

I want to learn wheelies also and debating between two schools:

Superbike-Coach Wheelie: http://www.superbike-coach.com/portf...wheelie-course

Wheelie University: http://www.wheelieuniversity.com/

Superbike is $180 using your own bike and Wheelie University is $500 using their bike.

Just something to consider.
