Yep, I want to do wheelies correctly. Been riding forever and don't have much fear but also don't want to crash either.
What is a good safe way to start? I don't have a dirt bike or access to one. Remember I want to be safe as I can.
Whats the best way? http://www.gixxer.com/forums/images/graemlins/hip.gif

Helmet, leathers, gloves, boots, second gear, 40-50 m.p.h., snap throttle without clutch, and be ready.

Apply gas in any of the 1st 3 gears you dork. One of these days I'm going to post a quick 0-140 accel run w/a trank cam going through the gears on 1 wheel for these tards..

is the word "safe" suppose to be used with stunting?
I mean sure its kind of fun in remote areas, but atleast wear gear. Point is you have to slowly find your limits and learn your bike. A dirt bike is a great thing to start with but don't make it a two stroke.
baby steps is the thing - and on a 1k isn't the right way but to late now.

stunting is safer then railing. Read as much as you can about wheeling and Balacne point. 1000 is a little big to be starting. Id say, if you are a long time rider, you should know someone with a 50 dirt bike. Practice on that to get the feel of the rear brake and balance point, then transfer that to the 1000. It should take less then a week to learn on the 50. Just borrow it for a week. Very safe. Well, 50's can be dangerous too, but cost much less to repair.
