Learning to Wheelie

It's really badass when I see people pop a wheelie and hold it there for a while. I never really put much time into learning how to wheelie and was wondering is it really a difficult feat to accomplish? I'm more of a weekend warrior when it comes to riding. How long did it take you guys to learn how to wheelie? I ride a GSXR1000 and I can pop a quick power wheelie about 1ft. high, but I'm a little afraid to go further. Any tips? Thanks!

I have been on motorcycles since I was 6. I used to ride a Yamaha FZ1 which I could wheelie a mile on. Me and that bike hit a guard rail at about 80mph. Now I ride a gsxr750, and while I can still wheelie forever on my dirt bike, I don't even wheelie on my 750, she's too pretty to hit the ground. It's all fun till you hit the pavement. You're much safer with both wheels on the ground.
