    I usually use the clutch if I plan on riding it for a while. I find that it lets me get the front right up to the balance point without running out of gear too soon. Often when I don't use the clutch, as soon as I'm at the balance point I'm into the limiter in first and have to shift just to keep it in the air (I shift anyway). I like a graceful run through the gears instead of frantically smashing into the next gear just to keep the front up.

    ...but that's just me. Oh and I can't wheelie for shit, so ignore me.

    Kham, we meet on that ride up to VT I was on the blue R1 and met you 1st thing in the morning. I'm not sure how far back you where but I pulled some small wheelies. I have a liter bike so power wheelies are easier, If I was you I would use the clutch method remember follow the websites guidlines but do it in baby steps no need to go flipping the thing. Once you master 1st gear 2nd gear only gets easier its less "tourqie" if thats a word? Take small steps before you know it you'll be pulling wheelies like mad!

    Here is a quick vid of myself on a ride early in the season. Sorry to anyone who has already seen this.

    Stand Up wheelie

    And If you got the time this one too.

    Doug, right?

    I must be too far back so didn't see you doing wheelie. Really cool video. If I could get it up for 1sec. I'll be happy for now. I tried giving full throttle at one time, but my wheel just spin and that's before I know about the snapshut/blip open. According to the article in the Digital Magazine, the clutch method has less control for beginner. I'll try both with baby step like you said.

    Thanks

    I just like pullin my little lame ass power wheelies, One time when I first got the Hawk it came up so fast the tank slapped me in the chest. On my sv650 I used to do powers in stop and go traffic. It depends on how daring and stupid you are(on the Hawk I'm daring, on the SV I was stupid)

    actually I can't wait to try it this Saturday. Don't worry folks I won't try anything crazy just yet I only want to get a feel for it first.

    Damn this week is going by too slow.
