Anybody hear about this? Classes are supposed to start sometime in August. I can use some pointers especially getting it up in 2nd which i can't do for the life of me. I don't know though...$400 bucks for a day is a lil' too steep for my budget. Maybe I'll just have to suck it up on the frustration & keep practicing on my own.

Souunds like a good time... especially if you can beat up on their bike for a day. I agree that $400/day is a little steep for my budget right now, though wheelie

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

I didnt even click on the link however, Im guessing theres plenty of guys that will teach you to do a 2nd gear wheelie for half the cost

way too many people around willing to help you for free, don't bother payin someone 400 bucks for just a day. I can help, but I don't get out on the street much.

I went on the site and they do provide 600cc bikes with adjustable wheelie bars to prevent flipping. $400 to beat on someone else's bike for 5 to 7 hrs( it says on their site) might be fun. Especially since you won't have to worry about the cops. If I had health insurance and $400 to blow, I'd do it! Sounds like a blast! I've been riding 14 yrs and still can't ride a good wheelie. My problem is, I like my bike and my back too much to risk trying harder then I do. This sounds like a perfect solution!

yet another one of those buzzards schools.... guess what, one day of practicing on someone else's bike, with bs wheelie/brake setups won't teach ya much. Buy a used fiddy, and you'll learn hellova lot more, and keep it for life.
