The Wheelie Machine

Saw this on another board, looks like a cool idea. Appears to be a dyno-trailer with the rear axle locked into place and a stap on the front wheel to prevent looping it. Something like this seems like it'd be great to practice on.

I'm such a pansy on my bike about even attempting to lift the front wheel for fear of an expensive and potentially painful learning experience. I did one once on the Ninja 250 (no shit) and scared the crap outa myself.

that thing looks like fun. Looks like I'll need a bike that can do a wheelie first

Heres an idea, you buy/make the wheelie machine and I will come over to practice doing wheelies....

Sounds like a damn good plan to me.

$40 for 20 min? Sure why not. You got room for it in that garage of yours?

I remember seeing that on Two Wheel Tuesday on Speed. Great way to make some cash! I'd do it once.
