Amature hour at it's finest. Damn. That poor tard, now it's wadded.

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

wheelies are stupid, they just increase your chances of crashing.

Also if you crash, don't worry about jumping up and checking out your bike. make sure you are completely ok first.

i like how he walked over to the bike then decided to look at his palms before picking up the bike.

wonder if his forum sig says.... Big Dummy

Operating a motorcycle. So easy, even a caveman can do it. Knowing how to ride? Priceless.

That was a total throttle control issue- wheelie newbies, pay particular attention to what his right hand is doing once he lifts the wheel........and dont do that.

Once the wheel is up, you shouldnt be able to see him moving the throttle if hes doing it right. SLOW gradual inputs in and out. Barely noticeable by eye. He was destined for a broken tailbone monkey'ing the throttle like that!

"When in doubt, use full throttle. It may not improve your situation, but it will end the suspense."

I'll be honest I was out last week and did my first wheelie...made sure no traffic was around and did it in first gear, going pretty slow (sub 30mph), got maybe 8-14 inches (probably less but it's hard to tell when you've never done them) for about 2-4 seconds and thought it was the coolest thing ever.

Tried to replicate it the next day while going down the road, and wasn't giving it enough power before dropping the clutch because I wanted to start tiny and work into doing ones that other people would notice....

I am irresponsible...but it is fun.
