MCN video guide: How to wheelie

For most of us, if we had to name one thing we'd like to be able to do on a bike, it's pull wheelies. In this latest MCN video guide, senior road tester Michael Neeves talks you through his wheelie method in a step-by-step easy to understand format. Our onboard cameras give you a new look at how it's done, as Neeves...

Good vid, tight leathers...

Great advice. Is it just me though, or is Neevesy looking a bit 'fuller of figure' than his last wheelie and knee down vids? ;)

leathers

did look a wee bit tighter and i must say i did like the warning at the beginning of the video. are accidental wheelies illegal. e.g. too much throttle coming out of a corner or at the lights?

Good Video

Lets hope some of the advice stops wannabe wheelie boys from chucking it down the road (private road of course).

As for the leathers, I guess lots of riders have this problem after christmas. Just cut down on the pies lads is all I can recommend .

:biggrin:

Probably a big jumper, rather than pies & pints. Maybe ;-)

And the gaffa tape story is...

Love the gaffa tape on the Suzuki fairing - was this from " One I prepared earlier ? "

I think it was just where they had taped the camera mount onto the bike, looks a lot like that at about the 5 minute mark.

really helpful video

I've recently bought a Bandit 1200, so i'm paying attention to the big naked section... I've done a few small power wheelies, but always get terrified and bottle it. Never been confident enough to keep the throttle open. This clutch technique looks REALLY useful. Great video MCN!!

Arghhh I wanna add this to my arsenal

This is one aspect of my riding that I never focus on. I'm great at power wheelies, but for some reason my coordination of revving and clutching in is so off. Prob because I just don't try enough, too busy ripping up twisties in Malibu, CA. This is a pretty good video, I'll study it some more. And make more attempts once I get my bike out of the impound.LMAO
