    I have applied for the police approved wheelie school. Within the speed limits of course. Apparently you can have both wheels in the air at the same time. Sounds awsome!
     
  3. i want to do one of these, any recommendations?

    I have done a little research and some say we teach power wheelies coz its safest and some say we teach clutch wheelies coz its safer than power wheelies.

    Now Im really confused :(
     
  4. well with jimmy fireblade he teaches clutch and if you notice on the back of the bike theres a white stick attached and that starts of on the day as long as possible and as soon as it hits the ground it temporarily cuts power thus bringing the front down and as you progress thru the day the pole gets shorter and shorter but of course its not impossible to flip the bike still but makes it alot less likely

  5. I've done the Jimmy Fireblade day too, and it was a great day out. Best bit was wheelying down the runway on the back of his bike - that showed me how pathetic (in terms of front wheel height) my efforts were (are!).

    I've powered wheelied (not always intentionally!)and clutched up wheelied and the latter, IMHO, is more controllable, so I'm with Jimmy on the power v clutch argument.
