    Not seen one of those wheelie machines before what do you do?
    Just sit on it and it lifts you up?

    I think you may have to, as we say in the biking fraterity, 'twist the throttle' - (that's the hand grip on the right hand side of the handlebars). Noob! x

    SB, It's a bike on a dyno wheel type set up, held at the rear axle, you get on and practice wheeling as on a normal bike (Not Cruiser obviously.. Just saying..) the front wheel has a strap through it, fixed to the bed of the machine which prevents the front end coming up too high i.e flipping when you gas it....

    They are meant to be really good to learn how to master the distance wheelie without endangering the bike or yourself....:upyeah:

    Come on.... Popping a wheelie on your Triple must be easy man, surely you dont need to go to a wheelie school to learn that. Doing wheelies is the basics :wink:

    Yep but I don't really do them and don't fancy learning on a £11K bike....
    Have had the wheel up a bit under power.... But that's it..
    I'm a lump so can keep the wheel down and my natural self preservation kicks in....
