this is how i heard one does a second gear wheelie...

goto second gear (obviously)... rev up to 8000rpms... stand up, bounce the bike... while the bike comes up, hit the throttle...

is this correct? and if so... how hard do we hit the throttle to make it come up? I would think we should hit it as hard as we could because we would have time to see how fast the wheel is coming up and compensate for that...

and we all know the chicken came first... get with tha program! The egg was a close second tho... only .0000001 seconds away from a tie!
Sounds like the F1 race at Indy...so Schumacker (sp?!) was the egg and Barichello (again sp?!) was the chicken. But this was a mix up...in their case the egg was supposed to come first but the chicken goofed :)

BJ -
If your riding a 6r, you should be able to wheelie your bike in first. Standing up and pulling the front up helps but is just for show really, the bike has enough power on its own to bring itself up. I can just see you flipping the bike doing that...anyway, you can wheelie in first by running to bike to about 6000rpm's then let it off a fraction of an inch, (a milimeter in canadian terms :) then throwing the throttle back on hard. This will bring the front wheel up, but you wont be able to keep it up unless you want to switch through your gears. Watch yourself if your going to flip...if you are in that situation, just pull the clutch in and ease the BACK break on. You can imagine what will happen if you have the front break on when the wheel hits the ground. The only other think left to break in that situation is your neck and your back. Anyway, hope this helped some
