Though I have no genuine interest in doing wheelies, I ran across a comment in an article in April's issue of "Canadian Biker". Neale Bayly writes about his oportunity to ride 4 laps on Valentino Rossi's championship motorcycle in Valencia, Spain.
During his recollection, he describes (and I quote) " ...I could see my hands flapping, which meant the front wheel was off the ground, ...".
~So I ask: What EXACTLY do your hands do when you begin performing a wheelie, and WHY does it happen. I pulled a very minor wheelie around a corner once but I can't relate to the description mentioned above.
From one curious rider to another, Thanks in advance !
