Oh yeah rub it in lol. I have to hold up the gear shifter from 1st to 2nd so its in neutral, rev and then let go, but it works really well. Harder to do on a sports util than one of those rockets. hehe

LOL, I'm not real good at them or anything. I can't ride them for a long period of time. I do them when iI need to get the front end up over something.

I was practicing on my 400ex today. I've never had the nuts to actually pull it up far enough to actually ride one. Today I got a burst of testosterone or something (I think it's because of this one girl I've been talking to...lmao) and I was actually riding some today. I can do em good in 1st but not enough speed so they last not quite that long. I tried it in second and it scared the shiet outta me. Any tips on how to shift while wheeling?

It takes practice. Learn how the machine feels and get comfortable with it, and make sure your rear tires have the same amount of air psi or it will turn with you

You will find the sweet spot where it will balance nice and easy. Keep your feet on the pegs. When you are in the sweet spot you can up shift up. Its not easy but it can be done.

Me personally... about the time I get to the sweet spot I'm generally looking up at the sky flat on my back....LOL I can never seem to get to the wheelie point and stay there, i could do it on a bicycle but not on my quad.

I'm not brave enough to ride them on pavement. I really only do them when I need to, to clear an object. In my races there is a few sections that are steep downhills, there is nothing like hitting those at 70+ mph and the front end doesn't touch the ground until the very bottom... That is fun.
