Nah someone booked a work meeting exact same timeslot so I cancelled. Still planning on heading on over though as soon as I get a spare couple of hours to make the trip.

Not sure how long it'll last their online booking system isn't exactly booked out for weeks in advance so I'd recommend you go sooner rather than later.

:lol: I managed to flip their Husky, getting too keen on the throttle, thank god it wasn't my bike.... its a funny feeling dropping off the back & standing up :P the hydraulic Ram stops @ about vertical, by then its too hard to hold on,
Unlike Disco I could only manage 2nd gear keping it up there.

Its great to do at least once just to feel the balance point, would not have ever gone there on my bikes & would need to go back a few times to master it but I am not that keen now its out of the system 8)

We teach you to do a wheelie in stages, therefore each rider will be required to successfully complete each task before moving on the next, this way minimising the possibility of unnecessary damage as a wheelie requires multitasking learnt in stages.

How much time do they spend telling you about how too's and what not too do's etc?Is that included in the half hour?
Looks like it would be a good experience.As redmistracer said, saves a real expensive weekend of flipping your own bike.

Yeah not that much talking, Quick intro & details about a starting point then rip in...... you can get some serious arm pump in 15 minutes of practice :P :kuda:

I was on the GSXR,
I was surprised how difficult it was to get the front up at first. You are sitting on the bike at standstill feet on the pegs and have the clutch on the friction point and quickly release the clutch (NOT FLICK IT OUT). There is no feeling of the rolling road or environment around you like when on the road. ( you are in a small room with no helmet on)
As soon as I got the feel of how much throttle to use it became very easy to lift the front and flick through the gears 2nd and 3rd. but holding the balance point took some practice and had I been outside would of needed a trailer to get home.

When the front is touching down it needs as much care also, you dont just snap the throttle closed. You roll off but as the front comes down you need to roll it back on slightly so you dont bottom out the forks and/or pop your front tyre.

I was lucky with my session, no bookings after me so it may have run over a bit ( Thanks guys )

Small carpeted room + hot GSXR1000 running for 30mins = pleanty of liquids lost. There is a fan for the bike which helps keep the temp down but it still runs around 70-80 Deg.

YES YES & Yes I recomend it. it is a good safe way to learn something all riders wish they could do. (Wheelie like a GOD :kuda: )
