I did a "baby" wheelie the other day. Caught it on camera too. Just got it up a little off the ground on first gear. Trying on second gear but cant seem to do it

I can do wheelies if i start between 5-8 mph, can't ride them out. decided to quit attempting them at all, on this little bike its too jerky. was practicing in a parking lot with my friends on their 600s and they let me try on a 2012 zx6r...much easier to get it up and keep it there for a second or two. on the 300 at one point i slammed it down admittedly hard on the forks because i had it almost straight up, i decided never again lol.

if you're going to attempt this, realize 1 mistake and you can total your bike, or injure yourself pretty badly. the bike can be replaced but you cannot wear your gear. we made one friend go home because he showed up only in a helmet. only gamble what you're willing to lose.

Stunt riding is part of the sport just like skateboarding tricks. I can respect a group of guys who find an old warehouse parking lot or closed supermarket parking lot and practice. Not everybody can afford to reserve some track or closed circuit area to learn or practice stunting.

Some people thought the slam dunk was a stupid move when it was first introduced to basketball. They said it was dumb because it required no skill and was unfair to the less athletic players and caused unnecessary risk. Now it's the most anticipated and exciting move in the game.

Stunting down a residential or other urban street with other traffic and pedestrians is not a great idea.

Now I got my 2 cents out the way:


Yeah like others have said a wheelie is possible on anything. I've seen golf carts wheelie. A power wheelie is not likely but clutch ups can be done all day. Upgrade your shocks if wheelies are your thing. If not, it could get ugly.

Opinions please.
Could an inexperienced rider (riding bikes for about 2 years and only owning a ninja 300 for about 1 year) do a wheelie on a ninja 300, from a standstill but travel over 500 meters and reach speeds of up to 60km per hour? (I am in Australia and not sure what the conversions are)

Not after opinions on how stupid it would be just after opinions on what the likelihood of this being possible is.

Thanks for any help!
