    Wiltshire. It may be full of pigs, but at least there's plenty of bacon.

    Find someone you trust to show you how to wheelie, as others have said don't chop the throttle in 1st and whack it open, 2nd at just over tickover with some clutch is fine on a DRZ.
    This is Grib after half an hours teaching and practice on a little yamaha serow, you just need someone patient to help.
    Same with the trackday tag along with someone who has done a few, it makes life less stressful that way.

    Yes, I know of a few, but none on motards unfortunately.

    Me and my other half both ride and are in Warwick. MrFiction and Kitty are around here somewhere too. We've got a few mates who are on bikes but not on TRC.

    If you fancy a ride out at some point, giz a shout. If you fancy a travellodge special, contact MLSP.

    He's absolutely right. All doing that would do is teach you how not to do it, which is how many of us learnt ... the hard way.
