Hell my 1200GS will do a roll on 2nd gear wheelie and it doesn't have near the power to weight ratio you KTM boys enjoy. I bet those big traillies are boatloads of fun! I never rode one, but I'd like to!

Haha I just love that all us KTM big bike guys are so into wheelies and other such hooliganism that this side topic took off. Says something about us I guess! :

Just save your clutches and power wheelie in 1st and keep shifting! When you run out of gears keep hard on the throttle so the front wheel does a soft landing. Listen for the front tire chirp!

That's amazing...home made moonies. Or is would that be muddies? Glad it's not a Klr it probably wouldn't be able to turn the wheel like that.

You need to get higher. At the balance point you can keep going in the same gear and speed forever, no need to keep revving it until the front wheel drops.
