Has anyone ever done the wheelie school? I am tempted!

On my list:
1) Knee down school (planning on doing this for my 40th this year)
2) Wheelie school (just for fun!)
3) Track day training / noobie riding.

I'm tempted to do a track day on my Street Triple, friend of mine does them quite regularly at Brands

Track day will be a lot of fun, but I think the knee down school will be a great place to start on my route to become a better rider. Of course, track day will do too, but I think the knee down school is a better place to start before moving onto the track day.

Plus I get to have a lot of fun, think I'll do some recording too if it's allowed

Wheelies.... get a 250cc 2 stroke, find a field.... fall off lots...have loads of fun!

That pretty much defined my youth - I need another dirt bike!
Ahh the good old youth days! I remember wheeling my Kawasaki AR50 after school!!! It wasn't easy, as you can imagine!

I'm not sure that getting your need down is relevant to becoming a better rider. I know a few blokes that can get their knee down on the track without too much problem, never seen them attempt it on the road unless they're messing about on a roundabout. What they do say is that track days help you understand the grip and braking capabilities of your bike which then translates into making you a better rider on the road so they're worth doing just for that

hahaha, I can't wheelie for toffee! :D
Me too in the 8 years since I've had my current bike, but I did once. An accidental power wheelie as leaving traffic lights - police car was in opposite direction. Lucky he didn't turn around ! That would have sucked!

Why not wheelie? Coz I hate changing fork seals. A lot.
