Feels nice to bring the front up under clutching...not that I bring it up much. I am wondering do you guys put your dampner full stiff when doing wheelies? My fear is coming down with the wheel sideways...your thoughts and experiences please.

never had that issue, just make sure that when it starts to come down or you want it to, just before the wheel touches the ground open up that throttle again so it does'nt slam down and when you do so make sure that wheel is facing the right way.

tight is always good. If you come down sideways, the damper WILL help but if its vicious enough it will blow your damper

Get the wheel straight before you put it down, and put it down easy.

this guy is takin about that good ole "tank slappin" I had my wheel come down a few times the wrong side. I was goin slow enough to safley correct that problem, unlike some videos I have seen of people goin high speed wheelies and getting into tank slaps. So ya dont get in a tank slap high speeds and you should be cool.

HESD on the new hondas actually corrects steering by gyroscopic sensors when the wheel leaves teh ground...

Loosen up your grip, stop white knuckling the handlebars. You need to keep loose and it helps.
