We hold this truth to be self evident: wheelies are awesome. If you want to learn how to get the front wheel up but aren’t excited about risking your bones or your bike in the process, then Brian Steeves has created the school for you. It’s called Wheelie University, and I’ll be giving it a shot on February 11th. Will you be joining me?
I had a wonderful time with readers that joined me for SoCal Supermoto School, so I thought it’d be nice to see if anyone wanted to join for another day of instruction! Here’s some basic information:
Date: Saturday, February 11th
Location: Barona Speedway, San Diego, California.
Cost: $495 – sorry, no group discount this time around.
Equipment: You bring riding gear. The school has a fleet of Triumph Street Triples equipped with a proprietary device called the WHC – Wheelie Height Controller. It allows instructors to limit the maximum wheelie angle and keep students safe.
Despite our LABV trip on the Ural together, Spurgeon from RevZilla still isn’t sick of me. We’ll be riding in Baja the first week of February, and then we fly into San Diego for the course so you’ll be able to meet him, too. I’m going to try to drag Nathan along as well. Total class size is 8 and I don’t know how many spots are currently open, so act quickly if you’re interested!
Here’s some more information on the class (we’re doing Level 1), and here’s a video from Rev’It if you’re a visual learner:
You can sign up for the class at this link. Hope to see you there! UPDATE: Here’s what happened!
