Very cool! Great pic!!

The way I do mine is second gear, stand on my pegs (if your doing a stand up) and just twist the shit out of the throttle..(I'm also geared correctly to do it -1 +2 or 15/65) I'm at about 60 mph, let up, do a little hop, then give it... works everytime..:)

Would you say its easier to do 1st gear wheelies or 2nd gear on the R6?

I only tried clutchin it once and that wasn't on my bike. Was on someone elses' GSXR.

On my R6 I can bring it up a little but not enough to even say a wheelie. I'm working on 1st gear right now. I'm trying the whole bounce thing. It aint workin for me though. I have about zero upper body strength.

I really need to find a good damper.

Honestly... I would skip the 1st gear wheelies. Useless and pointless and less safe.

And I never needed a steering damper - just always know where the wheel is pointed.

I have a Scotts damper on my bike and I love that thing.The 600 RR likes to shake it's head when you get on it hard,but not any more.

Well silly... The clutch actually needs a little finesse. :D
