    Other suggestion is to start on a dirt bike or sumo. something that will bounce back from a loop like it is its day job. ask me how i know :P

    Yeah, its a dead end road and for some reason it is not known to many people, so I usually train there alone, which I dont mind at all, I just always hope I dont crash it

    I've been searching for a road to practice on around me where I won't be bothered and still no luck. I'll do small wheelies occasionally but I'm still not comfortable doing them, especially around other traffic and I'd prefer to not get a reckless ticket.

    Look for warehouses/shipping centers... There are probably 3 with solid 1/4 mile "runways" within 10 miles of me. Will probably have to limit your practice times to specific times/days when they are empty. But that's where I go to practice.

    yeah, I have tried it in first gear as well, but I did not feel secure doing that, the throttle is too sensitive for my basic skills, 2nd gear feels a lot smoother.
