hello all. i started riding 8weeks ago. two weeks after buying my bike i broke my collar bone on a tabletop so now six weeks later i'm back riding(more than just putting around, was back on the bike a week later). i'm confused on if your supposed to use the clutch for shifting or not. i have some people telling me to use it and some saying not to. which one is it? and next, wheelies. whats the easiest way to stand the bike up? i've been trying sitting back some and cruising up to the power band and just hitting it, but it comes up so quick and i usually get scared and instinctly cut the throttle again. my buddy has this video where these guys are holding them forever. are they shifting while doing it? thanks this boards great!
