Can Rebel 500 Wheelie ?

At the 12 min 38 sec mark in this youtube video it shows the guy popping a wheelie. What do you think his starting speed was when he got it off the ground? and what gear do you think he was in to make it happen? Did he just lay on the throttle or did he rev the h-ell out of it and pop the clutch? Mind you it wasn't up very long but it sure was cool looking to me.

Almost any bike can do it.

Almost any tool can do it.

Im way past that age & desire for wheelies.
May gain a lot of laughs if seen doing it on a Rebel..

You can pretty much wheelie any bike, even those large touring ones with hard luggage cases everywhere. Do you really want to do it is another question.

Do a youtube search on Goldwing wheelies if you want to see something different.

It did at least have decent enough power to pop it up!

The pax is an essential component of the exercise, weight distribution, as you noted earlier.

Well.. There is a reason to as why he is struggling at first when he is alone on the bike, vs when he has a passenger on.
The passenger ads the extra needed weight needed to easily lift the bike.
It's all about weight distribution.
