Ok, this is bragging, but back in the day... I rode Yamaha enduros, that I converted into 2nd rate mxers. We had a little thing called the cycle Rodeo. I did wheelie the length of the arena, if I used the rear pegs. That is basically what these guys are doing, using rear mounted pegs. I could sometimes do that sitting, but it is more difficult. Standing on forward mounted pegs is tricky, you can get yourself in trouble if you get to far over. So anyway, I caught some remarks for riding in the wheelie contest on the rear pegs, and went back to the conventional wheelie. It is really pretty easy to control a wheelie when your body weight is over the rear wheel, and you have all that leverage. Controlling a wheelie sitting down using throttle and brake is much more difficult, IMHO. The first wheelie in this video, is much more of a challenge than the second, where the rider is clearly standing on the passenger pegs! BTW, he is really asking for a concussion!
