Easy Tricks?

do u guys know any easy tricks for me to try. i can doo a fairly good wheelie and thats it.

by the way. how do u do a good wheelie. i can get the front wheel good and high (about 3') but i usually end up falling backwards on my back. i know it says to tap the back break but when i start to fall back i freak out and forget to tap it. any tips or easy tricks for me to try?

i have only done a couple good wheelies.

when doing manuals just leane far back like almost touching your wheel and have your knees bent... dont over comit because youll fall back well i do.. and dont bring your front wheel to high just bring it up like 2 feet and that is good.. just pump and you'll get it
