Ok so here I go again, watched husband do it a couple of times.  Take off here, pull back, open the throttle, and land - yip I can do this.  First attempt - both wheels in the air, got the fright of my life. With heart pounding, I attempt this again - tooo much throttle, bump planted to seat, the back wheels kicks me in the air - loose my grip on the throttle almost go over the handle bars - almost, landed safely.  Ok lesson learnt - concentrate now.
The photos are of the many attempts, but was I happy to see the front wheel was up....

Hubby showing me how it's done, but using another rock.... 
Oh, and I might add, he forgot to check how much gas was in the bike - on the take off - the bike ran out of gas, note the result.... :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer:
