Riding wheelies out

So I've been starting to get pretty good at clutching wheelies up in 3rd and riding them out for a good little bit.. But my question is, how do you ride them out and not really gain a whole lot of speed while in the process? I know it's a bad example.. But like how you see people riding them on the highway going almost the same speed as traffic and not really gaining any speed?

The higher you get the front the less power (rpm) then engine has to go through to keep it up. Get it up high enough and you will hit the balance point ( the bikes center of gravity while on one wheel). Then there is always shifting while in a wheelie.

Thanks will do!

Anyways.. Is it better to hit that balance point standing up? All my wheelies have been while sitting down?

Your preference honestly I sit my buddy stands. do some research on what year bike you have and the engine starving for oil during a wheelie I have never had a problem on my 06 CBR1000RR but a guy I used to ride with had some on his 04 CBR1000RR.
