Grand Theft Auto IV

Grand Theft Auto IV Achievements

Wheelie Rider

Do a wheelie lasting at least 500 feet on a motorbike.  

Obtain a bike and head for the airport. Go to one end of the runway, and start to accelerate. While doing this, pull back on the to start you wheelie. Keep going as far as you can, and then let your bike down. If you made it far enough, the achievement will unlock, if not, return to the end and try again. The runway works best because you have a very long distance where you can drive perfectly straight without worrying about cars pulling in front of you. It is also important to note that performing a wheelie is easier on a slower bike, such as a moped style bike, so if you're having trouble maintaining a wheelie, seek out one of these and you may have better luck.

**Can be done after completing story mode**

i found this easy to do with the sanchez at the airport on the long strip because there are no bumps or cars to run into.

but watch out for the planes that are landing or you will hit them..

HINT: go fast then do a wheelie because you won't tip back and over!!!!

This is by far easier with the mo pad thing, I think it's called the Faggio! I almost doubled my max distance the first time I tried it and it seems more controlled then any other high powered motor bike.

I got mine around the docks in Alderney. No real traffic to deal with, no wanted level like at the airport, and pretty straight.
