    I’ve never been a fan of wheelies, bikes have two wheels and are designed to be used with both wheels on the road. Anyway, whatever floats your boat I suppose and as long as no one else is put in danger … still, it’s a hell of a waste of bike…

    I’m actually a big fan of stunts. I just dont think this guy was really experienced. you dont do it without crash cages and on the road when your not fully experienced. also looks like he had jeans on.. you have to gear up if your going to be doing things like this!

    No shit! I mean come on, not the proper gear, stock bike probably.. SQUID in my mind. When I stunted with my friends in NC, I used a buddies bike with a FULL STUNT CAGE. Saved the bike a few times. Also geared up from head to toe because concrete hurts especially when stunting.

    That looked painful!! I would like to get more comfortable with bringing the front wheel up higher than 2-4 inches just for that time I get too happy at the track exiting a down hill corner or something :twisted:

    I hope the rider was ok!

    You can watch countless videos on you tube of precisely that kind of thing. I watch the crash videos to remind myself of the dangers. Watch anything with the Mullolland by rnickey mouse, these guys have great videos.

    in the first video the guy was wearing tennis shoes.. I don’t have a problem with it, I don’t even care if you don’t gear up, If you get hurt doing stupid shit and destroy a perfectly good bike (as long as it’s yours) thats on you and I’m not hear to tell a grow man or women what they should be doing but it pisses me off when you endanger other people especially me or my family. I don’t even care if you do it on a public road like the video as long as that bike coming the other direction is with him and no chance that anybody that does mind getting hit by flying bike or body parts or even a shoe… I do still hold the right to call this guy a dough bad for not gearing up and destroying a perfectly good bike…….

    What a dough bag!!!! :-D

    Yea bad time to drop the throttle and if I was the cop I would sit up farther to not endanger the riders i
    Mean what if someone was coming the other way. I have sat up on the hill where that was shot just to watch people come around the corner and the next. I’m a fan of the popo I actually wanted to be a chp but that is a bit chicken shit if you ask me

    I found a video of a cbr in a slow turn and just thrown in to the guard rail. The video said it was a shifting problem but IMO the guy was a squid and just hesitated. Poor cbr….. :'(

    Imo that cop was sitting in a retarded place! I mean who is going to be speeding around that turn??? (besides bikers of course) and I dont think the dude did anything wrong in that video.. obviously just a normal reaction to decrease your speed… I do it all the time! (well i usually speed when i ride by a cop too)
