High speed vs. low speed wheelies

Low speed wheelies are harder to control, but I think high speed wheelies can hurt much more!

OUCH!

Yeah ... didn't even keep his shoes on!

Hey .... isn't there a problem if you are doing 80 and the front wheel is doing 0? Isn't there some kind of lag that can fuck you up?

First guy that walks up after the crash goes to the bike... what a moron! He didn't even turn it off. Second guy goes to the crashed rider.

Nice boots! I'm thinking crushed feet and broken ankles at a minimum.

He kinda slammed the front down without the front wheel straight. Not a fun night for him that's fo sho.

The downside: He'll live and that will make the next dork think they can try it too and be OK too.... perpetuating the "I'm invincible" myth. Mix that with the "I gotta show up Jimbo and prove that I can ride a wheelie without crashing" and they cycle continues.

Everyone Exaggerates

We're being taken for a ride... agaaaaaaain.....

He could use a steering damper at the very least. I bet he tries on some leathers before attempting that again.

having gone just shy of 8 miles on the rear wheel only I can answer this with a no. It is pretty cool when you set it down though, kinda like an airplane landing with a small puff of smoke
