Imaginary Wheelies

So I was driving today on 290E towards the city (I know), and on the westbound, a fool on a Suzuki, was pulling off an imaginary wheelie. He was standing up, but the front wheel was on the ground. He was going like this for a quarter mile, at least. The funny part is that he was not trying to pull the front wheel up; I guess he was trying to do that mentally.

I know we all love to pull wheelies but riding is not all about stunts, so save some face

Might have been letting the boys breathe a bit...

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!

I stand to go over bumps and to stretch. And you say it was on 290...then standing for a 1/4 mile to go over bumps isn't that out of the question

I ride that blue and white gsxr, and fake wheelies are the shizznit! You all wish you were cool enough to be able to do them

I stand up for miles on the strada, its actusally kinda comfortable with its dirtbike ergos. kinda feels like your flying. but if i had a blue and white gixxer i would totally fake wheelie it
