Reminds me of some fat dork on a tl1000r, last night, He didn't wipe out but he was trying to do a burnout and he would just hop forward , front wheel locked and all... He did get it going after 6 try's!

LOSER!!!

The other vid looked fake ... was that a zx9 or a ninja500R...

you've found your lawnmower runs pretty good on 108 octane gas

My friend and I actually did this! (jet fuel)
Me mowed 328 yards that day!

i like you scream at people who can't hold a line on exit ramps for screwing up your corner speed.

and porting your lawn mower, weedwacher, leaf blower.

but the video's are great. the guy on the gsxr, too much.

I do believe it was very real, and i think it was actually a Gixxer.

are you talking about the wheelie video? i actually recently discovered that it is a fellow austin biker. i know the road. i know his friends. the wheelie video is real. yes the flying bike almost smashed the crap out of the camera operator. also, the camera was right in front of some bikes, apparently, lined up at the side of the road. barely missed taking them down. i'm told it was ~3K in damage.

be it known that i personally don't know the guy, and i wasn't there. but i'm acquainted with a buddy of his. i actually... not too proud of this usually... have never wheelied in my life nor tried. one day, on the dirt on a bike i don't yet own... until then i try to keep both wheels down at all times.

that u may be a racer is so funny cause its so true... i do have broken (used) motorcycle parts in my office at work.. old sprockets. ive seen the second video. the 1st.. man what an idiot.

hey tafka.. how do u like the sv? i would think u would be wheeling all over the place.. but better to be safe & ride w/in your limits.. & learning on the dirt is a good idea too.

That was very funny, and informative at the same time. Thanx for posting it.

The bike in the wheelie picture is a ZX-9R, either a 1998 or 1999. It's one of my favorite bikes, I would recognize it anywhere.
