First off, I'll have to say that I CAN'T do that. Second of all, I'll have to say that I have too much respect for motorcycles, the road, my skin, and the pathetic pieces of green paper (usually marked $1) in my wallet I call a meal ticket.

But I think it's awesome that some guys feel comfortable with their bikes and their own abilities to be able to perform like that.

Cool clip. Thanks

I agree. I wish I could be that good. I just don't feel it is worth the risk to get there.

Looks like some serious rear brake control to keep them balanced at those low speeds. That's sweet!

While I wish they were wearing a little more gear (at least one of the guys had a helmet on though) I do admire that they are doing the tricks in a "out of the way" place.

Kick ass video. Thanks bro.

P.S. Wheelies scare the shit outta me.

There's no way to learn how to do them without...

1.) Being willing to crash
2.) Setting up a wheelie bar
3.) Learning to modulate the rear break
4.) Crashing

I here by sware that I will dedicate all my creative, emotional, intellectual and physical energies into learning 12s by this time next year

Anyone know what the title of that song is, or who sings it?

If I'm not mistaken, it's "Atwa" by System of a Down. From their Toxicity album. Great CD, by the way.

Yeah it is a good song, only thing about the band I don't like is that what's his face, the lead singer, sings with a sort of opera style that doesn't always fit. None the less, good song - good band. Great wheelies.
