Young organ donors on the other side of the planet, gather on a Friday night to flirt with their immortality.
Just like here.

The sound of an inline Japanese four hitting the rev limiter = quality ass content.


Or maybe not.

Doing wheelies is not exactly my idea of "daredevil" My son on his RC 450 Moto-X bike can do them all day long for any length of time he wants.
I did see something once that sort of impressed me. Driving down the autoroute I noticed a line of 3-4 sport bikes coming up fast behind me. I was rolling around 120KPH so these bikes must have been doing close to 140-150 KPH as we headed to a steep downhill in the road. As soon as it passed me the last bike in the line pulled up his front wheel almost vertical and proceeded to wheelie down the long hill and up the other side ... a good kilometer or more. It wasn't the wheelie that impressed me but the speed he was doing. So many things that could go tragically wrong.

...as they often do. Too bad these mini-minds sometimes kill or injure others that unfortunately happen to be in the same vicinity as the stupid people.

I used to have fun doing that stuff on a 125cc motocross bike when I was 12 but have never understood street "trick" riding, although it is impressive to watch a skilled rider. (none of those riders seemed very skilled..)

Seems like something to do when you don't have many good roads nearby.

I much prefer riding sweeping 3rd gear corners in the mountains with as few people nearby as possible and luckily, those roads are everywhere around here.

^^This^^ SoCal is a haven for great MC roads as well.

Save your stunts for the track kids. YouTube is full of moto-wheelie epic failure. You could be next.

I work on a frontage road for the I-15 freeway. we have a good 3/4 mile straight right in front of the building. Wheelie city. There have been accidents involving bikes and metric sports cars owned by youngsters. One of the car accidents was a triple fatality. The kid lost control, went off the road, through a fence and put the thing under a parked semi trailer. Took his head off as well as two of his three passengers. Lunch time antics.

Been goin' on forever with kids and cars. In some ways, it used to be worse: all metal dashboards, no shoulder harnesses (just lap belts that almost guaranteed a spinal injury) small drum brakes, crude suspension, no "crumple" zones...
