One of the coolest motorcycle tricks that we have seen lately also has to be the strangest ever as it consists in closing the tailgate of a truck with a stoppie. Called the Hoenshell Shutter and performed by Eric Hoenshell on the set of Stealth Rider in Denver, Colorado, the new trick is actually practical and it is made of three important steps, as described by the performer itself: “Stoppie to park, park to stall, stall to SHUT!”
Kane Friesen is a Canadian stunt rider and the current record holder of the world’s fastest nose wheelie after managing to lift the rear end of his 2006 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R at the amazing speed of 137 mph and then coming to a complete stop. The previous record of 98 mph was set by Gary Rothwell in 2002, but like the wheelie master himself says: “my personal goal is 135 mph to set the bar so high up that no other rider wants to even attempt it any time soon.”
Former professional body piercer, Kane’s longest wheelie was of 12 miles, while he’s fastest stoppie measures more than 900ft.
