Here’s a video that shows all you Jackass wannabes things you should never do at home. Yes, they look cool, but they are being performed by a professional - stunt riding world champion Chris Pfeiffer to be exact - and should not be attempted unless you share the same title.
This video titled "Wheelie" is part one of a short series on motorbike stunt tricks. In it, Pfeiffer explains that a tremendous amount of practice goes into successfully performing these tricks, and watching a one and a half minute video doesn’t cover that kind of practice time.
Enjoy yourselves, but remember, this series is for informational purposes only and the tricks should not be attempted by amateurs. Yes, this means you.
Stay tuned! We’ll bring you part two of this series as soon as it is released.
While it may be hard to believe that someone can lift the front end of a fully loaded BMW R1200GS and keep the bike steady for enough distance to call the achievement a wheelie, this video simply blows away all expectations.
It shows a very skilled rider performing a 3km wheelie during the 2.26 minutes video on the Beemer in South Africa. Looking at it, you’re not too far off if suspecting this guy can go like this forever and ever as long as there’s no traffic and the road is nice and straight.
It is things like this that spice up one’s journeys and we really like to see people taking bikes beyond what they thing the limits are.
It looks like BMW would go to any lengths only to impress their audience and because simply releasing a video of their new S1000RR superbike performing on a closed-course track would have made them look like pattern followers, they instead choose to pull out an old trick with new means.
Pulling the tablecloth off a table without smashing the dishes is cool, but where does the S1000RR intervene? Well, the 193 horsepower superbike capable to go from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds can slightly increase the scale. So, will the dishes stay put or go flying all over the place? Click past the break for an answer that comes in a blink of an eye.
US stunt rider Chris McNeil recently got his skillful hands on a pair of new wheels and smoked the hell out of them. More precisely, he performed slides, stunts and wheelies on BMW’s superbike, the 190bhp S1000RR .
The bike appears to be adequate for such a rough treatment as in a very short amount of time McNeil managed to do great part of his worming up routine. Watch the video after the break.
United Kingdom TV show Record Breakers can brag about some of the most impressive world record attempts ever to end up on the TV screen, including the 13 people motorcycle wheelie attempt, which they consider successful even though the rider managed to keep that front wheel up for…half of second? See the video after the jump.
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.
Those of you who have always wanted to do a high speed wheelie won’t be inspired by this video!
This biker actually achieves a long distance wheelie at speeds in excess of 95 mph, but loses control after passing along a group of riders watching him. Amazingly, the helmet-cam that he used didn’t end up in flying pieces allowing us to actually see the crash through the rider’s perspective.
P.S. Don’t laugh when seeing this rider making sure that all his fingers are in place because it’s a miracle they actually are.
Funniest motorcycle crash by two arabs. These two should have never been on a motorcycle in the first place and if they are smart (something that doesn’t emerge from this video) they’ll be staying away from motorcycles as long as they live. And if not, you’ll be seeing them on our site…hopefully!
This guy has got it all wrong! Seeing stunts on the internet isn’t supposed to determine you buy a Kawasaki ZZR600 and try doing the same. In the happiest situation (which is also the one displayed below) you’ll simply fail and make a foul out of yourself.
And the guy filming is a total disaster. He first goes to his friend, next to the bike and back to its friend. “Damn and shit” are apparently his favorite words.
