Wheelies; are they worth it?

I'm not sure if I'm really considering to try them. Just wondering whether the fun is worth the risk :wink:

Following on from that, when looking at your profile, I can see that you lost your license as you were going 229kph (142mph) on an 100kph (62mph) road.


Not so perfect yourself eh.

Personally I'd regard that far more dangerous than practicing wheelies in a quiet car park somewhere, and even further dangerous than not trying them at all.

CA has got a point ......

 

If you are so worried about folk getting hurt ....you might as well start telling them to give up biking altogether  ......then we would all be a lot safer and there would be no biking deaths, grieving friends and relatives at all.....

 

 

 

..of course life would be very dull..:winkie:..

 

 

...safe .... but dull.:upset:..

Smoothly does it

Personally i dont see the point in farting about doing long,balancing wheelies on my road bike.I do occasionally like to pop small power wheelies and always try to set the front wheel down as smoothly as possible with the power on...

Everyone who

messes about on a bike gets hurt eventually, ive come off twice in the last year, my mate has fallen off half a dozen times.

No one has even thought about knocking it in the head. The rush is worth the risk, people die. personally id rather just toast myself than sit around in bubble wrap all day.

Half the people your age are off their head on all sorts all the time anyway, i know around here half a dozen under 21's have died in the last few months while under the influence of drugs or booze.

Your bike is probably just as dangerous if you want it to be, but itll be twice as fun.

Indeed Brutale..

I think you`re being a bit unfair to CA.


He never said he was doing wheelies, just asking a legitimate question, i.e. are they worth it? 

Well the answer is......they`re worth it to some folk and not to others...simple.

Well Brut, I've just read through all

CA posts I can find, and I can't find anything that would upset you the way you seem to be, so a bit puzzled really why you're taking this attitude, not thinking of somebody else are you? :huh:

I don't know what your problem is, and frankly I don't care since you're being rude, petty and making arrogant statements towards me.


I wonder if you'd have the same attitude if I was 30 years old with ten or so years experience, yet asked the exact same question. I highly doubt it.

Earlier you mocked me saying i'm 'full of my own self brilliance' yet here you are saying you're a near perfect rider... Not doubting your riding skills, just perhaps your memory and inability to realise when you're contradicting yourself.

I certainly don't appreciate being used in an analogy of 'a retard with a loaded gun' and even more so dislike you calling me simple when your grammar, punctuation and spelling is terrible! (Yeah, low blow. But whatever, you deserve it).

Whatever your problem is, take it somewhere else.

It's been fun,

CA.
