I am disgusted by some of the comments from, "supposed bikers", but not @ this guy's wheelie. He's done the crime & paying the fine etc, that's the way it goes, so what, get a life, its part of life.
He's not on a race bike, even though a Fireblade is quick. You cant just wheelie a Fireblade @ 90mph, without flipping, keep it up for @ 6 seconds by opening the throttle alone, (might need to compress the forks b4 lifting it up, clutch it, feather the throttle/back brake to stop it flipping, plus you need good balance, which probably comes from being a youngster etc). It might even do a tankslaper on the way down. Pulling a good wheelie, the rider does the majority.
Now, not saying this guy is Kevin Schwantz, but to slag him as being wreckless & going to kill someone is plain ignorant & inexperienced. He maybe needs a bit of advice.
I will tell you what gives biking a bad name. Bikers who ride their bikes like they drive their people carriers!! You see them all the time, incompetent/unconfident riders. Scared to go out in the wet, normal car drivers need to make space for them!! Plus what kind of biker slags another biker for being Polish, enuf said.
Sorry, but many of you guys are not bikers, stick your shit on Ebay & grow old elsewhere!! Too many born again/pussy bikers hiding beneath their, "biker" image. Its all these, "do gooder" comments thats giving biking a pussy name & making it easier for less freedom & more legislation. Dont slag the politicians.
Dont forget the guy is only 26, if biking is in your blood, you will realise that the next generation is the lifeblood of biking. Each generation is getting a diluted experience of what guys like me had. I had an Suzuki RG 500 in my early twenty's, what an experience to remember, (plus countless other types of bikes, some good, some bad). For generations down the line it will be motorcycling equivalent of a Vauxhall Toaster that they will have to ride. The character factor will be dead! I have seen the way it has went in the last twenty years, guys older than me, before 20 years before that. Dont let the next 20 years, end up with biking extinction, by these fuckwit opinions!!!! Its not as far fetched as you may think....
