I've seen that one before - total insanity. I wonder how fast he was going on the first wheelie - looks like he was going pretty darn fast. I can't even begin to imagine having that much control on a bike and even more so on an R3 !

I'll gladly pay you tomorrow for a hamburger today !
The right guy can wheelie just about anything as seen in the above video and others of guys doing stunts on goldwings or Harley baggers. The average rider though...probably not going to get the front end up on any cruiser.

and a bunch of other stuff If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough - Mario Andretti
Personally I have no clue as to why people do wheelies, or burnouts, or other "hey look at me, I'm super cool" stunts on a motorcycle. Maybe its just my age, or the fact that I have been a rider for 35+ years, but to me the essence of riding is being out in 80 degree weather, doing about 55 or 60 down a winding country road just enjoying the experience and the harmony with my bike and with the natural world.
