    That standup wheelie with one hand off the bars is a lot more impressive than it looks.

    I can't discount his technical ability on our bikes but I still think he is an idiot! Hold my beer and watch this comes to mind and usually goes bad fast.

    It sure seems like he has his TW running real good and the front brake does not appear to be stock. There is another you tube video of nut jobs doing these stunts and crashing and he might be one of those super stars.

    I'm on the outskirts of NYC. I've got enough hazards to deal with just riding normally.

    I'm sure it is. Almost every video I put up here has most likely already been posted. Like the Admiral noted, they just tend to get buried and it's fun to revisit some of them.

    I've rode street bikes for the last 10+ years, though I never had the coordination or money to burn for stunting, plenty of my friends love to do it. After reading the comments here, I think it needs to be said that we are a niche crowd of riders ourselves as "Dubbers". Folks don't get us, some don't respect us. But it doesn't make any sense for us to follow their example. This guy is riding in a controlled environment, wearing his safety gear, and has obviously practiced a lot. I don't think he's an idiot or doing anything stupid. Looks like he's having a good time at his own expense.

    Thanks for sharing the vid Borneo, I enjoyed it.

    I'm in agreement. Nothing wrong with some good old fashioned two wheel fun. I spent countless hours as a kid learning how to pull and ride impressive wheelies. It was fun. I'll even go further. I freely confess I still love to pop up the front end and ride it out. I can't imagine anyone is too impressed by a 53 year old man on a TW200 riding a wheelie, but it makes me smile ear to ear. Stoppies are a bit hard on a bike like the TW (or most bikes really) but I will do those occasionally when riding up to the young pups. Their faces are priceless. I think most of them think it was some sort of accident and the old boy just barely survived a horrible crash.
