you've seen people get killed or seriously maimed from freestyle riding !?


i HAVE seen people get hurt from freestyle riding and im sure that any track is just as , if not more , dangerous than freestyle riding

this is starting to smell like a re-run




Fascinating...


I'm yet to be convinced of either.


Please continue.

Nice. Them girls have more sense than to do stupid ******************** on public roads (apart from Trinity at the end, but she's not real).

I've seen people killed from riding like an idiot on a public road. Trust me, it's not pretty. Riding on a track is far safer than riding on the streets. Let's stop right here, I can't be bothered arguing any more.

Fantabsalating.


Absolutely fantabsalating.




Page 30 this way >










BTW-riding like a idiot and freestyle riding is not the same thing... regardless of where the motorcycle is driven

...and you say , "the track is "safer" than the streets" !? ... ha , sound like you've never even been to the track .... don't let the real track-heads read this nonsense.

there no "safer" on a motorcycle .... regardless of where the motorcycle is driven

What I meant to say is it's safer to ride a bike fast on the track than it is on roads. This road safety commercial sums it up quite nicely.

Chesca Miles UK female street bike freestyle rider - 2011 teaser. - YouTube
Very nice, she's very good. It's London, I've never been to that part myself. I don't have any problem with this at all, Chesca's riding in an empty car park (parking lot for you Yanks). It's just doing this sort of thing, or anything dangerous, on a public highway, that I object to.

Oh don't you worry, never missed it. Just wanted to state mine that people are quick to jump on a stunter than someone doing a high speed run. My comment wasn't aimed at you it was a general comment...........

Now for another general comment... If you feel a wheelie is unsafe on public roads then that's fine but just appreciate the video for what it is. A show of balance and control.
Beside who wants to live a "safe" life anyways..... Boring and pointless in my mind. I've broken a lot of bones doing "unsafe" things and don't regret anything because I have a lot of cool and exciting stories to tell lol.

I don't understand why we cant all agree that its cool to do stunts but not on a public road. Doing so could put other people in harms way, and thats why it should be done away from traffic.

Yes people speeding does the same thing. When you risk injuring other people because of stunts or other things (texting, eating, reading, excessive speeding, or applying make up while driving), than you are not taking other peoples safety into account and your being selfish.

There is never any reason to do a wheelie on a public road.

Well, SS "inspired" me to give it a go...well, a timid go in a totally deserted wiiiidddee open industrial area early on a weekend ;-)

Requires a cr@p load of throttle control working in time with the clutch...only got the wheel a foot or so up and it went down pretty quickly LOL.
