Yeah, they are on high rotation here in South Australia. Anyone notice Mick's hands and fingers as he walks up...custom set for the grips and levers .

well said ecustu7 , well said ..... away from traffic ....

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.
on this one , (texting, eating, reading, excessive speeding, or applying make up while driving).... excessive speeding is the only thing that can even be related to freestyle riding (keeping in mind if the speeder is fully focused on driving) , and the funny thing , freestyle riders try to go slow as possible (except on stoppies , but then you're slowing down)

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

right on Dave ... good to hear

..but if you're serious , here a some words of advise..

the CBR250 is not the best motorcycle to learn on..
..by all means , if you like , go for it..more power to you

but the smart way is to get a 50 (crf50) ...you can find them for cheap ($500-1000 avg)...if you can wheelie that , then you might be ready to step up to a street/dirt bike

this is the first steps on the world of freestyle riding..












not to mention they're one of the funnest most dangerous motorcycles on the planet...


BTW- wonder if the size of the bike matters when it comes to stunting in public ?

..really don't think the fitty puts others in danger

Here's what happened at our racetrack back in 2007,
this is over the hill at 220-240 kph-
Since then no wheelies allowed haha

i voted yes...!!!
i absolutely love wheelies and motorcycle stunts...ITS JUST THAT I DONT KNOW HOW TO PULL ONE OFF

well, i really do want to learn and do it...but just too afraid to scratch my little weebee... i just love my bike too much and cant imagine it getting a scratch..

also, with due respect to everyones opinion and what they said, streetsniper asked if you like wheelies: a) yes, b) no or c)dont care ....

is it so difficult just to choose one if not leave the thread and go somewhere else... do you really need to turn this awesome thread into a debate if bike stunts are safe n where they should performed and stuff.... really..!!!

(please dont start another argument on my reply )

Four wheels move the body, two wheels move the soul..!!

I'm not going to start an argument with you Chinmay, but in all fairness, SS did say in the OP "...and if you like to leave a post explaining your choice , like: "i like them , just not in public roads" , that's cool too." Which is what I put, in essence, on my first post in this thread.

He knows not where he's going, for the road it will decide, it's not the destination, but the glory of the ride.

Even though I voted I don't care about wheelies, that threat made me curious: what's the technic of the wheelie? How do you pull one off?
