    I hear ya. That is why I have no desire to wheelie or stoppie. I just like my bike too much to wreck it doing something stupid.
    speaking of stupid, I am still trying to figure out who is stupider...the guys wrecking they bike trying to be cool....or the dumb spectators like the blonde with the blue shirt who just sits her arse in the middle of the road while some guy dumps a bike on her. morons...all of them.
    I don't have a short temper. I just have a quick reaction to bullshit.

          This decided it for me, besides the nasty road rash, can you imagine how much it wouldve cost to repaif the damage on that Yamaha. Im not poor, but I sure dont have that much $$ lying around.

            Personally I think it's a level of risk and a decision on how much your willing to accept. Stunting has no interest for me and never really has other than I don't mind watching the vids of it (crashes or no crashes).

            I wonder how many that will say "I won't wheelie" after watching that but will think nothing of blasting into a corner at well over the posted limit?

            That's why I never give stunters too much flak because in the end I'm no better, I just choose to push myself and my bike in a different manner.

              Says right at the beginning .... "Broken , performed by 12 Stones"
              The guy from 12 Stones is the dude in the Evanescence song "Bring me to life" .

                stunters? I love to watch 'em - very entertaining! But it gives me absolutely no desire to do anything like that myself... I think I have too strong of a self-preservation instinct!

                  It looks like most of these segments were filmed here in Florida to me (based on the scrub in the background and some of the buildings I think I recognize). The pnealty of living in a state with 11 curves in 318 miles is they look for other amusements... It also drives extremely high bike theft rates....

                  Hmmm...

                        I have one word for those clowns "STUPID"! Man that Yamaha is probably trashed with a bent frame and the rider was not to happy about the crash....That women sitting in the middle of the road letting two bikes do stoppies in front of her.... What are these people thinking????

                          I have mixed feelings about perfectly good equipment being destroyed. Oh well as long as it is'nt MY perfectly good equipment.

                            there nothing wrong with stunting as long as its done in a safe non traffic full place and yes i do wheelie and will continue to do so but its my choice but if i wreck because im doing something stupid its my fault and i wont turn my bike into my insurance company beacause i have a speacail bike just for doing stupid stuff on.
