Winning is great and all, but what you really want is to win with some style.
This time of year, the colder parts of the world typically bemoan the icy conditions and the lengthy to-do list associated with putting their beloved motorcycles in storage for the winter. Except Arūnas Gibieža. This guy is rad.
It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a supercharged big-block V8 and tremendously unsafe weight distribution.
A “wheelie” is when you pop up the front wheel of a motorcycle and proceed forward with a tire in the air like you just don’t care. Stupid stunt? Maybe sometimes, but the skill can be downright useful and this is the best tutorial I’ve seen yet.
I’ve never heard of the Merrill Ice Drags in Wisconsin before, but I feel a sudden urge to attend.
You know you have enough rear grip when...
Getting busted by this horse cop in particular was the best thing that could've happened to this Suzuki GSX-R rider popping a wheelie in downtown London.
Those wheels. The noise. The bending bumper. The towing wheelie! What better way to turn some fuel into fun?
I'm not sure I've ever wanted to move out into the Pennsylvania woods more than right now.
Watch in awe as this drag racer pulls off a wheelie so big, his car nearly takes off like a plane.
Hey, maybe I'm overly safety-conscious. Maybe I'm a pussy. Either way, doing a wheelie at highway speeds with four other people on your motorcycle seems like a bad idea.
Here we see an ATV rider pull a wheelie, only to have his ATV escape from under him. Watch as the rider has to chase down his own ATV in traffic.
With very few exceptions, Hondas are front-drivers, and front-drivers don't make the best wheelie cars. An exception in the Honda fleet being the late, departed S2000. Watch as this heavily-tuned unit managed a very un-Honda-like nose loft (helped by massive boost and drag slicks) at TX2K12 this past weekend.
Watching a vehicle with two wheels to the sky is a pretty fail-safe way to bring a smile to the face of any car lover. While it's usually purpose built vehicles or super powerful drag cars that are capable of lifting the front end, every once in a while you can get great wheelies from an unexpected source like the…
Know what's great about fabricating your own ride? Being able to knowingly make something stupid. Case in point: Slim's Wheelie Van, a chopped 1964 Chevy G10 van with big-block Mopar power behind the rear axle. Yes, it does wheelies.
