Exclamation Stunt Junkies: 137mph stoppie!

Just saw Kane Friesen break the record for the fastest nose wheelie (aka 'stoppie') on Discovery Channel's "Stunt Junkies". Wow! That's pretty crazy! You can see it by clicking HERE. (It's the 12th stunt down, on the right side.)

You obviously ignored the part where I said "It's the 12th stunt down, on the right side.".

I watched it on the show the other night. He made it look so easy that it didn't look like any big deal. I'm sure there's so much more to it.

So Joe, when do you best it with your GT?

Wheelies, not a problem. Stoppies...scare the bageezus outta me. Also keep in mind that his bike was 150 pounds lighter (at least) with a much shorter wheelbase than my GT.
