Let’s be honest, if most of us managed to scrape our rear fender on the ground, it’s probably because something went terribly wrong with our wheelie. When you’re Harley stuntman Buddy Suttle, however, that’s just par for the course. We just wish riders would perform motorcycle stunts on a closed course, not on the open road. Full-coverage apparel would also be appropriate.

    I don’t doubt his skills but respect is a different thing all together. A bit juveline exposing that expensive ink to abrasion.
    Other commentators have suggested there are ways of dealing with wounded zebras.

    Seems to be a pretty empty road as far as I can see. And he’s not going that fast to require a full leather track suit. Why does everyone have to impose their own ideas on everyone else?

      I agree with your post. As a very long time rider, I don’t really look at it as an ‘imposition’ when one comments regarding ATGATT, rather, I see it as a statement of concern for the safety of a member of our ‘tribe’ regarding an activity that we’re passionate about and know full well the associated risks of participating in this activity. I view it a ‘nudge’ or reminder to keep your wits, because we genuinely care.

    I remember as a youngster, seeing an article in a dirtbike magazine showing Doug Domokos dragging the rear fender of his KDX so much so that it was folded up. As somebody that has never really been any good at wheelies, it amazed me then and still amazes me today. I watch guys like Unknown Industries and marvel at their abilities. As a side note: I don’t think Harley ever figured the FXR would be so popular with that crowd 🙂

    It would be cool for splitting lanes here in NorCal, but……………….maybe he can do it with a sponsored, disposable ride and plenty of practice. I wouldn’t even attempt doing that with my hard earned sport tourers.
