Default They lost my text, honest

I said: That says it all.



Seems to me the wheelie record depends on how fast you're going when you hit the brake and how high your CG is (faster and higher the better). He'd do better on a faster Buell (or whatever).



I forgot to mention really glitch-free brakes, guts and skill.

Default A better translation... Maybe

A new World Recod has been set for "stoppies." Craig Jones is the new record holder who rode his Buell XB9S Lightning on only one wheel for a distance of 225 meters (just over 738 feet), beating the crap out of the old record of 163 meters (534 feet).



Craig Jones, a 34-year-old Englishman, a "Stunt Riding Champion," has acheived this new record, which was confirmed by a private judge as well as a Buell technician, on a private track in Florida.



In case you're wondering, that distance, which has been recognized by the Guinnes Book of Records, is nearly the length of two and a half football. (I mean the dumb US game, not soccer.)



The bike used was a stock Buell XB9S Lightning with increased pressure in the front tire.



Craig Jones is an "extreme riding professional" that does his work exclusively for Buell American Motorcycles and Harley-Davidson.


I'm not completely certain about the greatness of this translation, but it's closer then the Google one. If there are words incorrectly translated I'm sorry. I only speak English and Spanish, not Italian...

Default Now that guy can ride!!!

I love it. What a flat out maniac. Did you all notice this guy feels he is so good that he wears an open face helmet and not a full coverage. And he does it on a Buell. That ought to sell a few bikes I would think. I really think that XB9S is quite the bike. Can't wait to demo one. I've ridden the XB9R and it is plenty powerful for me but I think the S would fit my 6'1" better.

Damn that's cool. And on a streetbike! Most of the guys I know who do amazing wheelie / stoppie type stuff use Motards for the weight reduction. Then again, if you have to hit 120 mph before you start your stoppie, maybe you just need a bigger motor than that to get up there...
