Title: Popping Wheelies in Traffic
Post by: silentbob on May 02, 2013, 11:45:18 pm
So on Tuesday I'm commuting home on William Nicol and this bloke on what looked like a KTM 950 Super Enduro with a KINI Red Bull sticker kit (to the owner ... nice bike) pushes past me... OK, slightly not impressed because if he has just waited 30 seconds there would have been ample space and I did not have to almost have my handle bar clipped.

I however catch him at the next light and the moment it turns green he fly's off and so it goes for about 8 lights (I guess though some folk have this absolute need to be the first to stop at the next traffic light). Racing off like that is however not my problem and since I'm riding my speed behind him, I'm not really bugged by it. What however did bug me was this absolute need of his bloke to pop a wheelie and try hold it for as long as possible (or at least till he caught the tail end of traffic) from each and every friggin' traffic light. Heck the one light he even stopped the bike on a front wheelie.

This blokes skill on the tar is OBVIOUSLY far superior to mine and impressive (I can't wheelie and I don't really care to either) ... but really, that sort of riding is just immature and reckless in my opinion. If you want to pop wheelies, fine ... go pop wheelies on a track where you don't pose a hazard to your fellow road users, because quite honestly everyone just looks at this and thinks "<insert Afrikaans word for a box here>".

So my question is why? Why this need to act like a "<insert Afrikaans word for a box here>" and pop wheelies during afternoon traffic? I just don't get it. Please explain.

Oh... just another thing (in case you are on this forum) ... get some gear. T-Shirt = Road Paint.

Just smile and wave.. I have yet to find one of those okes who haven't seen their asses at some point. Amazingly when they do see their ass it is the bikes fault you know.  :laughing4:

Rather ride safe and ignore the guys more comfortable on one wheel, you will live longer.

I have never heard a guy that can wheelie, complain about another guy popping wheelies in traffic.

It is always the non wheely okes making a fuss.

Why? Please explain.

When I still had my SE I did the same quite often.
You just cant help it on the SE it is so easy to wheely and loads of fun.
Tour has my old SE now and those of you thats been riding with him will know he now also has the habit of wheely almost everytime he pulls away.

If it endangers other road users you should not do it, I agree with you.

Barring the obvious fact that popping incessant wheelies is reckless (to some of us) and illegal (yes it is) it is bad for your engine... :pot:

I would never buy a bike that had been ridden in this style... :sip:

However... like the 4x4 guys say... "as ek kan dan sal ek". A good wheelie is always impressive... :biggrin:

Rob - you'd be surprised how little stress a properly executed wheelie on a big bike puts on the engine.
;D ;D


As to the 1st question - 'want hy kan'

;D ;D ;D ;D

I also agree on not doing it when endangering others though.

Onthou net om nooit te staan en wheelie nie... Netnou lyk dit of jy dans...

Sounds like jealousy..wheelies is what pulls the lady birds..it makes everyones day to see a good wheelie, like a MX whip, when done right it's just pure eye sex.

My issue is not the actual wheelies, it's where they are being executed.

Yes, as BFG says "he is only endangering himself", but heck.... on the off chance he bails, it'll be likely that it'll be right in front of me and then it becomes my problem.

My 2c worth ... there is nothing more exciting when my husband pops a wheelie with me on the bike. Yes, we have also done wheelies from when the robot turns green, but that is normally first thing in the morning when off for a ride or on the way home and both are from pure happiness. However my husband always put safety first and if there is a risk someone could get injured he doesn't do it (even when I'm whining for more).

"Realistically, people shouldn't be doing those speeds in 60 zones (by that time we had entered suburban area). The bend we came around is notorious for cars accidents. A lot went through my head, but all I wanted to say is... 'slow down'.

I copied this from a threat that was also started today. How is the behavior of the BMW driver any different from popping a wheelie in traffic?

The fact is, it is illegal to perform a wheelie on a public road,  and no matter how big a riding / wheelie god you are, you are still breaking the law.

Much as there are complaints about cyclist not being entitled to be treated with the same respect as other road users until cyclist learn not to ride abreast of each other, how can we as motorcyclists expect to be treated with due regard if we do not display that same regard to traffic laws and by extension other road users?

Yes I know it is about dick swinging and pissing contests, and let's go for that, but if we decide to do that let's not lament when cages do not treat us with any regard or respect for our safety.

It's actually quite simple, if you live by the sword you must also be prepared to die by the sword :pot:

Dit is ook maar net altyd die mense wat nie kan nie wat kak en kerm oor die mense wat kan.

Woensdag ry ek van Houtbaai af terug huistoe op die M3, ek ry stadig want familie en vriende is agter my in die bus.

Twee superbikes kom verby en ek maak plek vir hulle, en hulle sleep daar weg met 'n spoed.

Die juvenile in my neem oor en ek jaag hulle, fokkit dit was lekker, veral toe ek hulle vang (iemand gaan my nou uitkak omdat ek onverantwoordelik in die verkeer gejaag het, wag net so paar posts...)

In elk geval, 'n ander superbike trek to agter my in en doen 'n awesome wheelie - RESPEK  :thumleft: dit was befok ek hoop jy het dit geniet.

Hou op fokken kerm oor hoe ander mense ry, los jou keyboard vir 'n paar uur en gaan ry jou bike, regtig probeer dit, dit is eintlik nogal fun  :thumleft:

It is perfectly natural process humanity undergoes its called natural selection.

Exactly

Wheeliest = Gets the pretty girls = pretty children
People against wheelies, most probably 45+, accountant by trade, married the wrong woman and now lives a life of regret.

:imaposer:, Ettienne, the prettiest women gives you[usually] the prettiest kids, but also the smallest and weakest. The models and Justin Biebers [usually] comes from pretty moms, while the top rugby players come from earth-stock women with child-bearing hips. Hempies du Toit's own words. :imaposer:
And the type of girl attracted by a wheely is the equal to the type of girl attracted by a dooskarretjie doughnut, or a Escort 1SIX-doublenoughtScort doubleclutching. :pot:
The real girl is more prone to be attracted by what you wear as to what your bike can do.

I thought I would have grown out of it by now................Not a chance :thumleft:

I wheelied along old main rd in Hillcrest the other day and a metro cop was going the other way. Luckily there is a cement mediun(?) so he couldn't chase me straight away.

If he ever pulls me over I will just ask if if such a ballie like me can/would do things like that.....really now heehee :ricky: :3some:

So is screwing a beautiful woman (or man if that is your thing) but how often does that happen in public?

Do your wheelies, stoppies and what ever, but why in traffic where if something goes wrong (as it invariably will, no matter how big a riding god you are) you can actually kill or maim innocent bystanders?

I really do not give a knat's bunghole if the rider is endangering his own life, but I do care if those action are endangering the life's of innocents.

Garfield will the action of the super biker still be applauded if he overcooked the wheelie and fell down right in front of your family, causing an accident?

I'm not commenting on the frequency of screwing, I am commenting on the appropriateness of doing it in public.

If a wheely is done away from public, who will appreciate it then??

Do the wheelie in public, but not in traffic. There is a major difference between the two and that is the point I am trying to put across.

Perhaps you should consider safer means of transport. Like a donkey cart. :pot:

A bit rich considering that you are the one riding a 600 cc bike.  For crying out loud the bike I ride offroad is almost the same engine size, and let's not even start with what bike I ride on road :)

Jokes aside and to be clear on what I am trying to say, I have nothing against wheelies, just do not do it where your actions can cause harm to other persons who cannot exercise  their prerogative to not expose themselves to the risk.

Even if the analogy was not flawed , which incidentally I agree it is, the difference between astronauts and riders popping wheelies in traffic, is that astronauts in assuming the risk involved only assume that risk in respect of their own lives.

Riders who wheelie in traffic are not only assuming that risk in respect of their own lives but also in respect of other individuals in traffic at that particular point in time.

It is the arrogance of doing this that I am arguing against.

I don't mind the okes who wheelie as much as I get annoyed with the okes who lane split to the front of the robot then pull slightly infront of the cage when he gets to the front.. all would be fine if the biker was awake and pulled away with skill when the robot turned green, but the okes who fall asleep in front or pull away like grannies pisses me off.. I would rather the oke pulled away into an instant wheelie rather than me pulling away and having to apply brakes because the rider who just pulled infront of me is asleep.

In any event, lets be honest, if an oke pops a wheelie from a robot you will either admire his wheelie, or admire his spectacular off.

Ag tog asseblief, hier sal darem altyd 'n klomp moangatte wees.

As ek kon wheelie, sou ek dit ook gedoen het.

Kom wees nou eerlik, as mens voor by 'n robot wegtrek, wie is voor jou?  Fokken niemand.  Die aankomende verkeer staan ook stil, gewoonlik.  En daar is (gewoonlik) 'n vet middelmannetjie.  Niemand gaan seerkry as die hy die wheelie opfok nie, net sy ego.

Hy wheelie doodeenvoudig omdat hy KAN.  En as hy stoppies kan doen by die volgende rooi robot, glo my, dan was die wheelie fokkol vir hom nie.   :ricky:  Hy wheelie al baie langer as wat hy stoppies doen!

Wie is die ou wat sy tril laat uithang by die party?  Die ou met die lang tril.  Wie is die ou wat wheelie in traffic?  Die ou wat kan.  Nes die ou met die lang tril.

mmm ... not sure what the define astronauts did to get pulled into this, but what is pretty interesting is the fact that a lot of folk have missed the point completely.

So, I give a hoot about safety and get told to move along and join Think Bike... considering that not so long ago a number of dwags have passed on, one would think that issues such as safety and awareness (and general cage driver opinion) would be at least something to consider.

So I can't wheelie, but that does not mean I'm griping about it (read my post again and you'll notice that I even said it was impressive). I'm griping that in traffic it's irresponsible (and apparently illegal as someone mentioned). Yeah, most of the dwags out there think "Sjoe boet, dit is kief, ek smaak jou skill" (in truth, so do I),  BUT from a cage drive perspective ... not so much and they seriously out number us.

My point is, kit up, don't act like a "<insert Afrikaans word for a box here>" in traffic, save it for the dirt, so that no one has to read about any more dwags down.

Kan jy wheelie, CharlesS? - Jy sal my maar moet nooi om by jou in Limpopo te kom kuier dan sal ek jou wys :)



Charles, baie mooi versameling daar in jou garage! Moet net nie vir my vertel jy is soos die paar Superbikers met al die "race" gimmicks op hul bikes, maar hul tyres is net in die middel afgeloop nie Dankie, maar die oudste twee moet een van die dae plek maak, my vrou dreig om my te skei as haar kar weer buite moet slaap. Maar die bande loop darem op die kante ook af.

Hoeveel mense is in die afgelope jaar deur wheelying bikes beseer? Buiten ek self wat my stuitjie gebreek het? Maar ek sien jou punt 2strokeDan.



Impressive collection daai ou maat!  Die beste uit die oranje stal.

Ek is wel 'n baie groot KTM fan, my post oor die KTM ding is sommer net stir, niks leliks bedoel nie.

Ek het maar net gesinspeel op die T-shirts wat deesdae te koop is:  "Dis 'n Toyota ding, jy sallie verstaan nie".

My KTM geskiedenis (tussen my en my kids) 950, 950, 990S, 250, 300, 300, 300,  en 2014 350 oppad.   So my bloed is maar erg oranje.....


Ek hoor jou Uitjie as daai gogga eers is jou bloed is dan suffer jy maar......

Ek betwyfel dit BAIE sterk of ons een van Charles af gaan kry. hahahahaha laughing4

Ek is Desember in die Wes Kaap, ek sal jou wys as jy die foto's neem en die snoek sal braai  :)

Menere soos wat ek gese het ek het geen probleem hoegenaamd met wheelies nie, moet dit bloot net nie doen in verkeer waar as iets verkeerd gaan jy ander mense ernstig beseer nie. Die wat weet hoe lyk William Nicol Weg sal verstaan dat in spitsverkeer jy basies sit met 'n parkeer area, en cagers en taxi's wat squat voel vir iemand op 'n bike. Om onder sulke omstandighede te wheelie is om te soek vir k@k, en as jy die wheelie net vir daai een keer verloor is dit jy en  onskuldige mense wat seer kry, maar dis jy wat met jou gad in die tronk gaan sit.  (roekelose en nalatige bestuur)

Of jy kan wheelie het niks met die debat uit te waai nie, dit gaan oor te veel kere wat ons lees van 'n biker wat dood is, en na die tyd vind mens uit hy het gedink hy kan..........(sit maar self in wheelie / stoppie / wat ook al ) maar toe nie kon nie.

Ek sou dalk anders hieroor gevoel hat as ek nie 2 maande terug by 'n begrafnis was waar die persoon gedink het hy kan bike ry en toe nie werklik kon nie.

mmm ... not sure what the define astronauts did to get pulled into this, but what is pretty interesting is the fact that a lot of folk have missed the point completely.

So, I give a hoot about safety and get told to move along and join Think Bike... considering that not so long ago a number of dwags have passed on, one would think that issues such as safety and awareness (and general cage driver opinion) would be at least something to consider.

So I can't wheelie, but that does not mean I'm griping about it (read my post again and you'll notice that I even said it was impressive). I'm griping that in traffic it's irresponsible (and apparently illegal as someone mentioned). Yeah, most of the dwags out there think "Sjoe boet, dit is kief, ek smaak jou skill" (in truth, so do I),  BUT from a cage drive perspective ... not so much and they seriously out number us.

My point is, kit up, don't act like a "<insert Afrikaans word for a box here>" in traffic, save it for the dirt, so that no one has to read about any more dwags down.

Agreed, exactly the point I was trying to put across, obviously just in Afrikaans though :-\

Ok, so I can't wheelie quite as high as he does, but at least I'm trying and one day .....

Ok, just trying to see if the story I heard is true, but apparently, someone had a rather bad prang in traffic while wheeling this last weekend... the question asked was that it's someone from this thread...

Now, I don't want to start something that has no foundation in fact, but firstly, if true, is the rider ok and anyone else ok?  and was it someone from the WD's... maybe even this thread?

Post by: Nox on June 26, 2013, 10:58:30 am
Julle spreek darem baie bollie oor daardie arme ou uit.

Wheelies kan baie goed beheer word, onthou al verskil is hy is op een wiel, nie twee nie!

Maklike konsep, as jy jou neus hoer in die lig wil sit, draai die throttle en as jy oor Balance Point gaan, dan trap jy eenvoudig net die agterbriek en die bike kom terug na 2 wiele toe.

Kom nou boys, wat is die punt om jare te oefen om te wheelie as jy niemand mag impress nie....

Ek dink daar is mense wat meer bekwaamd op een wiel is as sommige bikers wat op twee wiele ry. Ek het nou die dag `n oomie op sy RT sien weg trek, daar is nie `n manier wat ek voor hom met my arme GS gaan ry nie, die revs juig, dan los hy die cluch in een moment, dan klink dit of die bike gaan vrek maar dan gee die oomie hom weer met die throttle. Net soos jy dink die bike gaan vrek versnel hy, 500meter verder onthou die oomie van sy voet pegs, en plaas sy pote daarop. As hy skielik moet uitswaai of briek, dink ek hy gaan vergeet om sy voete op die vloer te sit. So verskil ons almal, maar gelukkig geniet ons almal ons bikes op ons eie maniere!

Dis cool, almal begin iewers, maar party mense se vermoe is net ver bo ons sin, en as daardie ou dit kan beheer, good for him!

Jammer ek is een van daardie ouens wat somtyds so bietjie in die verkeer afshow, dis darem maar lekker!!! (Moet se nog nooi JHB se spitsverkeer probeer nie, kan taai raak!)

Yep, stem saam - ek pop wanneer ek lus voel; - met of sonner toeskouers, verkeer of nie verkeer, meeste kere kry ek smile en thumbs up van cagers, so 10% mense het fronsies en vingerkies wat waai, maar dis die "permanently indignant" lot, ons worry nie oor hulle nie...

You see, now you have taken it far too serious :spitcoffee:

It's aimed at the reprobates popping wheelies between traffic, not pros on the racing tracks..

(was that at Redstar when Dave Griffin gave us that wheelie show?)
