    Sounds familiar, saw them on Woodhouse moor near leeds uni, sure going up on 2 wheels was their favourite trick, I used to do that going to work

    Going back to my biking days, I'm doing a grass track, halfway through the meeting they would have a wheelie competition, it was something like a tenner for who went the furthest, I'm waiting to go, guy in front of me goes tits up and breaks his leg,,, twat... Couple of weeks later I'm doing a motocross up near Aberdeen, I'm watching a race I'm not in, I'm viewing a difficult section of the track, a very steep almost vertical downhill section with a U turn at the bottom then back up a lesser gradiant, I get speaking to a guy on crutches with his leg in plaster, I ask what happend, he says "I was at a grass track a couple of weeks back and entered the wheelie...........",,, I say I was there,,, I then say it's very rare you see an ambulance job at these events, last time I saw one was at this track, a twat was shitting himself coming down that drop, came off and put his handlebars through his stomach,,, he says that was me...

    I say take up tiddlywinks mate...
