Area such as made up road, car park required for 2-3 motorcyclists with road legal (silenced) motorcycles to practice wheelies. Modest fee paid if required. Frequency: once or twice per week.

The hard part is making the 2-3 shift without going over backwards.

Can you post some videos....

Hiho Tonty,

If you sort this out I'd be interested in hoisting and holding the perfect 'minger' before I try it out on the Prom des Anglais on a Friday night.

cheers,

Jamie

(PS will you also be attempting to build a 'pyramid' - police rider style?)

In Germany if you ride around on an unsilenced scooter the fine is bigger than the cost of a scooter. You rarely see the loathsome things there...

The noise from unsilenced motorbikes along the corniche d'or from Mandelieu to St Raphael is so unbearable (esp on Sundays) that I ended up selling my house in Theoule and moving. I've nothing against motorbikes (I have owned dozens of them) but the majority of bikers here seem deeply selfish people, judging by the number who use de-restricted exhausts. It puts me off getting another motorbike - I don't want to be associated with such people.

I am so glad you said 'silenced' .... as the teenage kids doing wheelies on UNSILENCED bikes are one of the things I loathe most about this place. 

You are obviously responsible and considerate - I only wish more were like you.
