How bout this i was just passed by a guy riding a stand up wheelie and he had to have been doing 150 I was on this rural highway about 20 miles outside of town where all the streetracers go cause us cops pretty much stay outta there and I was practicing different launch techniques and having a friend halfway timing my 1/4 mile well I was close to the end of the 1/4 at about135-145 mph and here comes this honda 954RR blowin by me like I am standing still and unless I was seeing things he was doin a standup wheelie but for sure a wheelie??? Is this possible or am I losing my mind

I would say it is fo'sho! I don't think I'd want to try it though myself. That stuff just isn't for me.:helmet:

its possible but it has tank slap written all over it. u put down a wheelie at that speed with the front tire slightly turned either way, and ur going over. very stupid.

Mike Fields went 150 through the traps at Sac.

That was on one wheel on a Turbo Busa !

He races streetbike shootout . . .

I know I've been well over 120 doing stand ups, so yes it is possible, just hard to look down at my speedo. It is completely necessary to have a damper at that point though, and you have to turn it up when your going to be doing that stupid sh%$t...

frigging front end always comes up in 4th around 125-128mph (uncorrected) when the throttle is cranked, so I say it's an easy thing

Sounds like the gene pool will be getting even more shallow soon.

looking at your mods.. you have a -1 +1 Vortex Sprockets

that will significantly change your speedo read out. Stock is already +-3%

wheelies that are that fast are still being chased. Around here everyone starts doing them and can get going that fast. with the new bikes they are so much stronger that the speed really picks up. I could do a power wheelie on my old nine and run out of gear. Now on the ten everytime im busting in over 100mph before it comes down. not that im a pro. I do uncontrolable power wheelies.lol But I have noticed as the ridders get better their wheelies slow down.

My brother in Law did a regular wheelie on my 10 doing 135 mph, so I see a 150 stand up very possible
