      wheelies I've done - 0 that I wouldn't be ashamed of.

      Kilometres - 50 thousandish?

        rats.. i should have included number of times busted doing wheelies as well

        then we could calc avg number of wheelies per km ridden and chance of getting caught and perform risk analysis

          I said over a thousand :o
          I may be talking out of my ass, but I'd say I do at least two or three every time I go out, rarely less, sometimes a lot more. And I ride pretty much every day, and have been doing wheelies for ~18 months.

          100 may be a little high on reflection, but it's definitely many hundreds

              i used to be like that.. if you arent practicing them all the time its not safe

              i was thinking that once upon a time, it was quite common to see bikes wheelie off a set of lights, dont see much of it nowadays.

                  It doesnt work because you can't see who picked which. But I've probably ridden 30-40 000km, and done a few hundred wheelies. I'm like Ben, i do a few nearly every time I'm riding, and I ride daily. Pretty mucht the only time I don't wheelie is when it's wet.

                    0 . I manged to unload the forks and skip a couple of times though.

                    6000km.

                    On a wheelies done per 1000km ratio, that works out to.... 0.

                      too much risk of getting your bike impounded and losing your license for 6 months.

                          Sensible motorcyclists don't do wheelies. I'm sensible.

                              i became paranoid a while back and stopped.. i reckon it would have been about the same time the cops started encouraging people to dob in hoons... you know if you are on your way to work surrounded by the same cars everyday and wheelie off the same lights everyday it only takes one wowser to get your plate :p
