Wheelie on a 100 cc gearless scooter – does it sound absurd to you? Or, think about a stoppie on a street legal 100 cc Indian bike. Few people never stop dreaming stunts even though they live zillion miles away from pro-stunting. We have seen their acrobatics on bikes - White Helmets, Doug Domokos, Travis Pastrana, Ryan Capes or Robbie Maddison. A perfect touch down after a jaw-dropping jump over hundreds of feet or an eye popping Biscuit Eater or a Cliff Hanger ride, we worship those stunt shows greedily. Meanwhile, what go unobserved, most of the time, are loads of hard work, commitments and natural talents. We try to imitate those stunt-gods leaving technical knowledge or safety measures back home. So thrill ends up sending shiver down the spine. Do have a look.
1. Bike stunt By Naven Pappaly
Biker is trying to do a bounce wheelie. He was in his regular shirt and trouser with no safety guards. Probably (video is not clear enough) he is riding a 100 cc HH Passion or similar stuff with just stock road-safe front-suspension. He hasn’t modified the bike not even changed stock tires. Lack of enough grips on dirt caused the bike to skid. Result is quite clear.
2. Funny Bike stunt in India
It’s a toppled stoppie. Funny indeed and no less fatal too; this accident might have cost the biker lower part of his spine. He was riding one of our regular 150 cc street-legal fancy Japanese bikes. Probable reasons could be insufficient front wheel breaking and poor body weight shift. Add to that wrong timing and lack of road grip. He even didn’t care to save his back. It’s horrible.
3. Bike Stunt Accident in Kerala
This is a real LOL. A man in his half-pulled up ‘moondoo’ is trying to copy a wheelie on a 100 cc gearless scooter; and that too on his backyard jungle track. You have to praise him for his guts. The funniest part is, even knowing that he flopped, he was not ready to leave the scooter alone. So, scooter dragged him along instead. This movie can really pass itself as comic relief.
4. Motorcycle Crash On Road
This is more serious stuff. Men (we are not sure as they were in helmets) were in proper safety clothes. However, the leading bikers tried to mix racing with stunting. That does not make a right cocktail often. While the track was perfect for racing, it was too whirly for serious stunting. He probably lost balance and tried to regain by stretching legs. However, he failed to control the bike but safely ejected himself. Safety measure kept him out of harm’s way.
5. Threesome Wheelie bike Crash
This is a crash invitation to fatal accidents. A wheelie with threesome on a bike might sound and look spectacular but surely logic-defying stuff. It was already too much weight on rear-wheel and a 100 cc engine was trudging at its best. What else you could expect than what you just witnessed?
6. Bike stunt at Kerala
This is another 100 cc LOL! We can’t believe our eyes. With a loaded pillion, he was trying a wheelie just by revving his 100 cc bike engine! No weight shift, no power revving, no serious offroad tire or brake and no basic safety measures. We thank God, they fared the misadventure safely, at least on video.
7. Bike stunt in India
This is arguably the funnies stunt video in this series. Reason is surely the lack of co-ordination between our desi movie maker and his actor. They chose a no traffic country road and an auto-rickshaw appeared just like out of the blue. However, biker managed a perfect stoppie no doubt. But his stunt scared the auto-driver enough, who nosedived to a roadside bush. Best part is victim facing the poor biker off the guard.
8. Kerala Bike stunt – wheelie crash
It must be their guts what drive them to do these stunts. With a heavy pillion, biker tried hard to make a wheelie. He managed to perform too but, expectedly, lost balance at the end. A loaded pillion can’t let you balance body weight. This fact seems too heavy for them to understand.
9. Biker wheeling accident
The man shown in this video was not satisfied with first wheelie. Tried too hard second time but that went off the roof. He was revving too fast but his bike was not heavy enough. He also failed to shift enough counter-weight to front wheel. When he released the rear-wheel brake, bike lost its balance and toppled backward.
