Re: Was this the first guy to circle wheelie???

im pretty sure he was the first, and still is the wheelie king.. i mean, who elese can wheely over 2 cars without even looking like its hard?

the best footage ive seen of him (if anyone knows it or knows a link please post up!!) is him wheelying his bike around a full MX track, up and down the jumps, ive never seen anyone wheelie with that control since?? would love to see someone try to do that again...

if its what i think it is, then i saw it on tv, he wheelied round in a circle and filled up as he was going round somehow, cant remember exactly how, might have been a different attempt at the record that i saw though.

this guy was amazing...
In the course of Doug's 20 year career he has wheelied "HIGH" atop the Empire State Building, wheelied up and down San Francisco's Lombard Street, dubbed "The Crookedest Street in the World," and even passed the Georgia State motorcycle drivers license test on one wheel.

Dirtbike+pizzasprocket+motor in a frontwheel=cheating!
Look at his frontwheel... There is a small motor which spinning it and give a gyroeffect... That's the reason why those wheelies and circs look so smooth.
