Thank you so much for posting this. I had my wife watch it. She will never complain (as loudly) about my back seat driving again.

That video is a Dorki favorite. You may hear references to Sammi walking around the paddock.

His nice way of saying it's been posted before, but always nice to be reminded of a truly great video.

Ironically the bike kept going kind like it was shaking the stupidity off of it.

We see the wheelie part on the beltway in PG county now and then. Organ donors in training. The last wheelie I did ended poorly... ran into the back of a baseball cage at the old Fairfax City High School. Amassing how far you can deform one of those before it spits you and bike back out into the parking lot

TR's??? I'd think they would be in A-1 condition, as they've been suspended in an alcohol solution for the past 45 years
