I'm of the same mindset.

Those who don't probably don't have an interest in , but that doesn't mean it isn't awesome.

Everyone has their own cup of tea i suppose.

Pennywise FTW!
This video is when we first got into wheelies, we were probably only about 20 years old then, so yeah it was all about wheelies. Garrett is now still all about wheelies and is a pretty acomplished stunt rider, all the stunters in houston know him. I am still currently addicted to wheelies and have to ride them at least once a day on my fifty. But to those who have never experienced the feeling of having a bike completely weightless on one wheel, you wouldnt understand. Its really a mental game of how much longer, slower and in different ways can I keep this front wheel off the ground, we wont get started on stoppies.
Ive said it many times before - WHEELIES ARE MORE ADDICTIVE THEN CRACK-
Garrett hasnt been on this site for a few years, maybe this thread will bring him back.

To use your analogy: just because you can doesn't mean anyone cares to watch.

Too keep using my analogy:
Just because people are doesn't mean people have to watch either. I'm pretty that the "" are doing it because that's what they like to do and aren't too worried about other watching.

You may not see the point or the fun in it or feel it's overplayed and that's cool. You don't need to. It's just not your cup of tea.

Thats why I do most of my "" in an empty parking lot by myself, and the fun and thrill is still there. But you know who loves to watch it, all the kids in my neighborhood, oh were talking about wheelies now, just to clarify.

sticking with the analogy, the have FILMED IT, and then proceeded to POST IT ON THE INTERNET. Which leads me to believe the do, in fact, think other people want to watch them . Now, if they had posted it in a place designated specifically for other , it'd be one thing. However this particular video was posted to the general populous. Not to mention that out there on the street, these people are in traffic because they think everyone wants to watch them .

The didnt take your finger and press it on this thread though, and then pry your eyes open to watch it, and then demand you post in this thread about their performance.

Now that's just a assumption right there.
