Tire Wheel Land vehicle Vehicle Motorcycle its the worlds fastest wheelie competition next month at elvington airfield york, there'll b different classes going for the kilometer records, two wheel top speed guys r there, a uk stunt round, an the short circuit time event for the cars

although i only riding it for 10 mins wen it got delivered, an 30mins before it went for paint, i'll b entering on the vcustoms xr1200 an will spend the two days just trying to complete a full kilometer, i only managed 100m wen i rode it so not sure if i can hold it up for the distance, but i'll die trying lol...

world record for kilometer wheelie stands at 181.5mph by shaun egan of ireland on a gsxr1000 turbo, but av been in touch with irish boys recently who tell me they been tweeking an playing an r hoping to push it further...

if any of u guys come to event for a watch, come say hello, wud b nice to meet everyone, as soon as bike is full ready, i'll post some pics of it on here... niceone tony
