145 mph (233 km/h) Wobble Win

Wobbling is a dangerous even in the life of any biker, and there are a lot of riders who died after crashing due to losing control of the bike.
While improperly balanced wheels tend to send the bike into wobbling even form lower speed, sometimes this phenomenon can occur due to more discreet causes. Sometimes brutal acceleration lifts the front wheel a bit and it can cause a wobble effect as it regains a firm grip on the ground.

Whatever may cause wobbling, failing to retain full control of the bike ends up in a crash whose severity is directly proportional with speed, and sometimes the traffic around the bike.

To limit this nasty phenomenon, many riders instal steering dampers on their machines. These components absorb the kinetic energy of the handlebars trying to get out of control, and help the rider keep a straight line.

The force of a wobbling handlebar can be very serious and having a firm grip and powerful arms may be critical. In any case, if you've made it safely through a high-speed wobble like the guy in this movie (no steering damper), you can say you are a very lucky guy. And please have a damper installed soon.
