Rider Caught Doing 238 km/h Wheelie

Wheelies can get riders a warning or even a ticket by themselves, in case they happen to run into a cop who does not appreciate moto stunts on public roads too much. Doing a wheelie and speeding will certainly cause unpleasant consequences... but doing a 238 km/h (148 mph) wheelie in a 90 km (56 mph) is definitely turning out nasty results.

Well, it happened with a motorcycle rider aged 31 in France earlier, but in an even worse way. The guy had already lost his license and was under an administrative penalty for being caught speeding with more than 50 km/h (31 mph) above the legal limit.

This fact did not seem to deter him from popping one more wheelie and was flashed at the above speed. Because the court ruled the circumstances as aggravating, his bike was confiscated and he will most likely do some jail time, with a hefty fine on its way, too. Via Le Repair des Motards.
