Streetfighters UK and its members are always looking for new, and legal ( cough cough Mr Policeman ) ways to test our machines and our balls when it comes to engines and rubber and there is certainly no better way to do that then to join in with the insane nutters that are the Wheelie Boys at Straightliners Events, the best being the Guinness Book Of Records World Wheelie Event. The fastest 1km on one wheel with brass ones the size of the Empire State Building!.
With our own grown Stu Roberts, Alan Halman and Dale Partington entered this year, and of course the members in tow to keep the beer cold and the BBQ hot, made the journey up to Elvington Air Strip in York to test just how far they could push it and then some!. Unfortunately for Dale, someone forgot to mention to his Mrs that it hurts your knees when you fall on them so Dale had to bow out and watch her sit in hospital for a week, but is looking to return the following year.
Stu and Alan however, competed with no resistance to opening full throttle and choking on the odd fly that dared to risk entering the flight path of the wheelie and top speed categories alike.
Stu certainly flew the flag proud by getting his official ticket " wheelie ok" to prove that one wheel certainly does go faster than two.
