Popping a Wheelie at 218 MPH

Occurred on May 21, 2017 / York Elvington Airfield, UK Info from Licensor: “I was a motorcycle stunt rider for many years and was one if not the first person to put high-speed superbike stunts on the world map. I was the first person to ever do a kilometer long wheelie at over 200mph a world record. Then 209mph wheelie record, then 218, which was a new record but a few days later I was told it was not official as it was only a practice event. After that I have not been back since. The record, in my opinion, will get to around 225mph and I don’t think it will get much better than that. I would like to be that person to do this speed but if it happens I’d hope it to be in America off possible. Never say never.”
