My friend just sent me this. He was poppin wheelies at the campsite with his son and somehow broke the saddle rail. The pointy bit went into his calf and another camper had to drive him to emergency.
He lives in Canada so doesnt know what "Old Blokes that should know better" means.

Wheelies = cool.

Wheelies = bad.




Can wheelie, won't wheelie.
