Isn't someone rolling over 1000ft.? I think it's Thew Blankstrom from 1096. I haven't been on stuntlife in quite sometime so my memory could be faded.

I saw today too! thought it was really cool!
I just dont understand how it possible.
Im still new but thought is to get the back up you have to be hard on the front brakes. but wouldnt that slow you down way to fast to be able to ride 873'

Imagine that feeling as a new rider who'd never ridden anything but an EX250. :D


Yea, that was my experience on the XB9L. Oh, that and the second gear power wheelie.

fun bikes. Very fun bikes.

That is not the longest, one of the guys down here in FL, Matt Gorka (spelling) pulled a 937ft one. I have the vid somewhere i think... would have to look for it...

I also have seen him pull some extremely long ones in person at a few shows, as well. Insane.

Yes there are definately people rolling stoppies over 900 and even over 1000 feet, but they usually don't care to do the required steps to have the stoppies certified as world records. I was in Iowa the weekend that Thew broke the world record and brought the title back to the U.S. with a 749 ft. run, unfortunately not too long after that, somebody over in Europe took the world record back. Now it looks like the bar has been set even higher.
