The new Guin­ness World Record for the long­est wheelie was last week set at 500 kilo­me­tres by Ja­panese ‘Wheelie King’ Masaru Abe, rid­ing a 125cc Yamaha Jog scooter for over 13 hours on the back wheel, re­fu­el­ing both bike and body on the move. The pre­vi­ous record of 331,02 kilo­me­tres was set al­most 26 years ago by Ya­suyuki Kudo. The world’s fastest wheelie, set last year at an eye-wa­ter­ing 343 km/h, still stands.
