500km: Masaru Abe Smashes World Wheelie Record


 Masaru Abe is the self-styled Japanese Wheelie King, who has smashed the world record for the longest continuous wheelie.

He was up on one wheel for a jaw dropping 500.5322km in a bid that took him an astounding 13 hours, five hours longer than it took him to surpass the previous record, 331.0195km.

He began experiencing back pain just two hours into the ride, as I'm sure any of us would, but that didn't stop this nutter. He spent most of the last hour screaming in pain, but persevered to break the 500km mark. Respect and just a little fear of a man who can do that.
