Video: Kane Friesen’s 219km/h stoppie!

Kane Friesen pulls a stoppie at 219km/h. Respect is due...
Via Oliepeil

Canadian stunt-rider, Kane ‘Insane’ Friesen holds the world’s fastest stoppie record, which he set on his 2006 Kawasaki ZX-10R, beating Gary Rothwell’s 156.8km/h stoppie record set in 2002. Kane, who’s longest wheelie was over 19km long and who longest stoppie was over 900ft, lists pink as his favourite colour, Stephen King as his favourite author and ‘Chinese food, in Tokyo’ as his favourite food. And before he started his stunt riding career, he was a professional body piercer. Hmm…

Destroyed? Not really... last record was not Gary Rothwells @ 157km/h but Craig Jones on a Buell in 2003 @ 208km/h. That stopie also happened to get in the Guines book of records as the longest stoppie ever @ 266 meters or 873 feet.
