When Motorcycle USA finished riding the 'revised' 2008 Yamaha YZF-R6 at Laguna Seca earlier this year, there was no doubt the bike was primed to push the Honda to the brink on the track.

2008 Honda CBR1000RR - Sportbike Motorcycle First Ride
With the yellow over-rev light staring me in the face I grab an upshift. I
start to feel the front-end gently climbing skyward as I motor uphill
towards Laguna's infamous corkscrew, I run the bike wide and to the
outside, setting up for the famous turn. I close the throttle, snag a
downshift and squeeze the tank with my legs as hard as I can while jamming
on the front brake lever, then out of the corner of my eye last year's
world champ and certified Laguna expert, Nick Hayden, snakes through,
rear-wheel kicked out sideways, then in a instant he's gone... All on a
bone-stock 2008 Honda CBR1000RR streetbike.

Watch dirt bike stunts, crazy stunts, bike tricks, and motorcycle wheelies.
Motorcycle stunt riding, sometimes referred to as simply stuntriding, is a
motorcycle sport characterized by stunts involving acrobatic maneuvering of
the motorcycle and sometimes the rider. Common maneuvers in stunt riding
include wheelies, stoppies, and burnouts. Sport bikes have become a common
vehicle for stunts.
A wheelie on a motorized vehicle is nothing new. In drag racing they are
considered a problem, robbing power that could be used to accelerate the
vehicle faster, and many classes
of drag racing use wheelie bars to prevent them.
But those are for vehicles specifically built for drag racing, which rarely
are street-legal, or unmodified from stock. In contrast, since at least the
1970s, some motorcycles straight from the showroom floor were able to be
In the late 1980s and continuing today, motorcycles, and especially
sportbikes, have become lighter and more powerful, and have therefore
become easier to wheelie. Other stunts have also become possible if not
easy with the advancement of motorcycle technology.
Stunters are a controversial subculture of motorcycling. Stunters perform
motorcycle stunts on sportbikes, both on public roads and in private
venues. Some stunters even have organized commercial teams.
