Just curious, What kind of force does it take to end up with the front end looking like that? How fast into a tree or wall for example?

Re: Hard wheelie landing?

I don't think it's a wheelie either, because the rim's not bent. He definitely didn't hit anything head on either because there's no rash, and the bike's still standing up.

My guess would be that he installed a dampenenerer and didn't torque the stem nut well enough

EDIT: I just noticed it's a 954. Steering stem bearing upgrade anyone?

Re: Hard wheelie landing?

I think he launched it into a ditch impacting upright.

Another great site to visit.
