How to wheelie ten tonnes of Z1300Tue, 21 Dec 2010
Yes, the video may be old (that's Barry Sheene doing the voice-over) but it's still worth seeing. This mad Fin was the inspiration for every stunt rider you've ever seen. Forget the White Helmets or Dave Taylor, he practically invented stunt riding all by himself. It's nice to see that he's taken the precaution of wearing a stout protective crash helmet and some nylon waterproofs. Nice gloves, too.
If you've ever had the displeasure of putting Kawasaki's monstrousy heavy Z1300 on its centre stand, you'll appreciate what Arto's doing here even more.
Where is he now, we wonder?
