The UK’s very own Stunt Asylum has been training people how to be two-wheeled asshats for years, but in a safe, sane, controlled environment. Now they’ve added a new tool to their arsenal and I desperately, desperately want to catch a plane to play with it.

They’re calling it a “stoppie bike” and it does exactly what its name implies.

The surprisingly intricate rig has small wheels up front, big wheels in the back, and a catch tied into the rear subframe of the Yamaha to stop the rider from going too far.

It’s wonderful and idiotic and now I’m looking at flights to Heathrow. Dammit.
