A new computer wheelie game encouraging riders to perform long wheelies comes as a Kiwi rider has caused outrage after posting YouTube footage of him performing a claimed world-first wheelie across the 1km span of Auckland’s Harbour Bridge on a Harley.
The video is now no longer available.
However, it showed the mystery Harley rider wobbling across a couple of lanes as his mates filmed him from a vehicle alongside.
Waitemata Police Sergeant Richard Byrne says the dangerous stunt could have had “fatal consequences” and showed a “complete lack of regard for their own safety and the safety of others”.
There is no word on whether they have been able to track down the rider to issue a fine.
