Continued from last month;
Doug Domokos who in my opinion was the original one and only Wheelie King was the grand master of this. During most of the 70s Doug was hired by the National and Supercross Promoters to attempt to wheelie around the entire motocross or supercross track without letting the front wheel come down. He actually did this several times. Some riders thought Doug had a special wheelie bike that made this a lot easier. Although Doug did have a bike set up for him doing wheelies it was no easier to do a wheelie on as many of us found out after attempting wheelies on his bike. The doubters were soon silenced. And besides, what professional doesn’t have a special bike set up just for them?

Doug and I were both riding for Kawasaki back in the mid 70s, Doug as the Wheelie King and myself as a motocross and supercross racer. One afternoon some of the mechanics and I were taking a little lunch break in
