Jamie Robinson's 12 o'clock wheelie

Ex-British Supersport racer Jamie Robinson has been in LA learning how to master the 12 o'clock wheelie, which involves scraping the bike's number plate and exhaust on the floor, then geting it back onto 2 wheels.

Achieving the balance point is a matter of trial and error - Jamie was getting close but not close enough on his final run when he went for it .... and it ended in a pile of bits and pieces.

Fortunately Jamie was wearing a Knox back protector; "I landed flat on my back and I had no injuries, not a mark, felt like i'd not even crashed".

Now that's product testing!
