Heartbreaking moment when ‘idiot’ motorcyclist falls off his bike while trying to do a wheelie on a roundabout
Heartbreaking dash cam footage captures the moment an ‘idiot’ motorcyclist falls off his bike during a risky stunt on a roundabout.
The show off motorcyclist was spotted on Feb. 26 attempting to pull a wheelie on a slip road approaching the roundabout in Lincoln, East Midlands.
But he lost control of his vehicle and crashed painfully onto his back on the road, narrowly missing nearby cars.
He was then seen driving off after getting back on his bike and having to swerve for another car.
Rachel Smith, 49, captured the incident on her dash cam as she drove down the A1 to Lincoln.

Mrs. Smith said: ‘I was just at the roundabout and a man pulled up next to me and decided to do a wheelie.
“He fell off and surfed the tarmac, then got back on his bike and rode off.
“I thought the bike was going to crash into my car at some point – it happened so fast and I thought ‘did that really happen?’

Rachel Smith, 49, who captured the incident on her dash cam as she drove down the A1 to Lincoln, said: ‘I just thought he was an idiot – why do a wheelie on a roundabout’
She added: ‘I could just see it out of the corner of my eye – I was afraid the bike would crash into my car.
‘It happened at the Black Cat roundabout on the A1 – I drive up and down Lincoln a lot, it’s a well-lit roundabout with good lanes, so it’s usually fine.
“I just thought he was an idiot – why pull a wheelie on a roundabout?
“When it happened and he was floating on the floor, I thought, ‘I just want to go home, now I have to call an ambulance and make sure he’s okay.’
The 49-year-old claimed the rider was not wearing any motorcycle gear and was wearing only jeans, a hoodie and a helmet, adding that ‘he must have really hurt his butt’.
Ms Smith said: ‘When he got back on his bike he almost crashed into the car in front of him, it was like a You’ve Been Framed moment.’
