Awesome stunt, wrong venue

Dear Editor,
I saw a young fellow on a motorbike — actually, I heard him first because it was one of those off-road bikes with not much of a muffler. He popped a wheelie from down the hill beyond my view and held it for at least 100 feet before disappearing over the hill, front wheel still in the air. I thought, “That would be an impressive feat, were it done on an action movie set, or a track set aside for showing off horsepower and daring.” But where I saw it was not a good location. It’s a busy intersection of two streets, commonly occupied by elderly people on mobility scooters, bicyclists, kids and dogs playing in the yard, joggers and dog walkers and it’s an ambulance route.
