Inexperiance + Ego + Wheelies = Doh!
Wasn't me, this came across our "mishap report" that we get frequently in the military.
At 6:30 p.m. in North Carolina, about 15 miles from base, an E-3 was riding his motorcycle in traffic. He had taken the basic rider course nine months earlier. He was making full use of his new-found experience by doing a wheelie in the left lane at 65 miles per hour, all the better to amuse/excite/astonish the surrounding motorists in his section of traffic.
Maybe some were duly impressed, thinking how brave and skillful he was. If so, that impression abruptly ended when the E-3 slammed into the back of a ford truck that was stopped while the driver waited to make a left turn.
The E-3 suffered what mishap reports always refer to as "multiple traumatic injuries" to bones, nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments, his spinal cord and brain. He spent 24 days in a hospital.
