Did that just happen?

So I'm doing my usual boring commute up the 101 north in the left HOV lane, traffic moving well in both directions (speed limit 65 mph) when off in the distance I see something odd coming down the southbound HOV lane. Too tall to be a m/c, too narrow for a car or truck. Closing speed is pretty quick but enough time to see some dude doing a wheelie.

What? I've seen plenty of wheelie videos but never of someone doing one at 65 mph for an extended period of time and certainly not in the middle of morning rush hour traffic.

Please wish me well for the rest of the day, this could be a strange one.

It may be stupid, but is fun to watch, from a distance of course...
