I wish I got pulled over for doing wheelies..... Just because that would mean that I actually could do a wheelie.

let's be a bit more specific here. wheelies are easy. holding and riding the wheelie is considerably more difficult.

If you have to buy parts for your bike every time you do them, I don't think it counts so much.
