hello, folks.

400-yard-wheelie is a dangerous reckless driving by using motorcycle.A driver moves back as he is lifting the driving bars up so as to do so.
My question is this :
Why is it called "400-yard-wheelie?"

Thank you

    A wheelie is driving a motorcycle or a bike on only the back wheel for either a short distance or, in this case, 400 yards. You have to maneuver the bike so that you lift the front wheel up off of the ground. You are propelled forward by the rotation of the back wheel. That would be my guess in this context.
