Aug. 23 (UPI) -- A couple cruising Florida's Turnpike captured video of a motorcyclist standing on the back of his bike while performing a high-speed wheelie.

A video captured Monday and posted to Facebook by Alejandro Jimenez shows the motorcyclist standing behind the seat of his vehicle with the front tire suspended over the road in a wheelie maneuver.

Jimenez said the video was captured in the Turnpike's northbound lanes near Doral.

Such high-risk stunts are nothing new for the Turnpike, but Florida Highway Patrol spokesperson Sgt. Mark Wysocky said they are dangerous and illegal. He said the rider would be ticketed if identified by troopers.
