The longest no-hands motorcycle wheelie is 580 metres and 81 centimetres (1,902 ft 32 in), and was achieved by Arūnas Gibieža (Lithuania) in Vilnius, Lithuania on 3 September 2022.
The attempt took place on a 5 lane road in the centre of Vilnius which had been closed since the evening before. The stretch of the road was 850m in total and flat. The road level was pre-approved prior to the attempt.
The title was achieved on Arūnas' first attempt, which was the longest of three attempts. I rode in a jeep alongside the vehicle.
The event itself also hosted a formula one car, drift racing drivers and other stunt motorbike riders, 26 in total, even though it was only Arūnas who took part in the official attempt. It was well attended, free for the public who lined the streets, they expected 20-60k people and I imagine it was closer to the 60k figure. It was part of a wider free cultural event called Sostines Dienos which is held across the capital, Vilnius every year.
