Doug Domokos was better known to his legion of fans as "The Wheelie King." Domokos' uncanny ability to balance and ride a motorcycle on its rear wheel, and his natural showmanship, earned him a worldwide reputation as one of the premier motorcycle performers of the 1980s and ‘90s and landed him in the Guinness Book of World Records.

He turned out to be a pretty famous guy.....

Doug was always an adventurer ... and this lead him to his motorcycling career. He died following his passion ... just as we would all script it ... just too soon! TJG

I remember senior awards Doug didn't miss any days of school at all in high school. When they called his name for a special reward he wasn't there.
