The Australian, who recently sat out part of his own outdoor adventure challenge in Tasmania ostensibly due to Red Bull's fear of injury, rode at the rear of a Ducati 2-Up machine at Queensland Raceway.

At the controls was his countryman Troy Bayliss, a former MotoGP rider and triple Superbike world champion.

"Some things need doing," wrote Webber on Twitter as he published a photo of himself and Bayless mid-wheelie.

Bayliss replied: "You (Webber) were a top pillion and ripped it up solo as well."

During the 2008/2009 pre-season, Webber badly broke his right leg in a mountain biking descent.

He said earlier this month: "I'm not going to wrap myself in cotton wool.

"Formula one rules my life for most of the year, but I am going to go away, train and have fun doing it and nobody is going to stop me."
