attention getter

My friend loves to do this on his 10. I do not like to do these because i am a law abiding citizen. At 20mph you pull the clutch in and twist the throttle. Let the revs build up and then dump the clutch. This will leave a 50ft patch on a nice pice of road. Hold on and have fun.

Sounds like the type to buy used tires.

That thing is going to launch on him or nail him into the ground soon.

I burn up my tires before I am getting ready to get a new one but I keep the front brake on.

All it takes it that tire to catch one time and you will have one worthless POS on your hands.

ya ya ya...

Although I have done that too- burn up old tire- Even with the brake on if it catches, your screwed.

Learned that with a dirtbike at about age 12. Thing caught a root in the mud I was playing in. Bike went front wheel up, snapped the fender off and shot about 4 ft. into the air.

Also watched a Harley "goldwing" land, balanced, on its floor boards on the edge of a pool in Daytona 93.
that guy was lucky- night before they said one went in. He was using the edge as a wall to back up his harley brake- good plan.
Drunk as hell he spent the next hour standing on his seat sufring his bike and listening to the band. When we left the bike was still there.
