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.
