just signed up from northern va - funny/sad story

I been to the forums a couple times, but never sat down on the comp long enough to post anything....
well i took care of that today and with my leg messed up and a hand with alot less skin guess ill have alota time...

what i did was so dumb i thought id post it with my intro...
I PUT TIRE SHINE ON THE BIKE!

yeaaaaah i know freakin stupid...my brain was just off... cuz i was washing my car and bike together and just kept doin the same thing to each at the same time...

needless to say i went down haaaard on the 1st curve out on the main road (my 1st time down too in 2 years of riding)...as i lay there watching my bike spinning away it hit me i remembered applying the tire shine

anyways i got a yellow/black '01 GSX-R 600 no longer spotless with a full hindel exhaust and a PCIII (that i dont know how to use lol)...
i just ride for fun when i have time...just trying to increase my knowledge and meet people from around the way that are weekend riders also

oh yeah any ideas on how to get that crap off the tires?? burn-out? would some dirt or gravel help??

wow dude that was an epic failure. dont sweat it we have all done stupid shit....and we usually pay for it. i've never used tire shine, but i think maybe wash the tire and use some sandpaper like posers do to get rid of the chicken strip

i seem to remember someone putting diesel in....did a quick search but couldnt find a link...but its about as dumb as that

OUCH

....sounds like you've already added some dirt and gravel!

I once put armor all on the seat of my dirt bike. Realized it might be slippery so I did'nt use much....found out,... it don't take much.....

hmmm, I think I'll try tire shine on my bicycle (peddle bike) and see if i can drift it a bit. Thanks for the idea!

I just really want a bike with a turbo, because their are those times when you pull up too a stop light next to a cop, and I think a really loud PPTTTSHIIISHHHHHHHH would make his day. =P
