Cool, but.............

Besides the tires, does anybody know what that does to the rear brakes? Here's a hint: BAD stuff.
I wonder if his mommy buys his toys?

bike tires, how much tread is left after the cords? Are there multiple layers of cords? Gonna go toss some new tires on my bike, and finally get rid of these damn GP tires. After two 150 or so mile trips, they are flat in the middle, like I did freaking burnouts or something. Anyhow, I want to do a nice burnout and get some pics to make the tires exit. I've done big burnouts before on my F3, and on a GS500, but the tires had tons of tread.

Sorry gotta say BORING! :)
The car just sits there motionless and there is smoke pooring from the rear tires.

I like watching a burnout as much as the next guy, but that was lame. At least with a bike you watch ppl do rolling burnouts and you can watch them write stuff on the ground and stuff. In fact bike burnouts are rather eductional :D - you can see the gyroscopic force in effect even though the bike ain't moving (forward at least).

LOL... I think almost all burnouts are cool... I couldn't explain why, but I do.. yeah you can do more interesting things with a bike, but I give this burnout a thumbs up! If you have some cool ones on a bike, let's see 'em!! I love 'em all!!! :)
But ya gotta agree, that's alot of freakin smoke... he roasts those tires.. not something you see every day!

Well I don't have any of me. I'm a rider on a budget. I try to go through as few a tyres, engines and sprockets as I can :) Ahem. No I don't need to replace one of my fork seals on the VFR ... why do you ask? :D
Hey it's still under warrantee too :) 50/50 warrantee though. - but in my defense it was only held in place with insulation tape in the first place. And the oleo isn't leaking any oil at all (yet).

I got a few mpegs of a guy by the name of Garry Rothwell doing all sorts of stuff. He commands it and the bike does it - he says wheelie, the bike says "how high sir!". Look under the bikemovies section of www.bikepics.com for all the Garry Rothwell ones if you don't already have them. Legend.

Anyone who can stand a bike vertical on its front wheel IN THE WET is ... well pretty damn amazing! :D
