How dare they abuse the most sacred of all Hondas. I could never put my wing through that kind of abuse. I bet he took half the life of that tire doing that.

I guess 1800 riders would have more sense:baffled:



Could someone please explain what the purpose of a burn out is? I am afraid I don't get what the point is of trying to create some smoke by stopping the front wheel from rotating and then spinning the back wheel, or is it just to demonstrate the lack of brain cells that the rider has?:shock:More smoke, less cells?????:gunhead:

Happy to be enlightened as to the reason. :)

Ah ha!! So I was pretty muchright then :)

It is done by racing drivers and riders, to warm tyres up to improve traction which of course I knew, by experts in the field to earn good money to pay for the tyres they wear out and of course brain dead riders who think it looks cool!!:D

Same concept as fireworks. No practical purpose, just fun and money up in smoke. ;)

Probably not hurting the engine any more than running down the road because it is under a load rather than just reving but tires are too expensive for me to do that.

Besides, as mentioned before, it appears to me to be just plain stupid.

I've been known to roll mine over a bit just to see the looks on zoomsplat riders faces when they get to acting like their zoomsplats are all that.

Not something I do alot...But it is funny to look up in the mirror as you're rolling out of your smoke at a stoplight to see the 2 splatters staring at each other in utter disbelief. ;)
