I shot this yesterday since I needed a new tire I figured I would dispose of the old one properly!

Nothing short of Awesome!

later, dozer

p.s. glad to hear you and Pops are getting along
Thanks Dozer! And so am I. Things are different now but in a good way so all is good for the foreseeable future.

Remind me to never let you ride my bike.
No worries Louie! I would NEVER in a million years treat someones bike like that and believe me it took some serious risk/benefit analysis to decide if I wanted to do it at all.

Always wanted to do that...but don't wanna tear anything up!!! You can call me chicken

Not a chicken at all. Believe me, I knew the risks and was scared of them, but decided to do it anyway.

I did it on the concrete because the coefficient of friction is a bit less (for smooth concrete) than pavement so it would be less stress on the bike.

I don't want to clean all the molten rubber off my fender. Still cool to watch someone else do it :D

Normally I would agree but since I had to take the tire off to change it, needed new brakes, and took the swing arm off to replace the bearings there was so much room I just hit it with the power washer and scraped it off and it is clean as ever it kinda worked out well actually!

Funny you mention it because I was considering taking the camera off and filming another angle off the bike and then I wouldn't have the helmet on but I figured with lots of really hard steel all around me that I was better off with the lid on.

I was actually surprised how uneventful it is i know it puts a lot of stress on the bike but honestly it didn't feel that bad at all. I Barely gave it any throttle to break it free or keep it going.. Hell, I feel like I'm beating on it more just ragging on it on the street moving.




Very cool indeed!!! That's the proper way to dispose of a tire!! :)
Thanks I never posted a pic of it!
It's down pretty far but I didn't want to risk blowing the tire and messing up my rim so I didn't go too far.

What? No beer bottle in one hand and a topless ho lying backwards on the gas tank?

Jesus..... What's next? Day-glow yellow vests? :D

I've done burnouts back in the day. Never thought to video it.....

Never burned a bike tire down but back in high school I won the smokey burnout contest for the yearbook with a 72 big block 4speed Chevelle with the line lock and a posi. It was sitting on the rims when I got done.













(Yes, I had a Chevy.)
