Re: Is a burnout considered stunting?

I had a stupid squid friend on a GSXR do a "rolling" burn out a while back, crashed and nearly took some people out that he was trying to impress. That stupid crap is definitely stunting.

Re: Is a burnout considered stunting?

What if you're just testing your bike by holding in the clutch and reving to 11k and it just does a burnout by itself?

hehe... like dragging your knee around a corner at the race track... dangerous feat that is a challenge (well, it is when you started!) and is done to entertain people.

J/k

Burn-outs? I don't really consider it a stunt. I consider it not really brilliant because ANYone can do it.. it's not good for the bike, it's not impressive and it leaves black rubber **** all over your bike. I think you'll find almost everyone on this site unimpressed with tales of burn-outs.

I agree. Plus, tires don't grow on trees.

Re: Is a burnout considered stunting?

Go for it dude...blow it up. Just keep dropping $140 per rear tire. I would call it "show-boating" more then stunting. As most burnouts consist of some dope grabbing a handfull of front brake and feeding it the throttle while not moving. Rolling burnouts....yeah that's stunting for sure, too many things can go wrong doing them. Just my

Re: Is a burnout considered stunting?

I don't see anything wrong with it as long as your by yourself on an unpopulated backroad and your tires are toast anyways and you just want to have a little fun. I've done some short burnouts, (no entertaining) just for some fun factor.

Re: Is a burnout considered stunting?

My :

I did a bunch of burnouts on my 1st bike, after that I have only done 3-4 tops in 5yrs, and nothing like what I did at first. I realized on my own that its just a huge waste of money and a royal PITA to clean up after. I dont think a burnout is a stunt just dumb and I agree with Reaper rolling burnouts on the other hand are stunts for sure.

Besides its not impressive if a Harley can do it.
