I guess he proved his point; You don't have to be stupid, but it helps. Damn good thing that rod didn't go through a bystander. He won't be doing burnouts with that bike for a while.

If the point he was trying to prove was that he could destroy a perfectly good tire, inhale massive amounts of carcinogens destroy his engine and put the safety of himself and everyone around him in jeopardy...then yes...HE PROVED HIS POINT!

Sometimes that result is what the owner is looking for.
I wonder if he thought about the burns he no doubt suffered from the hot liquid fountain he got all over his legs and them pedal pushers.
Couldn't happen to a nicer jackanape.

We just keep moving

We mostly go where we have to go

He's obviously done that before...many times I'm sure.

That airbag vest is pretty cool, I see a lot of potential there!

My wife has been using those airbags for about 4 years; she is a professional cross country equine rider, and many now wear the vests. She is airborne on a horse about 21 feet on the wide double oxer jumps when she lifts off. The vest cord is connected to the saddle, and inflates when the cord is extended beyond a certain point. Something is going over the jump, but it may not be the horse and rider together--sometimes its just the rider! Spills happen........

Due to increases in the cost of electricity, the light at the end of the tunnel has been temporarily disconnected. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

I saw a Suzuki GSXR blow up a whole lot faster than that. It happened in a dyno tent at an AMA race where people were paying to learn of their bike's power output (guess riding it doesn't tell some people enough). Goofballs running the service didn't have a fan to blow air onto the bikes on a hot July afternoon and as the deceased GSXR hit its stride in about 4th gear, it gave it's parting groan in the form of a tent full of steam.

Based on the amount of time that Honda ran at redline while that fool spun his tire, I'd say props should go out to Honda engineering.
