Big Blue's Burn-out!

After 12700 plus miles on my reliable Metzler rear tire it was time for a new one!

Thought I'd take give the old tire an honorable death.

Re: Big Blue's Burn-out!

Better hope the EPA doesn't see this, I am sure they could come up with some bureaucratic regulation about burn outs

BTW, good test of your clutch, it appears that it isn't slipping at all

Re: Big Blue's Burn-out!

At first glance I thought you were putting the front wheel on a garage door.

Hey, you cheated - you used bleach. (cough-cough)

Re: Big Blue's Burn-out!

4 out of 5 positive comments and one wet blanket. Not a bad review for this site.

I didn't go till "POP" cause I would have had to push her into to the garage on a flat.

I used just water, didn't have any bleach.

My 60K clutch is just fine thank you all for your concern.

Big Blue is such a heavy beast; it still has quite a footprint, even on wet concrete. It did take more than I thought it would to break her loose.

I had read others saying they wanted to do this and pictures were mandatory. All in fun,
watch out Harley Guys, I'm only 1 hour north of Octoberfest!

Thanks to all, glad you liked it.

Always nice to see someone ELSE do that. Very difficult to clean the underside of the fender after that. Thanks for the entertainment!

Re: Big Blue's Burn-out!

Seems to me if you get the timing right, should be able to burn the oil off the clutch and smoke the rear tire at the at same time...... (but I'll let someone else work on that process).

Re: Big Blue's Burn-out!

Bill, that was awesome Dude! I used to do burn outs frequently when I was riding chain drive Honda 750's, but with over 200K miles on 4 BMW "K"bikes I have never done a burn out or a wheelie. I've seen others do it, so I know it can be done, but every time I get the urge to try it I feel my wallet start burning my a$$. LOL

Re: Big Blue's Burn-out!

Love it, My wife watched with me and just shook her head while I sat here and laughed. She says guys are stupid because of the door and the black mark on the drive. It is funny how hard you had to work at it to break loose the Metz. compared to how easy the Harley guys do it with no horse power and cheap Dunlops.

If I EVER lose my sense of "silliness" I think I'll just place a gun to my head and.... out.

Well, burn-outs are all about torque rather than horsepower and at low RPM I think most Harley's trump the LT in the torque department. Also, the LT's first gear is way too tall and the clutch is weak. Definitely handicaps the bike for burn-outs or even starting out on a grade.

Ron, I will be happy to do a burn-out with your LT. That way you can be silly and I can not be stupid! Stupid is only doing this with your own LT!!!

That is for sure. A friend of mine had a Honda 70 or maybe 90 back in the good old 70s and that thing was nearly indestructible and that was with virtually no maintenance. That thing put the Energizer bunny to shame.

Re: Big Blue's Burn-out!

Thanks to my defenders and detractors.

To my detractors, you're getting way too wrapped around the axle on this. Come on, guys! Of course it's stupid, immature and inane, that's the point.!

My defenders have taken this as it was intended, lightly, friviously and all in fun.

Before the rest of you tight-ass BMW types get your Hi-Vis knickers in a wad, (that's a quote I borrowed from our club's newsletter editor) GET A LIFE!!!

'nough said, it a joke, get it! Get a paper bag, breathe into it, you'll feel better!

For those who wish to repeat this, AS ANOTHER MINDLESS JOKE (emphasis added for the tight-asses reading this and getting way too serious about it), use bleach as suggested earlier, maybe even a little waste oil to help our poor weak clutched, weak torqued LT's break loose. You've got to be kidding me. GET A LIFE YOU TIGHT-ASSES SMUG A**HOLES!!!

This last will probably be edited out. I shouldn't write this on a Sunday after my Colts got their clock cleaned and 2 large glasses of wine.

Again, defenders, thanks, others...pack sand!

At least my Auburn Tigers squeaked out another win...War Eagle!

Well, you have definitely increased your juvenile cred even further. :-)

I bet you can't do 10 more burn-outs like that and post the videos. Come one, give it a try.

Dood, step away from the keyboard and take a chill pill. Breathe in - breathe out.

We're all about fun here - it's a place you can come to escape the real world. We're motorcyclists. If the other tight assed pretenders don't want to play along with us, well.....
**** em!

They're all going to die soon anyway.

(I've never seen a burn out video I haven't liked - and personally I would like to see you smoke the RIM right down to the final drive next - but hey, with an IQ of 75 on a really good day - I'm EASILY entertained!)

WELL, enough of me wearing my heart on my sleeve...

Where's Jay when you need him??

Listen here chump. No one stooped so low as to call you names with insults.

Even though you made a complete idiot of yourself raping your clutch and drive train.

You need to lay off the wine and keyboard. As I said, disgusting.

Actually, I was hoping to see enough burnouts to see the clutch smoking, the final drive explode and the drive shaft throw a U-joint - hopefully, all simultaneously! Now that would be a show!! None of this simple little poseur burn-out stuff. We want to see something truly magnificent!!

I want to see Part Two of that video, when the service manager at the local shop almost swallows his tongue hyperventillating when the rider tries to make a "warranty claim"

Re: Big Blue's Burn-out!

I liked it just the way it is. Funny, entertaining, and most of all it's YOUR BIKE. So if you want to have fun, cool. If something happens to the bike for doing this, then it happens. Heck, sometimes things happen when you do everything right. Hope ya had fun and thanks for the laugh.

Re: Big Blue's Burn-out!

I would like to see the video for the ct 90 burnout personally. For those who are saying nay to this video remember, Its not your bike or money. people make their own decisions and have to live with the concequences. theres no reason to rub his nose in it. besides I liked it. Its not highbrow (except for the fact that ist on a bmw) but its still amusing.

93 katana 600 wrecked
82 v45 magna sold (never should have)
80 xj650 maxim sold but not forgotten
99 K1200LT Lovin' it!
any @ss can ride fast, it takes a pro to ride slow... one day i could be that pro.

I think a trail 90 burnout would be hilarious, but only if the tire POPS.

Re: Big Blue's Burn-out!

I'm not sure with 4 hp if it has the cajones.

Maybe this stallion does - at about 6 - and it's in keeping with the theme.

Hey, wait a minute - I'm way to cheap to trash a perfectly good tire.

Come on, Ron, being stupid and wasteful is part of the whole thing. And those little donuts can't cost that much. Now, get the camera ready and get that burn-out "in the can!"

Well, I'm perfectly good with the stoopid part, but my Momma always said "If you take care of the nickles and dimes the dollars will take care of themselves."

Kinda sounds like something Forest Gump would have said - and he ended up a millionaire!

So, it seems you aren't as immature as you were claiming to be...

And I REALLY wanted to see that Honda 90 burn-out...
