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

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

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.

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).

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

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. :rulez: 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. :confused:
