There are a lot of amazing things that you can do with a motorcycle, as vehicles go they excel at almost everything; acceleration, braking, climbing, jumping, you name it. Most impress me and make me proud to be a biker, but the one thing I just loathe seeing is a motorcycle doing a burnout. Burnouts are wasteful, dangerous and totally unremarkable, unless things go wrong.
If you disagree and just gotta prove yourself a total idiot by attempting a motorcycle burnout, here are some tutorials and training videos to help you along the way:
No Safety Gear Required: No helmet gloves or protective gear, after all, you’re not going anywhere so that stuff is way too hot anyway. The objective of a burnout is to off-load the rear wheel and spin it up to a hundred rpm or better, thus creating a terrible smell, waste of fuel, damage stuff and totally prove you are one cool ass.
Preferred Attire: Flip-flops and a T-shirt seems to be a favorite for burnouts, casual street clothes and maybe a baseball cap are also acceptable.
Minimum Requirements: Any motorcycle (the more expensive and powerful the better), one or more spectators plus one complete moron to twist the throttle.
