Ok, I’m going to let fly an opinion here that may tweak some people the wrong way. Basically, motorcycle burnouts, unless there is a slick tire involved or some sort of racing about to happen, are lame as hell. Seriously, just not that impressive. If the thing is running on nitro and there’s a tire the size of a small child on the motorcycle, we’re in. If you are in Poland and you are going to nose your Suzuki up against a tree and let fly, that’s lame.
Now, style points are certainly awarded for setting yourself on fire as this guy did. The placement right next to the port-johns was really key as well as was the dumping of beers and various liquids to try and quench the flames that were consuming the bike. Hell, the poor guy even used his vest at one point but it seems like someone yelled at him not to do that and he shut that idea down quickly.
There could be another entire discussion had regarding the guy’s haircut but we’re not going there. So then the only real question that remains is how this whole heat induced party got started, right? Clearly the tire shreds and a belt or a chunk of the thing must have whacked an oil line, fuel line, or ignited that cleverly hidden bag of acetylene gas stored there for safe keeping.
I realize that the motorcycle is the guy’s pride and joy and all that stuff but this is pretty funny. He does not seem injured but his Suzuki sure seems to have come out of this one with a black eye! We sincerely hope that Ghost Rider Jr. is back in the saddle…and not doing this again.
