Tires must be pretty cheap where you are! Neat videos, tho'. Suggest you might want to get your tire wet FIRST, like the drag-racers do, to reduce any traction that might cause you to launch or wheelie. :badidea:

Drag racing is my weekend hobby. What you didn't see is on the second burnout, I did "launch" and kill the engine. That part got edited out. You can see I back up over a little burnout mark.

Hey Motopsycho, your post in the technical discussion #14...abnormal tire wear has me wondering :confused: You said... "Do not use Pirelli Angels. Just a warning. 2200 miles is all I got out of them...and they are @ssholes about warranty or replacement...They claim I was too aggressive with the bike...their exact words...Over the phone...Couldn't believe it." Your Go Pro vids are ...well...you know...:huh:

This is the first burnout I've done with this bike. The Pirelli's were put on before a long trip, and rode about a hundred miles after I got back from the trip. I'm not that stupid that I would do burnouts then complain about how long a tire lasts. Give me a break here dude.

I'm just amazed anybody pays that much attention that they would have caught that. Anyway, general community approval is just something that Harley Davidson riders strive for.
