More so just to keep the motor excersized.. I geared up and let her warm up.. I guess a little anticipation from not riding in 2 months, I get to the stop sign and of course as usual, there's the teenagers in a car giving the signal to "raise up the front end". Now, I refuse to do this most all the time, but I guess the energy and love for my bike was built up and I just figured I'd pump the clutch and make a nice take off instead of a wheelie. Well, to my surprise, I accidentally accomplished something I've been wanting to learn to do. A rolling burnout. Not the kind where smokes everywhere, but just a sweet launch with about 15 yards of spin and I was in full control. I got those goosebumps and thought to myself, I love this bike! It's my biggest stress reliever.

It's too bad my wife saw it out the window of the house and had a few words for me when I got home...

Nice, I can't even get the front end to come up more then a few inches (No ED Jokes please :wink: ) Let alone spin the tire at take off. Next season I might try clutching it up vs power on. Also loseing a few lbs might be a big + as well lol.

Haha, nice story. I too usually don't show boat for others. Everytime I get tempted there is always a cop 2 cars behind me or across the street waiting.
