Thread: S1000RR Burnout Test Results from SJBMW

  1. #31
    I win.


    I think we can all agree that the S1000RR is an awesome machine, whether clipping apexes, burning tires, or riding on ice. There are four tanks on the bike: gas, oil, coolant, and testosterone.

    thanks for playing, rob.

    fish out.

    okay, i'm done busting your balls. the key point is that you should embrace all things moto, rather than just those things that you think are cool or done by people you think are cool. be tolerant. open your mind and heart and harken back to the days of your youth when everything bike-related was cool. Okay?

    Thanks.

    Your friend,
    fish
    You're cute when you're being silly.

    Let's see, embrace all things moto..

    I'll get right on it this weekend.

    Putting spikes on a new superbike and taking it out on the ice is the kind of thing I don't see any other dealer having the stones to try. The video you saw was first attempt, wait a week after some adjustments and you'll see plenty of turns.

    Anyone can unbox a bike and do smoky burnout behind the barn. Surely you can agree that part of embracing all things moto might lead to burnout on yet another burnout.

    Kinda like yet another trip to bike week. How many times do you need to take a week of your moto vacation time to see chrome and g-strings? I don't begrudge anyone the experience; it's something everyone should do at least once, more if you like it. Move on when you get bored.

    I used to go to Bike Week when I thought burnouts were exciting.

    But, will there be an ice burn out?

    Isn't it?

    This has been fun but I'm off to go racing down south.

    Nothing like a little racing on a bike I've never ridden; I bet my butt will "embrace" the seat a few times.

    Fish, this has been fun. Let's continue to compare videos next week.

    Enjoy your popcorn, you're ready for the superbowl early.

    Nope.

    Racing a G450X this time. Not as far to fall.

    actually, since the HP2 falls on it's cylinder heads, it falls less far than the single.

    but, twice as hard.

    i know how you know this.

    (just no yard sales, please)

    When the laws of physics are violated the actual distance from my butt / ribs / head to the ground is less.

    somehow that makes sense.

    you know, these outfits look vaguely similar to the rallyepro 2 suits...

    Besides displaying some awesome riding abilities the video is clever marketing, too. Getting the word out to the Sporty crowd by letting them see the bike up close and not just sitting on the showroom floor.
