I came across a link to this vid on Thumpertalk (forum for dual sport riders), and it is god damn hilarious! Apparently this guy is the inventor of the Killacycle (ironic name, you’ll see), the worlds (only?) fastest electric drag bike. This thing goes 0-60 in less than a second and hits over 150mph on the 1/4 mile. That is fast.
However, lets talk irony. This guy is a government scientist. He has sunk over $30,000 into building this bike, and is the crew chief when they are racing it. Obviously a pretty smart individual. Why, then, does this idiot get on an extremely powerful bike, without a helmet, and attempt to do a burnout!? He even mentions before it that he “normally doesn’t ride the bike, so this will be interesting”! He does all right smoking those tires, but when he loses control and guns that thing straight into a minivan, I couldn’t stop laughing. Can you imagine what is going through this guys head? Oh god. Its so funny I just want to watch it in slow motion over and over and over and over and over again.
This awesome video sparked an awesome conversation between Deuce and I about how boring out anything leads to more sweet horespower and awesome, yet hilarious results:

[16:46] The Gun Show: and the guy in this article bored his cycle out way to much for his own good…proving there is a limit to how much you should bore out
[16:48] BetterOffAloneSB: agreed
[16:49] The Gun Show: however…it is rare that boring something out should have a negative outcome
