Movie burnouts

I hope this is a trick.

A cop in a movie is chasing a bad guy on foot. The bad guy steals a car and the cop confiscates a sportbike/cruiser.

The cop mounts the bike and does a 180 burnout as he speeds after the bad guy.

How do you/stuntmen do this?

Is a lowside likely? How do you overpower the rear wheel so it doesn't grab and pop a wheelie?

put your body weight towards the front. Feather front brake.

ya ft brake controls speed, keep the rear spinning pretty good to avoid high siding, which can be entertaining for rider and observer both, lower gearing really helps as you have more torque to the r wheel and less speed so it is easier to keep from spinning out in a lowside

Causally determined by various factors, only some of which I know about.
