Question on burning rubber

I was bored so I started doing burnouts on my R6 (stock tires). I'm not getting a lot of smoke from my tires, its just kinda melts away and diggs a big hole in the street. Is there a certain type of tire that smokes better or what?

Pour dish soap on your rear tire, then try it

I hear bleach works good for makin' smoke.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Kinda related story.... At a recent sportbike rally near me, a dude showed up with that tire polish stuff on both the front and back tires of his Busa. Its his first bike and at the time he had been riding for a week. Can we say dumbass!!!

<---- Sky http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v8.../FIREdevil.gif As of 5.25.05 my bike has 28,000 miles. (Goal of 40,000 by the end of the year.)

On the 10R board I saw a pic of a dude who Armor-All'ed his tires to a bright shiney black. I wonder what it felt like to lean the bike...

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

+1...your tire is spinning too slow.

Any one ever burn tire down to the rim (sidewall and all) like the stuntshow guys?

"When in doubt, use full throttle. It may not improve your situation, but it will end the suspense."
