why didn't i think of this

from cbrworld.net

Quote:
On Sunday night, I rode with some friends to watch a fireworks display. When we arrived there were a bunch of other bikes.

This guy on a Kawasaki takes a long sparkler, and bends the end of it like a hook---so he can put it in his exhaust---without it falling all the way in. He lights the sparkler and puts it in the exhaust pipe and starts his bike.

He reved his engine around 5-6 grand and sparks shot out about 2 maybe 3 feet. Then he starts bouncing it off the rev limitor---sparks were shooting at a constant 6 feet, it was awesome. Until the cops told him to knock it off.
I've got a bunch of sparklers, I think it's time to experiment later tonight

Those sparklers burn at like 2000 degree F. Be careful.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."
