An amazing bike and technology. Yes the driver did have a mishap and was not intending to move the bike but it rocketed forward anyway. He is a long time rider, engineer, and racer BTW and not your typical showoff as the prior poster has implied. Really pushing the envelope with this machine.

Yea he is a credible guy for sure but it looks obvious to me that he is burning rubber purposely, as do everyone else that saw it and also do the posters on youtube.

Yes, he was, but he still had not intended to move the bike... Still, it was an error in judgement to get on a motorcycle and do that.
