Will the bike tend to swirve to the right or left? Any safety points?

start off in your driveway without holding the front brake and 50 feet in front of you leave your feet down lean forword rev it up and let out on the clutch.

On wet pavement, just downshifting and gunning it will spin the rear wheel- even at 50mph. Not exactly 'burning rubber', but something I enjoy playing with on our rare rainy days in Tucson

To be honest, I like to draw black lines down on the road with my little Volkswagen but there I just push the hammer down and it happens without clutching 'cos the power is sufficient to do so.
I recently tried it on the V-rod and decided afterwards that I like my bike too much (and work too hard for my money) to do this again.

Simply the simplest of tricks. Freestyle 101. Cool too.

The best way to start learning is to do it with front brake locked. Revs above 4k whatever the number will work with stock rubber. Do not "ease off the clutch" as much as just dump it, keep your feet on the ground always until you learn to do this with ease. If you don't just dump the clutch the learning curve will be less steep. It may be scary at first since you've never done it before and don't know what will hapen. Trust us :rolleyes: ! The rear wheel will just spin. Do not let it hit the rev limiter. Firm right leg will keep it straight. After that you can start doing any variations. I like best the rolling burnout at 10-20 mph. Better coming out of a wide corner. Watch out for cagers. When you have it "measured" try the front brakes during the burnout to draw whatever on asphalt. The V-Rod may not be the easiest but certainly not a difficult motorcycle to do this. Those 200 Metz sure do stand to a lot of abuse but ANY tire will not last long during this kind of rubber burning. There will be a lot of melted rubber sticking to the fender. If you keep it short lived :rolleyes: and below 8k bike should be safe.
