Nice! I have a new mission for my next mountain trip! I've just been assuming that something hard would deck out first.

I wonder if my Full Bores will stick well enough for that.....

I do that spark trick to tailgators by standing on my centerstand. It works great you should see their headlight dip when they think your bike is falling apart.

Nice trick!

Love this! Having someone on your a** grows old really quick. Especially when you have given the cage a chance to pass you but would rather harass you instead.

A cage hanging on your a**? Does not compute.

Hmmm. You can get small titanium blocks on eBay for $20/lb. One of those attached to the center stand would throw a nice shower of sparks.

They won't allow those knee pucks at the track I go to.
Had a Suzuki GS1100 with a titanium block on the center stand. If I hit the kill switch at about 70 mph and held the throttle open for a bit then turned the switch back on the bike would loudly back fire and a big flame would come out of the exhaust. If you could time that right while you pressed down on the center stand the effect was pretty cool. Got peoples attention anyway.

Out of curiosity, how would you attach it?

On a BMW you use an aircraft grade titanium bolt safety wired using top grade stainless safety wire of course.

On a KLR you use a piece of broken barbed wire you found on the side of the road.







Who am I kidding. No KLR rider would ever buy a titanium block. They would just pick up a random chunk of scrap iron they found in a dumpster while looking for "new panniers."

Just don't do that when there is a red-flag warning. Wildfires suck.
