These tyre warmers are rubbish!

So this guy fits tyre warmers in the knowledge that he'll get more out of his tyres in the first few laps of this trackday. The trouble is, they don't work like he thought they would.

Call trading standards!

Some people should really not be on a motorcycle.

I'm just surprised he managed to keep the bike upright.

Looking at how well he did. I reckon he is likely quite good but absent minded. Do some unplug at the warmer end?
Apparently microwaves are the next big thing!

He's there to make others seem sensible!

Being distracted can happen to everyone. One thing is for sure, he had a very good reaction to keep the sunny side up! Imagine the rear kicking out fast like that when you're totally not expecting it!

Only in Florida (this is Jennings GP) :)

Im really surprised he didn't feel the tyres warmers going round, how on earth didn't they snag on the rear hugger, and jam up the rear wheel.

but more importantly, great save!

Bum clenching moment, but a lesson from the university of life on tyre warmers. Well held though, top marks for recovery.

He did very well to keep it upright...
Perhaps his mechanic is partly to blame.. A good lesson to always check over your bike before riding it.
