    Starting up a motorcycle sitting on a shelf yeah that is always a great idea having it in gear and letting out on the clutch even better. Doing a burnout and falling off the shelf, Priceless. Maybe not quite old enough to be where alcohol is being consumed

    Well it might be after that spill. The propensity of some people doing things most would consider just plain dumb never ceases to amaze me

    When I was young and poor I learnt a trade, and after many years of hard work Iím not young anymore.

    We are all in agreement. Who drops the hammer with no where to go? Most rice rockets don't really have a throttle, it's more like a On-Off switch
    If it been facing the other way, torque reaction might have kept it up there.
