That's got to feel pretty bad, failing at doing a burnout...
Both been posted multiple times....

That second burnout is totally hilarious, why children shouldn't play with fire.
When a real tankslapper occurs (not a headshake) it's pretty much impossible to do anything, much less the right thing.
The two times I've had tankslappers I just held on for the ride, while trying to apply some pressure to the rear brake after it settled down a bit. I didn't fall either time but I still don't really remember what I did or how I reacted as it started and ended so fast.
When it does occur you don't exactly have time to ponder your options.
I can't really laugh (too hard) at this stuff---call it empathy, I suppose, but I did get a kick out of the kid doing a burnout on his dad's bike, and his friend saying "that didn't just happen, did it"?
Who among us hasn't done something totally dumb-ass and wished they could have just one more chance at re-living the last few seconds?
As for the guy with the tank-slapper, I don't think he had his weight evenly on the pegs yet when the front wheel touched down--could have been the cause possibly? He's the guy I have the least sympathy for--"to be old and wise, you have to be young and stupid." ---what an idiotic quote!!!!
Furthermore, what if his bike had slid into some poor sap standing by the side of the road?

"your dad is going to be so pissed"
then he goes and slams it into the car
