FRIDAY FUNNY: Motorbike and rider end up tumbling down grass bank after stunt fails. PLUS – video

biker’s bungled burnout

A motorcyclist made a mess of his attempt to perform a burnout stunt and found himself rapidly back peddling before getting flung down a grass bank.

Thankfully, the rider was quickly back on his feet after his spectacular mishap when a green Kawasaki Ninja accelerated straight into him.

Tyre marks on the road suggest he may have successfully had the bike spinning round in circles previously but whoever was behind the camera captured his failed effort for posterity – and it has now been seen by more than 300,000 people worldwide.
