Go ride a quad instead and do donuts all day long.

Roost is not something you plan to do. It just happens.

buy a KX 500 and install an MT44 rear tyre. Nobody would ride closer than 100ft behind me. It was a friggin earth mover.

Just sit as far forward as you can, click up one (or more if you have the power) gear, feed out the clutch as you pin the throttle. It is all about wheel speed.

man it just happens over time...., A 125 four stroke isn't going to be throwing as much roost as youd think no matter how hard you dump it.....you might get it to chuck a few rocks though

your way too worried about looking cool instead of riding fast

There ya have it. Concentrate on what's in front of you, leave the rear view mirror on the street bike...

man just put that bad boy in 2nd gear and go in the berm and stop. pull in the clutch and rev like crazy, then pop the clutch and u just might shoot some sand......Don't try this method too much on a big bike because you will just look like an idiot, but since ur already an idiot(no affense) it will suite you well.

I remember this one time (at band camp) I was kickin' up a roost along this gravel feeder lane (in suburbian Africa these are common) and lookin back to see how clever I was and a car comes out of a driveway and I notice that the large dust cloud that I was admiring is now sorta under me rather than behind me. Then I see this big flash of pain as me (in shorts with no shoes) connect with the gravel some 15' on the other side of the car. As I lay there in the dirt bleeding and clutching my ankles which had connected the handlebars on the way over I knew that I had learned a valuable lesson that day:

Always have one of those sponge foam protectors on your handlebars.

Meat (safety first) bomb
