How bad is it to shoot pedestrians with my carby SS?

Does doing this mess up the valves or anything? I used to do it all the time on my old 1984 Interceptor, but haven't dared on the SS, since I don't want anything to go wrong with it. Any advice much appreciated (also, could someone embed this video in a reply?).

Kind of a dumb idea, no ? Another way to get people to hate motorcyclists.

Please say you're not serious.

I am—I don't have a clue how to embed videos. If you could I'd be much obliged. Maybe it's an issue with Chrome, but HTML doesn't seem to work.

My guess is Doc's Duc is less willing to appear a killjoy as you are to appear a moron. There, that's what I think

If I had a 999R then it'd absolutely be a dumb idea. Those valves are tax.
