Drifting

Well, having seen a few videos and such I was curious about drifting a motorcycle. I might be able to think of how to do this myself and Im sure I could with trial and error.... although I probably won't. Although I figured I would ask and see if anyone here is any good at it and what tips / advice they can give about how to drift and keep a measure of control over what they are doing.

LOL speaking of which, I posted in that thread just two above you, and was pointing out how cool the drifting vid was... thats where this idea kinda came from.

Get you a 'stunt' bike.. find you a large grassy area, or dirt... get the control down then move on to the less forgiving and much more...tempermental surface. :-)

i drifted at oak hill, to the point where i was completely sideways leaving skid marks with the front and rear tires. the end effect was me and the bike flying 10ft in the air.

sounds like a jackass movie in the making.

i wouldn't try it.....unless you're willing to possibly break a few bones. it's something some riders can't do even after 10-15 years of experience. it's a dangerous practice my friend......and if you're gonna do it. do it with a dirtbike in the dirt. try it on a big bike on asphalt.....and we may be having another RIP thread.

just my honest opinion.

I wish I had my crash on tape, I drifted about 60 yards before going off road, made it 3/4 of the way through the turn.
