I guess safety is of no concern with these guys.. helmets maybe??
Oh, I get it.. they must be rebels or something..
They're above the law.
The laws of physics don't apply to them, man.

Flat dirt track racing on motorcycles is about as close as you can get to drifting on a motor bike

LOL!!! BRINGS BACK MEMORIES!!! About a year and a half ago me n my neighbor had these awesome bikes that you pedaled backwards to depress the brake. Back then I lived in Texas and it would rain alot. After it rained (or during) me n my neighbor would start at one end of the street and race all the way to the end. When we got to he end we were flyin so we would put in our brakes and SLAM our rear ends would pop out. Prolly one of the frickin scariest things Ive ever done. Bike drifting rules. But from what it look likes our little stunts werent as crazy as thos japanese dudes.

assout is right. Dirt track racing is pretty cool too. You should see what happens when the rear suddenly gets traction mid drift. It isnt pretty.

Motorcycle drifting been round forever. Flat tracking, Ice racing and one other I can't think of now. I think the bike thing rules.
To see those Japs and their crazy sliding machines gives me a
Woody.

HAHAHA YES I DRIFTED MY BIKE ALSO!!

No special Bike Is needed..It's Just like a car..Cause the Rear To loose Traction while turning and you will need to countersteer to correct ur angle for the turn..I have done this alot on downhills when i was younger (BEFORE I HAD MY LICENCE)lol.
Just lock up the back while turning and you will see...
"driftingBikes""Also Motorcycles do Drift or (motar)
I seen them with spiked tires going around a hockey ring on ESPN.Crazy..Anways I only had rear brakes on my Specialized Phat boy Cruiser BMX bike , so when i would ride down the hills in sf and came to a conner I would Drift it =)
Talk about showing off at a young age!! lol

Oh yea I never wore a helmet..=)You wouldn't imagine it's easier to drift a bicycle then a car IMO.. ^_^

I do that all the time on my BMX bike. It really helps to get a good tire in the front but also a good one in the rear. Those crappy Walmart tires chunk if you try to drift them. And if you do it on wet algea or fine sand you can actually lock the tire then give it a hard kick on the pedals and it will spin the tire (caution: this can cause the bike to spin out very fast so be careful). Another thing is if you get a good drift going at around 18mph the bike will slide out then the bike will almost fall flat to the ground like you are falling but it only falls to a certain point then stops. It feels really cool and you can hold a drift for 50ft or so.

I wouldn't even attempt that. I know I'd probably end up with broken bones somewhere.

I have only fallen like 7or 8 times. The worst was when I was doing like 16 or 17 and I pulled a good long one then when I let off, the bike rotated like a full 180 and so it was sliding backwards and it flung me back onto my back. I rolled a good 15 feet.

It sucked but the worst was I was trying to show off and all my friends saw it happen.

Actually, Bike Drifting just about saved my life once. I had always done that, riding without hands, and bike ramps with my friends. We would take our bikes, get brand-new pads in the back (no coaster-brakes here), and skid all over the place... getting up to about 25 MPH sometimes and locking the rear (I used weight transfer too, even tho I didnt know what it was then) I also used it on these nice downhill switchbacks in Germany.
Well, anywho, I used to ride my bike to and from work last summer because it was only like a mile, and it was good exercize, but the ride home was always the best, cause it was a nice long down-hill that i would occasionally hit about 45 MPH on (yes, I had a helmet, but thankfully never needed it) Well, one of these times I was going downhill at about 40, and a car pulled out in front of me from a parking spot without even looking, I just instinctively locked the rear wheel, slid into the oncoming traffic around the a$$hole, snapped the rear wheel around to the other side, and barely missed an oncoming car. It was some scary a$$ $hit there, but the slide was awesome, and it left a great signature on the pavement. I never want to do that again tho... it was just that I had experience with it that I avoided the cars.

BTW, i wonder how fast those guys in the pics are going...?

couple of years ago i was sliding around my friends house (no helmet, im too cool for safety hahahahaha) trying to see if i could do a 360 (idiot) so i was going super fast, slammed on the brakes, whipped it around, then flew off in a spectacle on face meeting asphalt. My back bent over me real funny-like, my face/head bashed the road, and hands, elbows, and knees had all kinds of scrapes. Luckily i got up and walked away, lucky i didnt break my back the way it bent. those were the good ol' days.

I've seen video of this stuff...they aren't just locking up the rear guys, they actually ride them out. Those kids are nuts.

As for motorcycles, check out MotoGP and pay close attention. You will see some pretty butt clentching, white smoke, bike drifts quite often. Those guys step out the rear like it's part of their body. (Rossi kicks a$$)

I'm dont mean to brag but thats nothing compared to what me and my friend do, hopefully i may be able to get some pics up tomorrow of the insane drifting we do. lets put it this way i've nearly got a 360* spin down. We do it at this abandoned(sp) gas station with really freaking smooth concrete so when its wet the old oil and smooth surface it literaly becomes like ice, kick a$$ stuff!

only matched by out shopping cart drifts, buts a whole nother story...
