Yeah the 7 was badass but it had pistons

I guess you need torque for this kind of driving...

I don't think I'd wanna drift a motorcycle..... When I was 10 I was goin down a big hill on a bike (pedal bike) and the front wheel randomly just fell off and I skidded about 50 yards after going over the handlebars. Even though I have gotten over my slight phobia of going fast on things with 2 wheels, I think drifting one would still freak me the hell out haha....

That video is awesome.... Thanks for posting that up!

Ive had the back of my bike get loose on me twice. its scary as hell. My roommate (who also rides) and I were discussing it last night and thought there is no way i could see myself actually trying to do that. Mad talent

drifting on a bike is ok until your rear wheel gets traction -- then you're about to find out why a highside hurts.

reason #1 why you NEVER come off the rear brake if you happen to lock it up

+1, even on a bicycle, learn that one the hard way.

I drifted it pretty nice all the way around the corner... just going from sliding to traction is a tricky process... my bike got a little banged up all cosmetic fairings) and I broke a few bones but nothing major, damn thing kicked me up 6ft in the air. I was back on the bike a month later. Drifted it again a few times but not as sideways as those vids your posting.

I bet you didn't use the clutch to modulate your traction :p
