SportsBike Drifting

Posted by Tom Ford at 11:42 am on Wednesday January 7, 2009

I understand cars. But I’m scared of people who back a two-wheeler into a corner. I’ve seen quite a lot of this (especially in Supermoto/Speedway etc) but this is basically drifting on a sportsbike. Ha!

    The finest example of this IMO was from Marco Meladri in 2006 – on the final stretch of a storming ride, he took the last left hander sideways with one hand off the bars to wave to the crowd :)

    To a lesser extent than that it’s quite common to get the power on earlier out of a corner. All I can say is that my bike has been doing something similar for the past three days in the snow and it scares me too Tom.

    Yep the video was of Garry McCoy for the ill-fated Kawasaki MotoGP team (who have just pulled out from competition).

    Sete Gibernau wasn’t going to be left out of the sliding fun it seems:
