Saudi Arabia Bike Drift Shows This Man is Not Afraid to Die

This is something we need to see more of. We know some of you guys out there are already drifting on your bikes, and we want to see more of it. Obviously, before we even get any farther into this, I’m going to hit you with that disclaimer that what you are about to see is dangerous and trying it yourself should only be done in a controlled environment in a way that you are as safe as possible. Please only try this if you know what you are doing!

With that out of the way, I have to admit I didn’t really expect the bike in this video to be a Harley Davidson V-Rod, but that fact that it is only serves to make the video that much cooler in my opinion. Sure, seeing a high-horsepower sport bike like a CBR or Yamaha Y series would be cool too, but there’s something about a torquey, loud American cruiser slinging the rear end around like this that is undeniably badass. The rider seems to be just cautious enough to not get himself hurt, but definitely knows how to push his bike to the limit and sling that big meaty rear tire around, drifting across several lanes of traffic seemingly effortlessly.

We have seen plenty of drift videos from the Middle East showing guys in cars and even SUV’s sliding across the highway from shoulder to shoulder – some with terribly tragic endings unfortunately – with multiple passengers and quite a bit of traffic to deal with, showing just how hardcore these guys are. To do this on a bike, though, knowing one misstep could easily be fatal, proves this guy specifically doesn’t seem to be too worried about his own mortality.

I guess if you’re going to go out, why not go out doing what you love? I just hope he loves drifting that bike, because I want to see some more footage of it personally!
