OK, this video was posted way back in 2009, and the dumb-ass title—”epic fail crazy Harley stunt riding & drifting practice session—reads like an ADD”-addled teenagers list of favorite tags.
But a buddy of mine forwarded it to me earlier today, and I was pretty impressed with this Harley rider’s skill. Throughout the course of the clip, he does all the standard wheelies and stoppies, but it’s the drifting at the beginning that really blew me away. It’s fluid as hell and almost hypnotic. Of course, drifting isn’t easy—as illustrated by the observer who tries his hand at it toward the end. That’s where the “epic fail” element comes into play… Enjoy.
