Motorcycle Drifting, Part 2.Fri, 13 Jan 2012
Today’s Friday Fun Video comes courtesy of the marketing department at Icon Motorsports. Following the success of their first motorcycle drift video, featuring Nick Brocha on a stretched Kawasaki ZX-10R scorching rubber with Jim Guthrie on a Corvette-powered Mazda RX7, the guys set out to one-up themselves. With this video, I think it’s safe to say “Mission Accomplished.”
This time around, Brocha is joined by Ernie Vigil and they’re riding modified Triumph Speed Triples. Chasing them in this Reno-911-esque scene is Dan Brockett playing “Officer Dan Brockett” in his 550 hp, supercharged Ford Mustang Cobra. What follows is nothing short of mesmerizing — a testament to the skill of the riders, driver, and video editor. It should go without saying that this video was performed by professionals on a closed course and with proper supervision. Please, just enjoy it for its entertainment value and don’t attempt any of these stunts at home. If you do, you might end up like the guy at the end. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
