    Red Bull or Dead Fool?

    I don't drink any of the current energy drinks but I do want to thank all of you who do. Your dollars go towards producing these ever so entertaining promotional videos, Thanks! Just don't try this at home kids.

    This would be fun on the TW if not for normal tour bus traffic.



    I bet Ken would tell us to come to New Zealand if we want scenery to play in without all the crowds of China.
    That is a 1200 hp twin turbo 4 rotor Wankel in that Mazda MX5 if you are curious.

    Watching Red Bull's Rampage years ago got me thinking of the potential dead fool/Red Bull link.
    These guys are both gutsy and skilled, amazing so few get killed...

    They have a little more cash to play with since Toby Price won the Dakar Rally today on the Red Bull KTM team.

    I like them too Fred, I was the team leader on the water rescue team for this one. I get some really great assignments from them, the whole Red Bull organization is great to work for.

    Miles is one of the coolest guys I've ever met. He has the most positive attitude and truly enjoys life to the extreme.

    I wouldn't exactly call those drifters "fools".
    They are consummate professional drivers in top of the line equipment, making lotsa money, smoke & noise and having lotsa fun!

    If you think a TW would be fun, you should try a Supermoto some time on roads like that...yee haa!


    I had that little bike for a few years and it was a stone blast...great track day bike, especially on a tight track.
    Most fun was tricking sport bikes into a "run" on a twisty road...Bye-Bye!

    Absolutely! Supermoto destroys supersport any day, on real-world roads! A road like that pictured in this video would be amazing on an SM.


    On a totally unrelated "note" (pun not intended, haha), I really like the song in the first video: Linkin Park - No More Sorrow! I especially like the instrumental in the beginning, and the way they sort of add layers, up to 1:05 - amazing sound! I could listen to that all day.
