Try it on an open dirt road first. Just corner faster than you think you have grip for, an get a feel for where you start to slide out, but can hold it together.

Best trick I know is to drop your outside foot when taking the corner. This shifts your weight so you're more over the bike in turn and keeps you rear tire planted better.

Other than that.. just giv'r if you wash out, you went to fast

Find a nice open, loose, flat corner to try on first of all.

Then, ride along at a reasonable speed, then start to shift your weight forward to put more weight over the front wheel, and make the rear grip less. Then, lean the bike, to the left if you want to corner left, or right, if you're cornering to the right. Stick your inside foot out for balance so if you loose the front wheel you have support.

i can drift off the road onto my driveway(its gravel), but i cant do it on a turn without locking my rear wheel wih my brake, do you need burms to do this cause i would have to build oe, our trail's corners suck ass.

Find a nice, high speed corner thats flat and slippery(preferrably sand over hardpack) and enter the corner way to fast. Try to press your inside bar down and drop your outside pedal. I recomend taking your inside foot off the pedal and be ready to dab it if you go to far over.

Hope that helps.

The roads over there are paved with something else. Look up saudi drifting on youtube.

To practice lift up your back tire and 'swing' your tail of to one side using your legs. Once you have that down then slitley pull your breaks and do the same motion but without lifting your back tire.
