It's a lot of fun to watch motorcycles being pushed to their limits, with riders manipulating machines to do exactly what they want. Red Bull apparently understands that fact well, as it has taken the minimalist approach to promoting the Red Bull Romaniacs Hard-Enduro Rally in Sibiu, Romania, from July 15-19. The video promo is simply slow-motion video of cycles negotiating tough terrain set to music, and it's fairly amazing.
We felt a distinct flutter of excitement when we first saw the 2011 Gas Gas EC 450. This is the kind of bike that tempts its owner to find the most indirect route between two of your favorite remote locations... and the tougher the terrain, the better.
