Be it a car or a bike, getting the thing sideways is one of the coolest things you can do with them. After all, there’s a reason we love watching the Climb Dance with Ari Vatanen behind the wheel on YouTube on repeat. But on a bike, and on grippy tarmac, one would need monumental amounts of skill to both ‘back it in’, or drift the motorcycle out of corners. Since most of us are mere mortals, and not as gifted as we would like to believe, well, we have hitherto failed to deliver cool. Especially on social media.
All that is in the past now. Because now with the Slide School, Royal Enfield has finally put cool well within our reach. And as it turns out, I had the opportunity to attend this maiden ‘school of cool’.
