What Motorcycle event have you attended last?If not you should.Below article talks about Sultans of Sprint a European Motorcycle Event.
The Sultans of Sprint is a get-together of bikers all around Europe with the sole aim of showing their skills with their custom sprint bikes that are powered by 4 stroke air cooled cylinders. Normally, we would expect that since it is a biking event, con-testers (Sultans of Sprint) will be ranked according their speed, performance and power, but there is more to that.
In order to be the acclaimed Sultan, you’ve got to add more to your game in terms of style and creativity in general because all of that will be rated as well. Even the painting on your bike will get bonuses too.

The bikes that are used to participate in this competition are 1000% custom made. The reason simply being, every rider has a skill set which are unique to themselves. No rider’s talent will be identical to another’s. So every bike is customized so as to suit the biker’s talent. Moreover, it has been proven that the default settings of bikes with air cooled engines will be no match to the customized ones.
This idea was nurtured by the renowned biker, Sebastien Lorentz who had a passion and craving for speed and was always after competition.
