Matthew Murray was out enjoying a jaunt on his Yamaha FZ-10 down a Southern California canyon road when his ride ended up launching off a cliff and him tumbling an estimated 250 feet down a hill. The video shows Murray traveling about 60 mph as he approached a left-hand turn, then running wide and sailing off the cliff. He claims his steering locked up and caused him to go wide.

“I love taking corners and doing all of that,” Murray told a local TV crew, adding that he has six years of riding experience, which has left him confused as to what may have caused him to be unable to negotiate the turn. 

The video below gives a stomach-churning POV of Murray’s incident.
