Default Just another day

I thought this included footage of Spaceman's tip over but I really can't say for sure.

Is it amateur day in the mountains?

That wasn't much of a turn for crashing.

Must've been a bunch of flatlanders on that road.

decreasing radius with a 0 g section at the end? The bad driving vid below it shows car after car blowing the same turn.

Pretty-much what I was thinking - an "invisible" off-camber pavement-transition or something coupled with a deceptive decreasing-radius. Of course, some of the cars (and bikes!) were doin' Stoopiditity before that spot.

There's another by the same videographer titled "Close Calls Compilation" or something like that, shows a LOT of saves in apparently that same spot.

There MUST be something up with the pavement right there, not just poor riding/driving.

10 to 1 there's a nice bright yellow sign warning of the dangerous corner.

pffft.... warning signs are for nancy panty boys, who needs 'em?


It is kind of odd that that one corner bites so many people, cagers and riders alike that vultures set up cameras there to film the tribulations.
