    Headed up the hill today from cougar I noticed a bike behind me from out of no where (must have been haulin ass) so I waved him by. Then we get to the twisties and it starts gettin interesting. I was having a lot of fun riding behind this guy, his pace was perfect for me. We got stuck behind a semi for a bit then it finally turned off and we got back on it.
    Then suddenly the dude just fades to the out side of a right hand curve, crosses the oncoming lane and goes straight into the ditch. Rag doll flipped like 2 or 3 times. one of the most violent crashes I've seen in person. Some how gets up like its no big deal! Walks away with just a bruise on his back. Bike was still rideable too. He was on a gsxr. Not sure what CC. I have video of it uploading at the moment, but its taking for ever. :/ footage isn't that great though because of all the shadows.

    Edit here's the video http://youtu.be/3zwz4DWISFg
    Jump to to 11:30 for the crash. Sorry I don't know how to edit for nothin. The rest of vid is boring so may as well just skip it.

    Yet only 30 seconds after the brutal crash:

    "You alright dude....Fuck..."
    "Darren?"
    "Dude Tyler!"
    "Mother F'er!"
    "What the fuck is up dude?"
    "Hey whats up, nice to see you...on this fantastic day...."
    "Fuck I know right? Oh shit I think I forgot to turn my key off I'll be right back."

    Priceless.

    Lol Matt. I think maybe he was tryin to pull me, he kept lookin back to see if I was still there. One of those dudes that couldnt believe I was hangin with him on a "dirtbike" but that's just a guess. When he goes into the shadows the bike flips once and he goes end over end a few times. It looks a lot better if you watch on a computer than your phone.
    Ended up right next to a big ass rock too, he's really lucky if he'd of hit that with a soft spot on his body he'd of been in way worse shape. The bushes seemed to have broke the fall quite nicely for him.

    And had he been injured I wouldnt have worried about my key being on, but he seemed okay, and I've had my battery go dead once when I ran inside my house for a couple minutes to get a drink of water lol
