    Luckily this guy had all his gear on.. imagine how rashed up he'd be if he wasn't wearing a full leather inflatable suit..




    Alright.. I'll give him credit for a dude on a harley he didn't bail early.. lol

    I can't count how many crashes I've seen video'd on that exact corner...

    I think I'll just stay off the damn thing!

    It must be my old man eyes, but it doesn't look like these people are going all that fast nor does the corner look all that deceiving (blind decreasing radius or something). What is bringing them all down?

    its NOT fast at all.. I've ridden those canyons.. a lot of the riding speed in this area is 35-55mph. This corner has a slight decreasing radius.. but there are camera's there ever day.. huge poser factor.. I think you end up less then 20mph as you hit the apex?

    I think the squids go down because they're trying to look good on camera?

    Watching these crashes is very educational. Majority of them were caused by either focusing on something or not being steady on the throttle (one was a rider panicking in the middle of the turn and hitting dirt and another focusing on the camera).

    The place is called "The Snake" it's actually Mulholland Highway near Los Angeles.

    Guy on YouTube always films there, his channel is rnickeyMouse

    I'm with Sunofnun on this. That corner is easy at the Snake but way to many Posers trying to show off for the Camera :tard:

    Some of them don't even look like they are pushing it too hard, or doing anything wrong, but the rear just lets go. Tucking the front, I can understand, it's easy to touch the brakes and washout the front, but I wonder if the pavements bad, or it's just that deceptive on camera.

    I imagine at least %60 of the wrecks are caused by illegal gravel...

    I hear it's a RAMPANT problem down there?
