I saw that on zzr1200.net....looks like Deals Gap.

Notice how the car got out of there real qiuck - they thought the cruisers
were gonna kick their ass.

...some people don't need to ride bikes - this guy proved my point.

hope he's o.k. though

Considering it seems there were no injuries in this incident,..... I feel comfortable saying, I love it! Nice demonstration. Probably thought he was about to earn 10 cool points among his buddies with that pass. Right up till the point when he crapped his chaps going into the canyon. A "DNF" equals "no points" and if his buddies find out he actually did soil himself in the process,.."for-getttabout-it."

Apparently the only control of the bike he's familiar with was the throttle. Lean the dam thing over in a turn or stay home.

That second guy crapped his pants for sure. I don't know how he kept from piling right into his buddy or at least chucking that thousand pound piece-o-crap into the same ditch.

What line was the bike attempting to follow? He didn't even make an effort to follow the yellow thing in the middle of the asphalt. I've been riding for decades and found the lines follow the curves pretty well. Ha ha ha. What a bonehead. I guess he and his buddy realized that joint they smoked was stronger than they thought.

The second guy wasn't much smarter. I wonder if his Mom ever asked him; Just because your friend jumped off a cliff would you jump too?

I'm sure both of them pulled up to the office the following Monday morning in their European Sedans, trying not to spill Starbucks on their nice suits and thinking now they know why their wives didn't want them to buy the F'en motorcycles in the first place.

Having accepted the fact that they're not cut out to be Hard Core, the bikes get sold, the silly clothes (which the homeless wouldn't be caught dead wearing) get donated to the Salvation Army and it's back to wine and cheese parties to pass the time. The only thing left to do now is make an appointment at the laser clinic to have those ridiculous impulse tattoo's they picked off the wall at the parlor removed from their upper arm.

I find it sad that the people in the vehicle found time to make comment but chose not to stop and offer any assistance.

Yeah, they shoulda stopped but...

They contributed to the crash by driving 10 miles an hour and so felt guilty (wishful thinking on my part).
All bikers on Harley's are Hell's Angels and so they feared for their lives.
The downed rider had a ton of friends.
They were young, stupid and probably mentally altered.

I just want to state for the record that...
I have never
...been young, stupid and mentally altered
...thought that all Harley riders carried guns and were not afraid to use them

Notice at least four riders crossing the road without even a glance to the right on that hard corner....lucky for them, Darwin missed a few. First rules of an accident site....don't create more hazards!
