yeah i see that seam all the time.....i hate that corner !!!! ive seen a couple people almost eat it on that spot.

when i drive by that section, there is always on the road and uneven road...

glad to hear he is relatively ok. and thanks for the text updates!

i havent gone back to check other threads, but I take it this is the ramp that keeps turning motorcyclists into lemmings?

im not trying to joke about it, but if everybody knows of this entrance, and everyone is careful of it, knowing it is dangerous..

1. why are there still swan dives left and right?

2. why have WE not done anything about this? maybe its time we get the facts and take it forward to the city, photos, statistics..or something. even if its a new lower speed limit on that thing...SOMETHING. no joke, maybe a yellow sign with bike over cliff or some .


I do not know the rider, but Godspeed for recovery, thruough what could have been a situation much MUCH worse. But he is alive, so no glooming too long on the "what ifs" !
