watched the first vid a few times.


I am going to say, that the rider was relatively new, (as do others) but that road, during the moments of crash, was probably too much for him to deal with at once.

see the potholes ? what is the railroad track lookin thing? some kind of freeway expansion joint?

anyways, between the scary potholes, road littered with asphalt chunks, the slippery steel railroad track lookin things (and that they follow slightly into his turn) and the turn itself, was just too much for him.

willing to bet that if the road was fine, he would have made it, just panicked when encountering all that . (Hard to tell if he actually does or does not hit the left pot hole...maybe rear tire hit it? cause the rider does bounce pretty well, shortly afterwards.

(Honda Blackbirds, Suzuki RF900r/600rs, and Yamaha Seca II's...nobody knows what they are today :P)

Cold temps and too much throttle

This actually happened to a friend of mine back in California ...

Not only did we end up dislocating his sholder trying to the get the leathers off of him (he insisted because he didn't want the EMTs to cut them off him) but of all places ... he landed in a patch of poison ivy to boot. And yes ... we got some of that on us as well ...
