I know everyone is curious about what happened, and wants answers.

I looked through my GoPro footage and when group 3 went through that stretch, the sign was already down, but there were no marks in the road. GoPro was mounted to the left of my tail section, so I don't have a good shot of the shoulder to see if he dumped it in the gravel. Looks like he hit ~6th turn indicator sign after the bridge, and there's another few of them before the turn straightens out.

There's a decent sized drop off there, and plenty of overgrown weeds.. I am not surprised we didn't "happen" to see anything when we weren't even looking... especially since our eyes were pointed much farther through the corner. There's a decent amount of corner left at that point.

Yes, I was able to drag him over there. He used to say "That's to far for me" because he lived in Stafford I finally got him over there that night and we had a great time. Thanks again Mark for such great hospitality.

If he hit the 6th turn sign that means that him and his bike went over the steel guard rail?
