So the folks that drop mattresses, refrigerators, 2x4s, chairs, couches, etc., in the middle of the road are out to get us too?

Who hauls over the railroad track and through those two 15mph turns anyway?

I'll bet the terrorist is someone that lives on 3090 and they're driving all the way to Richards to dump nails and screws to keep bikers away.

Well that explains the nails in my rear Q3. What an idiot doing like that. That explains all the different nails in my tires. I never saw them like that in the road.

I know the day it happen to me was the same day (few weeks back) the Ducati Panigale crashed at that same corner. Looked like he lost it before the corner and ended up tumbling and ended up down that rocky road. I checked the tires and pressure before I rode that morning, got back and lubed the chain then noticed the nails. Have a new set sitting in the garage. Would like to catch the person in the act.

any time you see this kind of activity. You should call the police and make a report. You don't have to give your name of wait around. just pile the up to the side and go on the cops will show up when they feel like it.

The panigale crash was not caused by nails. We were standing at that corner for awhile and I didn't see any nails.

Haha. Right.
Like someone who just posts "there's gravel on 3090". Well no , really? The whole 15 mile stretch of 3090?

Be helpful, be specific, or it's just useless.

So putting a video up with the corner that has the nails is not specific enough? If you ride through the forest any, you know that corner...he was just trying to warn anyone that might be taking a trip through.

Nate, could you please add the coordinates next time....you were not specific enough...
