did you see the guys head smack the top of the windscreen when the bike bounced up? How do you like them half helmets NOW?

That HAD to hurt down south too...

I always assumed that it would be reasonably safe to park on the INSIDE of a curve........I guess that's not true

The guy in the beat up multi-colored 300ZX was real close to buying that green kawasaki. Was he giving the finger as he drove off?

I see no reason to restrict oursevles to rnickymouse in exploring the fail-fast that is Mulholland.

It just goes to show, you can't apply anywhere near maximum braking during maximum cornering!
The guy would have been better off just continuing on, then pulling over when the cop caught up to him, and most likely receiving a speeding ticket. I'll bet he got a reckless driving ticket AND damage to the bike on that one.
