Hey. Lookie there. A photographer in the apex and I didn't wipe out. From last Sunday:[QUOTE]

The only way you're going to wipe out going that slow is if someone ran across the road and pushed you over!
And a Modular one color helmet on a Motard! Get with the program! Real Motard riders look like This!

Blaming the photogs for crashes is like blaming the bad food you got at a restaurant on the tablecloth.

Like this, which is actually unavoidable:

If you guys want to see lots of high speed footage from the SoCal canyons. Looks up Johnny5sworld or Adeysworld in you tube. These guys write the book for getting in done. They never cross the yellow line.

I thought all you Cali hippies were laid back! I guess all the smog and traffic and the desert must not be that relaxing!Relax Francis its a Joke! Just like those chicken strips on your tires that they can see from the Moon! BAM You see what I did there. Just when you thought I was being nice KaPOwie I nailed you again!
My ride involves picking at perceived weakness in others because I am insecure in the fact that I am Awesome! I mean, I know, I am, but I sometimes lash out for no reason, at others just to make myself laugh even though others find it disconcerting and mean spirited. Your pants are funny looking also!

Hey. Have you ever seen the movie Cars. You know that animated one for children. Call me crazy, but you just quoted 5 lines from that movie ..... And I don't think you were even trying.

Really you should watch it. My 3 yr old loves it.

(and the clapping jumping guy in my first post ..... It means I am joking.) Douche.

I've always liked the white CBRs. Very nice looking bike. Too bad about the crash though.

I'm guessing that braking in a turn at that point is bad...

I don't think anyone "blamed" the cameraman/woman. Just said they were a distraction.
I'm kinda surprised the law doesn't tell them to hit the road as they would be considered an "attractive nuisance" standing, and parked on the side of the road, some riders parked right on the damn white line in some cases. WTF!

Someone who "gets it"!

I admire the photographer's entrepreneurial activities but they are in denial if they think they and the other spectators (vultures) are not part of the problem.

The bikes that got hit by people spinning off the road should have expected it IMO, as it seems obvious from the videographic and road-surface evidence that the inside of that curve is as dangerous as the outside when drivers and riders are trying to show off.
