Post-count whore - has no time to read the thread but wants to add to it anyway. Probably cross-posted that video in several places. Random insults and one-liners all add up.

He's absolutely right though - that HD crash is highly amusing.

I wish you guys would keep it secret, it's starting to scare me.

BUT, since you guys are practically begging for an answer I'll pretend for a moment that what you want matters.
I was hasty to lump everyone on this site in with a few vocal dumbasses (yes, that's you).

Sure, riders screw up... but that corner and the slower speeds I see some bikes spin out makes me really wonder about how and why so many biff it at that same place.

I agree and have said this earlier. I have not been there either but I don't see it as merely slick pavement. Many of these guys are on sticky tires and are not going very fast nor are leaned over very far They just come unglued at the same spot.

I usually don't like the conspiracy theory but a little soap on the pavement in that area would make for lively videos. ...just sayn'.

Someone would have to be seriously screwed up to do that. I sure hope you're wrong. Not that I have an explaination for it either though.

Thousands of riders make it safely through that corner every weekend day and only a very small percentage get unsorted. I've ridden it many times myself and I assure you it not the pavement (or photographers), it's the rider. Sorry, but the explanation is really that boring...
