Epic. So now it's his fault the BMW rider run him off the road.

Who's at fault, using your... Logic, here then?


Same fucking thing, different vehicle LOC. Oh wait... I'm sure he did something illegal before he turned his camera on

For all the bitching and moaning about big rigs and squids riding over the line on the dragon, I'd ride that a bit more sedately. It seems like it's *expected* to find something in your lane there.

If you crash in a corner because there's gravel at the apex, and you're going too fast to correct your line, is it the gravel's fault?

What was the hypothetical again?

I really did try to follow the last several pages of argument but it was soooooo difficult when only one side made any sense and could actually communicate in understandable English.

Hmmm... we're 140+ pages into a thread about bad ju ju on the Dragon.
That stretch of pavement is legendary for its' roadkill.
There's even a shrine to the less fortunate, called the Tree of Shame.

I'm thinking ... feeble as that may be... that if you scoot that stretch of road, you should pretty much expect the worst possible encounter around every blind corner.

Failure to do so places you and others at serious risk.

Clearly, I'm missing something.

Actually, he needs to work on his late apexing, from what I can see.

I don't know about his raw riding skills, but you wont likely stay alive or intact over riding your sight lines on public roads.
Speeding around blind turns is a bad idea anyplace, and a REAL bad idea there.

No problem on a track, or where you can see there is nothing on/in the road, but its a crap shoot with bad odds on such vision limited twisty roads.

So one rider is passing on a blind turn over the double yellow, another is speeding not thinking anything is/could be in his lane.

It is NOT a matter of who's "at fault". It is a matter of what could have been and Should have been done differently to safely arrive at a different outcome.

AGAIN. This rider too is in the wrong part of the lane to set up for a blind corner. Had he been wider he would have seen the truck sooner and likely have been able to keep from crashing.

You can not be that dense that you do not see the difference.
