There isnt even any houses on it, nor road junctions for the 11 miles. There is a sh!t load of corners and state police though.

This does seem to be the prevailing thought process in this country as of late. The caption in the beginning of the video shows that the poster is placing blame fully upon the guy picking up his gloves.
Beat me to it! Yeah, sad isn't it...

Forget kids. What about a deer, multiple deer, Bear, BIG bear, accident blocking both lanes. The list could go on...

Seen plenty of feral pigs. Actually had to jam on the brakes this past June as there were six of them standing all over the road.

Seems like all quiet on the Dragon lately, so:



Look carefully and see its not just the HD rider doing inexplicable weird shit on an almost-not-even-a-bend.

If you are riding on a road in the mountains, you have to watch the road, not the mountains.

Most probably a combination of target fixation and lack of concentration of the task at hand in this case riding.

OMG you mean you didn't see his tire touch the center line once or twice, or how about the death defying cut inside the white line in that 25mph curve, This guy was a total lunatic and should immediately fork over his liscence.The guy filming was following way to closely and was a hazzard to everyone in the state and on top of that his monotone voice was irritating.Riders like this give us all a bad name.
