Are people spraying something slippery in this corner, as happens on The Dragon? Wondering why people are crashing for seemingly no reason.

It looks to be a decreasing radius going uphill and I think they're just on the throttle too much.

I love when people say they dont care over and they are saying that on a video they posted online about not caring. So obviously you DO care

Darla did take her helmet video down... Yous guys must have left some zinger comments.

She did ask what we wanted... As bikers say, "show me your tits!"
And she did offer a big FU! So FUUFFs.

The guy on the R1200GS at 1:16 knows how to get everything possible out of that bike!

Not geared up nearly enough to judge by his knee. If he'd been wearing leathers instead of jeans he might have been uninjured. Wonder if he was ticketed.

and have we had any girl crashes yet? she doesnt look like she did anything wrong.... certainly wasnt going too fast
Looks to me like she was slinging it over pretty hard just as the transition over the road patch caused a little loss of weight and traction at the front end. She was being too aggressive, not looking far enough round the corner and not reading the surface very well.

Why did that female rider crash in post #194? Seemed like she just leaned into the road. ???

In the slow mo you see the back tire stop moving...

Watching the slowmo it looks like the swingarm slider might have touched down. Either that or she just lost the front, but it's really hard to loose the front on the throttle.

I'm with crofrog.....she put it over far enough to touch a hard part down. She needs to learn to get her butt off the bike in a turn.
