    All riders in that video were being idiots. What made the lead interviewed rider "sloppy was him saying "I was just getting ready to set up and commit to my turn when..." (or something to that effect) He was staged almost on top of the center line in a blind corner to "Start" his turn.

    Squid on a motard he deserved to go down for riding like a fool.

    just my oppinion...:1drinkThe BMW guy deserved a BEAT DOWN. :bash

    This... Like a little girl hiding behind a tree playing hide-and-seek running out in front of you... Or errant, unsecured aircraft engines falling from the sky.

    Am I the only on that thinks about fate and chance before I shoot my big mouth off, "it could".

    It COULD have been a fully loaded Peterbilt 359 coming around that curve trying to pass that van... Or a commercial airliner making an emergency landing...

    Are you that daft? It can ALWAYS be worse!





    Don't be. You'll never ride that fast. Specially when it "could be" for riders that don't ride around waiting for bad things to happen to them.


    Yeah, being run off the road by a random chance event. He should have been prepared for "wrong place at the wrong time".



    Now THAT we can agree on.

    I am a good rider - not a great rider.
    I am old and my bike is older and while I have
    played around on the GAP, I won't
    cut corners for speed. If I am riding behind
    the big sport bikes on my ancient GS and they
    start cutting corners to try to get away - I let them go.

    What do you call RANDOM anyway? That looked
    like deliberate sloppy riding pretending to be quick.
    What is so RANDOM about a head on or a near
    head on when you take into account the blind
    curves and mix of riders at the GAP.

    That's about like shooting a gun into a filled
    football stadium and claiming a hit to be a
    RANDOM occurrence.

    No, if I had been that rider, I don't think I would
    have locked up my rear to "lay her down" in the grass.
    The GS is so wide we would have hit and
    at the least probably lost our left legs.

    And wasn't there a sniper in a bell tower at a school somewhere?

    Guess you can tell them it was just random...

    So you have full control when you're randomly run off the road and into a patch dirt of grass?

    :huh Then why compare your riding skills, motorcycle, and a safe bet-rear tires, to his?

    Gosh, you really are that good... :rolleyes

    You know, I don't give a hoot that he laid her down in
    the grass or not. He could have kept it upright and ridden to
    Hades for all I care. He was a lousy rider and a dangerous
    one. He got taken out by another lousy & dangerous rider.

    If you want to run the GAP, keep it in your lane.

    It's "riders" like him that won't keep it in their
    lane and other "riders" who can't keep it in their lane
    who are the problem at the GAP.

    Both BMW guy and the two "featured" riders are complete dipshits. The two supermoto riders are also demonstrate continued idiocy by not realizing they were doing pretty much the exact same thing BMW guy was about 20 seconds before they wrecked. Jackasses.

    Being a frat boy on the streets of South Central LA @ 3:00 a.m. is not a
    case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. It's an act of stupid, just like those guys on the orange hooped scooters.

    It's a public road. Soccer mums in kid filled minivans drive it.

    If it were meant to be a circuit, there'd be a tech inspection, paddock and pit out lane.

    Sober up.

    And furthermore, just what, pray-tell, does that have to do with the LOC BMW rider making him change his course?


    See? You make ASSumptions and they're wrong!

    lol, I heard GS tires do that... Saw it in a vid one time too... I think it was "GS meets KTM around blind curve, but since said vid showed KTM rider clip the yellow line a while back, the KTM rider sucked"


    Or something like that... It's on YouTube:D

    Yes, now post up some ride reports so we can pour all over them looking for self implication or proof you're a shitty rider.


    Hey? Where's those "BMW forks failed" and "BMW GS rock + low fender + grabs front brake line fail" threads?
