As a follow-up to the last one I posted. Here is one running all the lights.
That's my take. A lot of these corners can in fact be taken safely on the wrong side and still have enough time to react to a stationary object in their lane. What they won't necessarily have time to react to though is an object moving toward them, especially if that object is also driving/riding like a douchebag (although if they're douchy enough maybe they'll pass each other, both on the wrong side!).
Maybe, but any idiot (and there are quite a lot of them pictured in here) can straighten out the curves using both lanes of the road.
It doesn't even take very much skill (some but not a lot) to get around the corners and stay in your lane, even going fast.
I just don't get all these twits pictured all but deliberately driving their cars, motos, whatever off that road. It isn't that difficult.
Why go to a challenging road then eliminate most of the challenge?
Yeah, I know the definition, I just didn't see a girl in that pic. Maybe it is the shitty phone screen. :what:

Tight pants, girl face, ponytail, stringy backpack. I know that's not 100% conclusive nowadays, but I'd say it's a safe bet...
Passenger does not agree with you
The curves are ment to be ridden, not straightened out.
When you guys are standing by the side of the road do you ever take a count on the percentage of vehicles that are not in their own lane? Just curious. I know the pictures are sort of biased towards the fail side, but what is the ratio?
I am lucky enough to live near and ride one of the best roads in the country (US 550 from Durango to Ouray). There are quite a few switchbacks on the Ouray side that are impossible for semis or large motorhomes to stay in their line. Cars and bikes are mostly in their lane. I guess I have never spent time just hanging out on the side of the road, but in my years riding that road I don't see that many lane fails.
The risk factor is quite severely upped on US550. Those are some serious dropoffs, so people are far less likely to ride over their head and find themselves pushing to the point of getting that far out of shape. You also don't see the same number of tourons visiting from FL and MI. I also didn't see a t-shirt shack or any killpeoples when I was out there last month.
Girlfriend, wife, mother, sister, whatever.....
Will somebody please feed her??
The bike rider must have some money left over after blowing the budget on riding gear. :huh
That ain't lack o' food, that there's lack of exercise. Skinny-fat is the new hotness.
That dude is so deep in the friend zone a GPS may not get him out.
That looks like Juliette Lewis
that thing must look like a plane landing at night!
Nah, she doesn't look high enough.
If I were riding with a guy in knee-high stockings, I'd be minimizing contact as much as possible too
Call me a fashion FREAK! But that has to be two female riders!
NO REAL MAN WOULD EVER WEAR SHORTS WITH HIS KNEE HIGH's !!!!!
I might believe you, apart from the Adam's apple...
Just want to clarify that most of the bug-eyed dicks from Nebraska go to the REAL mountains in Colorado, not those baby ones back east.
Looks like compression socks. Some *ahem* big-boned folks wear them to aid circulation. I play rugby and know a few large people.
They still look gay.
