    This is not the curve where this head on occurred. The curve pictured here is known as "Mud." The curve where that accident occurred is known as "Rocket Corner" on the Tail of the Dragon map and "Calderwood Corner" on the DGMR map.

    Yes, that is correct. I just posted that pic to show that photographers are often set up right in a potential crash zone-right on the outside of a curve. I don't have a pic of the curve where the collision occurred. Trashcan did post a pic of that curve.

    That's awesome. I can't imagine what the ride would be like sprawled out like. It looks like a split second after a sniper attack!



    Well, don't. It's just like those miserable psalms, always so depressing. Now knock it off!

    The fail was in the previous picture to this one. The idiot who couldn't hold his corner is about to be pulled over by the bike cop who saw it.

    This has been an eye opening discourse. Apparently because I don't like to see pictures of people getting hurt I am fat, drunk and stupid, and I lack the prerequisite intestinal fortitude to ride motorcycles. I'm truly thankful that a group of people who don't even know my name let alone have ever met me can offer me this amazing insight into myself. Thank you for that, excellent ambassadors of our sport, thank you all.

    Why do y'all keep feeding the troll? It only takes a few clicks to put them on the ignore list, then you only see their drivel when they are quoted.
