    I am confused by the comments about this one.

    The water isn't moving, no stones in the way, pavement smooth to make for an easy ford, tires good tread and also clean, and it appears like the middle of summer. Clearly this was a much more intentional stop.

    Isn't this just a water stop to let the bike cool off, rest and get a drink????????? :rofl

    I was riding with Doc when this happened. The slab was SUPER slippery. There was a coating of slime a 1/4" deep that you can't see. He was hurt pretty badly. Three ribs broken. It took three people to lift the bike because the footing was so bad.

    Why? :scratch

    Not passing anyone.

    To straighten out the turn? What fun is their in that?

    I like to stay right side of DYL unless passing. I think I'm missing something here. :hmmmmm

    That's distorted. A telephoto lens compresses distance. He probably has enough road to set up for the next turn.

    'Tis indeed a Warrior and no, he doesn't have enough time to get set for the curve, nor did he in the previous curve which put him in his current, way off line, position.
