    I always assumed that it would be reasonably safe to park on the INSIDE of a curve........I guess that's not true:eek1

    The guy in the beat up multi-colored 300ZX was real close to buying that green kawasaki. Was he giving the finger as he drove off?

    I see no reason to restrict oursevles to rnickymouse in exploring the fail-fast that is Mulholland.

    It just goes to show, you can't apply anywhere near maximum braking during maximum cornering! :evil
    The guy would have been better off just continuing on, then pulling over when the cop caught up to him, and most likely receiving a speeding ticket. I'll bet he got a reckless driving ticket AND damage to the bike on that one.

    That curve isn't even that sharp. :huh

    I know some of them are getting their stupid on because there is a photographer there but I don't understand driving thru a blind corner totally on the wrong side of the road.

    Hope none of these assholes ever go where the road is curvy, and I'm glad there are no good motorcycle/driving roads here in WV.

    I love this one - isn't even covering the front brake, let alone applying pressure.

    You'll notice that he had NO trouble going around the guy on a bicycle. :nah

    He MAY have been going fast enough to get a performance award. Bet it woulda cost less than repairs AND a performance award. :nod
