Blaming the photogs for crashes is like blaming the bad food you got at a restaurant on the tablecloth.
that my whole point you douche . I am going slow enough to see the turd who just biffed and/or is coming at me in the wrong lane.
Like this, which is actually unavoidable:
If you guys want to see lots of high speed footage from the SoCal canyons. Looks up Johnny5sworld or Adeysworld in you tube. These guys write the book for getting in done. They never cross the yellow line.
As your sig quote says "Ride your own ride"
Another testi one from Ca!
I thought all you Cali hippies were laid back! I guess all the smog and traffic and the desert must not be that relaxing!Relax Francis its a Joke! Just like those chicken strips on your tires that they can see from the Moon! BAM You see what I did there. Just when you thought I was being nice KaPOwie :eek1 I nailed you again!
My ride involves picking at perceived weakness in others because I am insecure in the fact that I am Awesome! I mean, I know, I am, but I sometimes lash out for no reason, at others just to make myself laugh even though others find it disconcerting and mean spirited. Your pants are funny looking also!
Hey. Have you ever seen the movie Cars. You know that animated one for children. Call me crazy, but you just quoted 5 lines from that movie ..... And I don't think you were even trying.
Really you should watch it. My 3 yr old loves it.
(and the clapping jumping guy in my first post ..... It means I am joking.) Douche.
This thread just get dumber and dumber..... jeez
C'mon! More vids before it gets kicked into the basement!!

I've always liked the white CBRs. Very nice looking bike. Too bad about the crash though.
I'm guessing that braking in a turn at that point is bad...
Pics or it didn't happen!
I don't think anyone "blamed" the cameraman/woman. Just said they were a distraction.
I'm kinda surprised the law doesn't tell them to hit the road as they would be considered an "attractive nuisance" standing, and parked on the side of the road, some riders parked right on the damn white line in some cases. WTF!
well it WAS a gorgeous bike.....
Someone who "gets it"!
I admire the photographer's entrepreneurial activities but they are in denial if they think they and the other spectators (vultures) are not part of the problem.
The bikes that got hit by people spinning off the road should have expected it IMO, as it seems obvious from the videographic and road-surface evidence that the inside of that curve is as dangerous as the outside when drivers and riders are trying to show off.
Same as above. But learning how to embed. GoPro footage of the Snake.

looks like he used the rear brake too.
Looks and sounds like he was on the throttle, not the brakes.
Just needed more throttle, and more countersteer... Flattrack style!! Get that tire spinnin and driving you through the corner, you'll be fine!
If I see a hot girl on the side of the road, get distracted, and crash my bike, I don't say "It was her fault! Look at how she's dressed!" :huh
It's my job to keep my focus on the road.
I could understand blaming them it these guys were standing on the side of the road with strobe lights and air horns, but they're not, are they? If a crowd of motorcycles, riders, and photographers is too much for my "focus" to overcome, I should either slow down a bit, or take up stamp collecting instead.
I wrecked into the back of a car staring at some tits in a white T-shirt one afternoon. She ran over and gave me a hug when I told her it was her fault.
That's what I thought too. Went back and looked and his brake light goes on right before he biffs. Maybe he pulled in the clutch and the engine rev'd a little.
Either way he's a doofus. That poor bike.
Pictures, or it didn't happen.
