1. Hey everyone, We’re going to start a weekly email to surface interesting threads in the forums. No worries, you can easily unsubscribe if you don’t find it interesting. If you’re like me, it’s nice to have someone willing to poke around a big community like ours and find the most interesting stuff. Saves time and I hate missing something great. It worked really well when we had someone discovering the best photos for the home page rotation back in the day. And if you have something fascinating to post, maybe this email does everyone some good by getting it noticed. Let us know what you think when you get it. Your feedback will make it better as we go (thread). Thanks! Baldy & rudy1220

    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
