He did look like he dropped his elbow and went to full throttle while the bike was leaned over fully. Practically any bike with 100+ hp would have spit him off.this guy would have prolly still crashed, even with TC!! He was running wide anyway:banghead
It is a dangerous turn in my opinion. There is often debris in the turn from cars entering the roadway from the shoulder. The turn is off camber. Spectators & photographers in the shoulder are a distraction esp for newer riders. Cars unexpectedly exit/enter the shoulders of the turn.ive seen so many idiots eat shit on that turn...its the easiest turn in the world too.
its perfect radius (never pulls in or out) it has a perfect camber that loads your suspension perfectly, you can see clearly through the turn, its slightly uphill so you dictate the speed, theyt pavement is perfect and grippy (specially when sunny)......but numbnuts after numbnuts take it and display an array of ignorance and rookieness that almost always lands a handful of them tarmac surfing in front of everyone watching.
The other problem is the morons coming down hill...crossing into the uphill lane because they dont know how to keep a bike in line while it gains speed on them, sending the poor bastard coming uphill into the dirt and ditching it before hitting the hillside...while deuchebag disappears downhill as if nothing happened.
sorry.....i just cant stand Mulholland now days, used to be so much fun.
I've never been there and I've outgrown it.I counted 4 "encampments" (for lack of a better word) with Sportsmobiles, motorhomes and scores of people egging riders and drivers on whilst advertising their photo businesses like "rockstorephotos.com" and variations of that same theme. I have outgrown that whole scene.
