You Go Where You Look
On the "Tail of the Dragon", on October 16, 2012, a bike crossed the center line and crashed into an oncoming car. Both vehicles were totaled, but both men are reported as "okay." I offer this video as an illustration of the fact that, on a bike, you go where you look. ANYONE can make a mistake. The toll when one is made involving a bike is usually higher than anyone wants to pay.

Truck Accidents Compilation Winter 2013-2014
Icy road truck crashes compilation 2013 with original sound only. http://roadfail.altervista.org. Please be careful on the roads! Never consume alcoholic beverages before driving. This is the most frequent cause of serious accidents. If you drink, use a non-drinking designated driver, a taxi, or sleep over. Follow street signs and traffic lights, but use your judgment too. Don't try to beat red lights. And expect others to try to do so, so give them time to go through, particularly trucks that have trouble slowing down. Always stay at a safe distance from other vehicles. A general rule is the farther you are from them, the safer you are. Trucks are a special hazard. Give them extra room. They cannot see other vehicles as well as you can in a car. If there is an accident between a car and a truck, the driver of the car will be the one most at risk. Icy roads can cause you to lose tire traction even more so than when driving a car in the rain, making them one of the top causes of car accidents. A number of drivers lose control of their cars and get into accidents when the roads are icy. Technology can help, but it will not solve all the problems of icy roads.





Deals Gap "Tail of the Dragon" on a Gold Wing
This is a video of us riding our Gold Wings through the entire length of the Tail of the Dragon (US 129, Deal's Gap), plus a few miles before "the overlook". Our lines are not great to say the least, but part of the reason for taking toe video was to learn from it. We don't pretend to have talent just because we have experience (which is a common and dangerous assumption).

Ducati 1199s Panigale & CBR600RR Lowside On The Snake | Johnny5sWorld
On a cold Sunday there were 4 lowsides that I knew of, this is the video for two. Sorry for the shaky footage (more details below) CBR600RR - Q2 Tires, track bodywork ziptied together. Rider was on cold tires moments before lowside. Pressures were also too high for the weather. No injury to rider, just cosmetic damage to the bike. Ducati Panigale - 1199s was a rental from racyrentals.com, rider was from out of town and only had two days on the bike. bike was damaged heavily from frame, forks, wheels & bodywork. Rider only had minor bruises and road rash to right forearm. Bike carried full coverage from rental so a $2500.00 vehicle waiver will be charged for the damage.

Street Killers: Insane Deals Gap Crash
Guy takes a nasty crash off the side of a mountain on his F4i. All filmed with GoPro cameras at Deal's Gap ( The Tail of The Dragon). You can see the rut he hits which locks his front tire and causes his rear to slide out, he then somehow saves the bike from going over with him. I've opened all comments to be posted without approval just so I don't have to read the non-sense anymore. Check out all our other videos.

Ban 18-Wheelers On The Dragon at Deals Gap, NC.
U.S. 129 a.k.a. "The Dragon" is a road connecting Tennessee and North Carolina. A favorite of motorcylists & sports car drivers, it has 318 hairpin turns & switchbacks in 11 miles, making it one of the most challenging roads to ride in North America, let alone the world. Thousands of motorcyclists & sports car owners flock here each summer to conquer the dragon, and pump millions of dollars into to local economies of both states. Sometimes, tractor trailers mistakingly get on this road, not realizing they cannot stay in their lanes, and all hell can break loose during motorcycle season. This video is footage I shot in 2006 at The Dragon, many of you have seen my first video from this footage called "TRUCKS ON THE DRAGON" on YouTube. I have re-edited this footage into a 60 second argument against allowing 18-wheelers on this road. Enjoy, and let me know what you thought! Peace! -zen





Deal's Gap Evo chase
Giving the motor hell in 2nd gear. **speed is in kilometers per hour of course* This road has a 30mph speed limit :) ****For those of you wondering, the car had 66k miles on it when this video was posted. As of 7/20/12, it has 116k miles on it...motor has never had any issues. Car still has the original clutch, original diff, and original wheel bearings. Driving the car like this occasionally apparently has no long term effect on the drivetrain. Hate on. ~ s2kLOL ****
