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
Icy road truck crashes compilation 2013 with original sound only.
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
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.
Motorcycle Crash at Deals Gap
Local KTM Rider passes us on a blind corner just to have a Stupid Harley
rider waiting for him in the middle of the road.
The Harley guy lost his gloves and was trying to pick em up, but the KTM
guy (was not with us) passed up because we were going little bit too slow
for his pace and came up on the HD guy. No one was injured and everyone

**speed is in kilometers per hour of course* This road has a 30mph speed
****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 ****
