R6 Crash - Rider Goes Wide Into Dirt
Mulholland Highway in Los Angeles has been a popular location motorcycles &
fast cars for decades. Car and motorcycle clubs are regular visitors every
weekend. Jay Leno can often be found at the famous Rockstore and at a view
point called Lookout talking with fellow motor enthusiasts. Crashes are
common as well as a heavy police presence on most weekends. The Snake is a
two mile section of Mulholland above the Rockstore. Riders usually will
make multiple runs allowing me to move from corner to corner when
assembling rider videos. The speed limit is 45 mph, most riders are not
going much over that so the majority of tickets are crossing the line,
wheelies or equipment violations. Bicycles are up here all the time but
motorcycles and bikes seem to do fine together as long as the cyclists are
willing to stay to the right. Cars passing them are a bigger problem since
there is no shoulder and most turns are blind.
I mainly shoot on the last corner coming up because I can see much of the
road and photogs are expected. The turn gets it's fair share of crashes
but people crash other places also just no one is filming. The top corner I
shoot seem to average one crash every couple weeks in the summer, out of
many hundreds of riders. 911 emergency services are rarely called and
accidents are seldom reported since most riders do not get injured
severely. Google Street View - http://goo.gl/wsMi

DUCATI CRASH @ ZOLDER 11_06_2010
27°Celsius, 4 rounds warming up, a Pirelli Supercorsa Pro at the rear, a
Pirelli Diablo Rosso at the front, standard suspension settings (exept
rebound compression 3 clicks from hardest) and yet, the front wheel went
its own way in a righthand corner. You can hear i stopped braking a moment
before the fronttire lost it's grip. So WTF happened? I'ld like to know!
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.

German ghostrider crashes at 140km/h!
This German/Russian wannabe ghostrider crashes when he underestimates his
own speed and the distance to the front car.
The amazing part about it is that he stands up, crosses the busy road and
goes back to his bike. Even though the bike is totaled, he has only minor
injuries (concussion & shoulder muscle rupture).
Take a look at his protective bike dress and let it be a lesson...
I don't wanna know what would have happened if he hadn't worn it - still
Btw, in the end he says he is still driving this crazy until today. I'm
surprised he hasn't earned a Darwin award yet...
[Correction]: Apparently he's from Luxembourg and not Russian. The accents
in German sound really similar and the name they gave him is Russian.
