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.

This Is Why I Always Ride With A Camera - DMV Harassment
Before critiquing me, just try to think about this incident from a motorcyclist's perspective before calling me "impatient" or "in a hurry." If you listen to my voice when speaking to her, I am clearly calm and not angry or overly-irritated. However, the erratic and unpredictable driving by that van is highly serious to us motorcyclists, as it puts us at great risk. When she stopped me in the middle of a green light, my first thought is "Shoot! Any second I could be rear ended by a distracted driver and killed!" This is why I made that move to the right both times. I wasn't trying to pass or be aggressive; I was trying to get to safety because the moron driver kept stopping when they shouldn't have. I honked the horn to make all drivers around me know where I was, and it is legally warranted when in dangerous situations like these. I don't have the same protection in a steel cage that cars do. I have to take my safety extra seriously. Please think on that before judging my actions from a non-biker perspective. I want to raise awareness about the level of alertness and vigilance motorcyclists have to maintain on a daily basis. More consistent video uploads will be posted when my channel goes live in August. Second, I will concede that my following distance in the first turn could have been slightly larger. While I maintain that I kept a safe distance, I would have allowed for an extra half second or so, had I been able to do it over again. Thirdly, please know that this video is not about me being perfect. I am a human and I make mistakes all the time and admit them. Even if you believe that I rode like a complete idiot, this video is mainly about the DMV worker overstepping her bounds and threatening me when her position warrants no such action. It was harassment, no matter how you look at it. Finally, I am open to your opinions in the comments. If you read through them, you will see many debates and disagreements. I only ask that you be respectful. I have left up a few battered trolls to make a fun example, but seriously, keep it professional or I'll just ban you. I don't need filth on my page. Last note: for those of you who will say that I should have given the drivers license applicant more grace because they are new, I have this response: if you are supposed to be taking a test that authorizes you to operate a motor vehicle on public streets, you should already be competent enough to drive that vehicle smoothly and correctly. If you can't do that, then you shouldn't be on the roads with the potential to get a lot of people hurt or killed, including us motorcyclists who are the most common victims of driver unawareness. If you can't handle it, then it's back to parking lots, driving school, and coached driving until you're ready. Getting and keeping a license is an earned privilege, not a given right. ::UPDATE:: I'm adding the California Vehicle Codes related to this video. The driver easily violated these three codes, and probably many more. What's worse, the DMV worker admits in the video that she took the wheel and caused this herself. She should know better. "CVC 21717. Whenever it is necessary for the driver of a motor vehicle to cross a bicycle lane that is adjacent to his lane of travel to make a turn, the driver shall drive the motor vehicle into the bicycle lane prior to making the turn and shall make the turn pursuant to Section 22100 [general turning regulations]." "CVC 22100. Except as provided in Section 22100.5 or 22101, the driver of any vehicle intending to turn upon a highway shall do so as follows: (a) Right Turns. Both the approach for a right-hand turn and a right-hand turn shall be made as close as practicable to the right-hand curb or edge of the roadway." "CVC 22400. (a) No person shall drive upon a highway at such a slow speed as to impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic... No person shall bring a vehicle to a complete stop upon a highway so as to impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic unless the stop is necessary for safe operation or in compliance with law."





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 rode away.

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.





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: Kill The Gap
Having a good time, doing our thing at Deal's Gap A.K.A: Tail of The Dragon. If you're ever in the area, try to find the guy selling the "Pineapple Whip" out of a trailer with a dancing hula girl on top. We called it "Wheelie Fuel" Hope you enjoy the footage, there's much more but I'm afraid it's more of the same, there are so many turns there that I believe a second video on the the Gap would be overkill.

Crash - Sport Bike Hits Harley
Click this link To watch all 80 crashes captured over the past four years. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL467A2492C0B9CBFF Rider lowsides on the downhill sliding into a Harley coming up. Neither rider was injured. Harley rider miraculously never fell off the bike. Mulholland Highway in Los Angeles has been a mecca for 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.





Fatal Crash at Deals Gap Racing School
2008 fatal head-on crash on the Dragon US129 in Tennessee USA. It is almost common to find cars, trucks, bikes and cop cars in your lane every day on the Dragon, both on "straights" and in blind curves, so beware target fixation, inability to countersteer (steering like a car or trike, or locking arms), and fear of lean angle by inability to drag a knee or scrape floorboards at any speed. "Failure to maintain lane" is a popular traffic ticket for crashes on the Dragon, with 636 curves and 36 cops per every 22-mile lap. Every ride on the Dragon is like a racing school requiring maximum concentration, no matter how slow you go, even when there's no other traffic.
