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.
Mulholland Riders 9/2015 - Doggy Two-Up, Harley Knee Drag, Chopper , Supermoto
Motorcycles on the Snake August & September. Follow Me on Instagram https://instagram.com/rnickeymouse_/ Are you in this video? Thank you ! Mulholland Hwy has been a top destination for riders in Southern California for many years. The Snake section is a little over two miles long. The turns are tight, limiting speed and injuries in the event of a crash. And there are many crashes but also great riding. The road is public but considered a recreational use area. All rules of the road apply but motorcycle and auto enthusiasts are part of the tradition of the area. At the top of the Snake there is a park maintained overlook. The sign says: "You are standing at the top of curves that road enthusiasts affectionately call "The Snake". Over the years Mulholland Highway has tested the merits of cars from Duesenbergs to Teslas. This particular stretch of road is a mecca for motorcyclists. It's sharp turns offer an adrenaline rush and a chance for fun, fame and often folly. To your left is "Edwards Corner". It was named after the late Ed Savko, long-time owner of the Rock Store., a popular road house just down the hill. Hundreds of riders have crashed on this challenging 180- degree curve, perhaps showing off for spectators, who often gather here. Other succumb safely to the charm of "The Snake." " Important Note Regarding Spectators: Recently the road has been posted "No Stopping." There are five 1 hour spaces at the overlook that fill up quickly.

Dragons Tail - Harley Crash 8/20/2012
Webby is trailing me back up the Dragon Tail from the end at the lake (back to Deals Gap), and along the way we catch up to slower traffic in some cruisers. I follow a couple Harley cruisers for a bit and the guy in front of me decides to politely pull over to let me pass easy....however things go really wrong and the guilt sets in....UGH!
