Motorcycle Crash - Yamaha R1 Lowsides on Mulholland Hwy
R1 lowsides on a section of Mulholland Hwy called " The Snake " near
Malibu, CA. Rider OK
Mulholland Highway in Los Angeles has been a popular riding area 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. Google Street View - http://goo.gl/wsMi
Ken's R1 View of Manan cornering in the Himalayas!
Manan going in the hills and going round the corners on his RTR180. I on my
R1 could NOT keep up with him in the hills, the route to Shimla, Himachal,
India. What a difference from a year ago when Manan could not lean at all
to now when no one can catch up with him on any given bike!

The video is same day and just a couple hours before the GTO crashed into
the parked motorcycles a couple months back. The way the bikes were parked
a few would have been taken out if he came through a little earlier. it
would have got ugly
