That curve isn't even that sharp.

I know some of them are getting their stupid on because there is a photographer there but I don't understand driving thru a blind corner totally on the wrong side of the road.

Hope none of these assholes ever go where the road is curvy, and I'm glad there are no good motorcycle/driving roads here in WV.

You'll notice that he had NO trouble going around the guy on a bicycle.

He MAY have been going fast enough to get a performance award. Bet it woulda cost less than repairs AND a performance award.

No. It's flatter than it might seem, but it's just flypaper for idiots. Rock Store is only a mile away, so riders aren't even warmed up after being distracted with 80 bikers standing around.

That was the scariest thing I've ever seen. I don't think I could be persuaded to take my bike on that road after seeing all those cars all over that road.

edit: after watching a few more videos the motorcycles aren't much better.

Looks like everybody (at least many) lost traction at the exact same spot in the pavement.
A little invisible slick spot makes for some lively pics and videos.
Just say'n....

The non-ATGATT riders stay in the city and on the freeways.

That does seem to be quite a coincidence. They all seem to lose it right after that dark section of road.
