Car driver was an idiot.... but. Did the rider even try to stop? He didn't seem to be going fast to start with. I never saw the nose of the bike compress, let along the rear wheel in the air. Hell, he barely even turned! More like, fixated on the front of the car, and hit it.


Also... Bike doesn't even look like it was damaged! Car is a fucking wreck.

I hear alot of rear brake. ABS would have helped out this rider.

Maybe he was trying to scare the driver at first with a big smoke and noise show from the rear lock up and just waited too long to try and stop? Ive done stupid things like that before.

a bit of everything

because i will never ride at mullholland but the name of the road has something to do were i come from i will post a uncut and bad sound quality video which has a bit of everything here discussed, overtaking, line crossing, bicycles, pedestrians, cayenne movie car, movie police, off course speeding and almost everything done in second gear, i forget, line crossings are all because of the camera position of course.

the only reason to post is because i like this thread and the (sometimes hilarious) riding and like to share this road with you, though it is a bit longer as a mile and a half.

The man maybe, the girlfriend probably not. I was shocked the first time I heard it said. Around here we call it "doing donuts".
Drifting when I was a kid was called, "doing Brodys" I never learned WhoTF Brody was, or why he took every curve sideways.

ALL: Ok, school me on the bald front tire? My thinking (poor that it may be) is that the baldness in not an issue on a dry road. More important is the transition over the 'step' between the flat center section and the curved profile of the rubber closer to the edge. I watched the video and noted the front washing away. School me as to how the 'baldness' caused this?

I recently crashed in a similar manner at the track on a well used front tire and wonder if the worn tire was a very large part of the problem? Mich RP2 with 3/32" measured half way 'tween the center and the edge of the tire. My crash involved a 'damp' spot at lean. Earlier experience showen me that the tire liked to slide in the damp even when the bike was verticle and under some braking. The damp spot at the track got me sliding but the tire did not want to hook up on the dry right after. The tire in the video slid and tucked in the dry similar to my tire which slid on the dry rightafter the damp moment at the track.

I tend to stretch my limits and get my ya-ya's out at the track rather than on the street.

Dude... The CORDS WERE SHOWING!!! That tire was beyond worn.
I've noticed the traction seems to fade with wear/age. I'm not sure why, maybe the rubber gets harder as it ages?

Before tires were tailor made for the application the norm for flattrack racing was to harden new tires by throwing them on a tin roof for a year. It helps the lugs keep an edge longer.

tire and rubber



this tire is mine and below grip level.
you need just a bit more rubber on the tire to flex with the road surface to obtain grip.
on of the reasons to change your tire when the wear markers start to show.

I usually change mine before they get as bad as those.
But really, the tire in question had cords showing, that's just stupid.
You'd be better off with a car tire on the front!
