Turn on the Sanke

[IMG]_DSC6999-4[/IMG]

Done this turn since the early '90's on the bike and the bicycle, both directions on both the push bike and the bike, there is no problem with the asphalt or the chamber. I have ridden by Paul many times, I have bought his photos, he said one day "watch out it's wild out there". What has changed is that this turn, with the crowd, parked cars and motos, the girls, video and photo opportunities has become a reality TV celebrity spot where you show off, this attracts lots of idiots on a sunny day.

I as everyone else like the speed, the right line. No crashes so far and do not mind mingling with the motorcycles or the bicycles or the cars, even chased a sketboard one day.

Gee, thanks. I didn't know I could do that. You've been so helpful.

I rode the north end of Mulholland to the Rock Store last week.



Too early for anyone else much to be about, I was on my way to turn in my Tiger 800 rental.
Gee, I went far over the posted speeds and didn't fall down. What's all the crashing about ?

Doesn't look like much really. Mostly it looks dangerous because of the driveways and residential areas. I tried to look for some stats to compare with my local roads but couldn't find any. I think we have much worse turns out here in my neck of the woods. But you know, it is LA. Doesn't Paris Hilton set the standard for intelligence there?

You got lucky and cheated death. Hundreds of riders die on that corner every weekend.

Cheated death ?
Kind of reminds me of the last time I was in California. I flew out and rode this rig home to Kentucky for a friend.
I gassed up before heading up to Angels Crest and the guy at the gas place said " Sometimes people go up there and don't come back . " and then he crossed himself.
