Not to mention the six bikes parked RIGHT on the white line, one of which was knocked down by the bike(or the rider?) parked in the road being pushed into it.

I don't think braking was to blame.
I think he initiated the turn too soon, then tried to tighten up in the middle of it.
He looks tense just before the loss of traction, possibly he got scared? fixated on the guardrail?
It looks like the turn is tighter than it appears as you enter it.
I've never been there, just speculating from my desk.

What do you guys think?
Watch this video.



Notice how many of the bikes step out when they cross from the patch back to the regular asphalt? I think it's just rough enough that if you're close to the edge of traction it'll bounce the rear and help it step out.

even still, it's the riders fault for riding beyond his/her capability.

unless someone drives into me, i never blame my crashes on someone else. that's like suing mcdonalds for having hot coffee. you may get away with it, but it's still your own fault for spilling hot coffee on you.

accept responsibility for your own actions.

Fuck the McD's bullshit.

The real important question to ask is if it's really necessary for those riders to hang off the bike, or if it's just a poser move.

Anyone seen any car tires yet?
