I didn't say it was better, I said it was not short...you can keep your little little norton. Smart of you to tell everyone what your favorite roads are. Nothing like messing up a good thing by inviting people to come mess it up.

btw, I've been riding sport bikes in SO CAL since the 70's and lived there my whole life. You're not telling me anything new. I know the places I like to ride and when and I ain't telling anyone. :)

La Canada isn't a secret, it's a large national forest and I don't think this thread is full of ass-hates, but I guess ya never know. Offroad routes you are on your own though, I don't share those. Happy holidays.

Both riders look to be OK

With that in mind, let the comments begin

It appears he looked out of the turn, looked at the Harley and rode ride into it.

Who disarmed the Harley rider,must have been a decorative piston surely.Someone should tell all those lowsiders about not tapping the go switch so hard before the apex.

I'm having a hard time telling what happened. It looked like he just fell over.

I think he levered the front off. Notice the front gets loose first?

I don't think he levered -- I hear a decel, can't tell if he was trailbraking or not. If I had to guess, and based primarily on what I'm hearing, he posed for the picture, took a bad line, came in too hot, panicked when he saw that he and the harley rider were going to come awfully close to each other in the corner, deceled, transferred weight to the front and overcame the limits of traction, washing the front. At around 1:12, you can just see the front suspension compress, maybe because of the decel or a front brake tap, or maybe a road depression, then the wash. Because he and the harley rider were apexing at the same spot and time, I'm betting the rider tried to tighten his line (he was running wide), so I'm thinking decel/brake tap was the culprit. But what do I know? I haven't even stayed at a Holiday Inn recently. . ..

Yeah - I dunno. I'm looking for one of the tires to obviously push to the outside of the turn, but I'm just not seeing it. Seems like in videos of low sides you can see pretty clearly one end or the other stepping out.

Most typical lowsides the rider loses rear traction, though a lowside isn't either, it is just sliding wheels first.

NoVA Rider may be right. Either way it was caused by poor riding and target fixation.
