      On a given day, a given circumstance, you think you have a limit. And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit, and you think, 'Okay, this is the limit.' As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high - Ayton Senna

      I use to "touge" out in the New Britain res years ago before the road became utter ****. I then grew up and became an "adult". Even back then when I was 18 and having an RSX-S with my lack of good judgement and driving skill, I still looked like Senna next to these ass clowns and I have next to no seat time trololo

      That guy has a bunch of similar vids from this road, and they are all both entertaining and a bit depressing.

      At the same time, if you wanted to write off a car, you could just repeatedly drive the opposite way down that road and be assured that you'd get hit eventually.

      That was just horrendous to watch... After teaching my 13 year old brother to drive, I can guarantee even he'd be able to out manoeuvre these idiots.

      I never been on the road so I am going to venture to guess that curve is steep and banked causing drivers to cut into the other lane. Is it really that hard to stay in the lane?

      Surprised there are no 20 cop cars parked there all day...
      Look at your signature, now back to mine, now back to yours, now back to mine. Sadly, yours isn't mine, but if you stopped using your old signature and changed it to this one, it could look like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're on a car forum, reading this signature.

      It's just people trying to "apex" the corner, rather than their lane.

      I lol'd, but I'm also surprised none of those bikers got clobbered by one of these idiots.

      Expect most of them stay in the oncoming lane throughout the turn. Emphasis on TRYING.

      They used to have a relatively lax approach, but it's simply gotten too popular with guys like you see here - wannabe drifters who have no lane discipline or skill.

      I've actually sat and talked with a lot of the police that patrol the area, within reason they'll leave you alone. It's really worth avoiding on weekends, unless you want one of the pro photographers to get a good picture of you, but you risk a ticket and/or a collision.

      Didn't some biker make this video because he was fed up of people crossing over to the other side of the road or something?

      A friend of mine is always begging for me to take the Duke out and go ride up there again. I have told him I'll pass on multiple occasions. This just confirms more clearly that the few fumbles you see occasionally are actually repeatedly playing out on any number of tricky corners there all friggin day long. Maximum lame and minimum thrills plus a decent chance of getting crippled by an underinsured nimrod.
      I suppose my normal urban commute is just as dangerous, but it doesn't seem like it.

      Look at the other videos the guy has on his channel. At least a dozen individual videos of bike crashes. Another 3 minute video about close calls. It seems everyone loses the rear end exiting the corner.

      None of these are my friend's cars, please don't blur the plates. Is this like the morons who record themselves doing ridiculous speed runs on public roads and get arrested later, or is plain bad driving something an officer has to witness to give you a ticket?
