Thanks for sharing the vids. Its comming up to summer in Australia and with high performance bikes so cheap to purchase I bet there will be more deaths on roads like these.

This happens everywhere on weekends around the world. In Sydney Australia, we have the Old Road and speed zones has been dropped from 100km/h to 80km/h and now to 60km/h.

Its only a small minority of riders (experience and inexperience riders) that f*cks it up for the rest of the riders, drivers and locals. I don't understand why, but for only $100-$150 you can go as fast and as long as you want on a safe close circuit race track every weekend. I've personally seen a couple of deaths on this road and its not a pretty site.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!

Sigh. That also explains why Angeles Crest Highway in Los Angeles has the 0 tolerance policy.

I'm in that crap news report (part 1).

It was the maiden voyage for the MV.

Our group is in the very first section with the bikes, and you can see the MV as it fades to a cruiser in the next section.

Honestly, what's wrong with that report?

It seemed entirely fair to me.

You can't beat the laws of physics. Bike doing 153mph and a SUV at 45mph in the opposite direction. If they would have collided, its like hitting a brick wall at close to 200mph!!! No wonder the locals are pissed.

I love the high and mighty tone they have when they were putting others and themselves at risk by parking on the side of the road as they did. I could be wrong but I had the understanding that the side of the road was for emergency use only. I hate effin new reporters.
