My very first time riding the Gap, i came up on a fatal accident, right about at the 6 minute mark on the video. A sportbike crossed the center line into a Harley Road King, broke the Harley Riders femur and killed the Sport Bike rider.
Gotta be on your toes at all times there. i pretty much stayed in second and third gear the entire 11 miles, and never used my brakes except when i was going a little hot in 3rd on the straightaways slowing down well ahead of the curves.
Because of my foot board extensions, the back support arm of my Foot boards would hit the pavement and a couple of times, i could feel my back end slide out from under me because i literally was off the back tire. After a couple of those, i was reminded to slow my ass down. Sure was fun, and everyone called me Sparky that week.
