Ha. Long video. The crash starts about 6:35 if you get bored watching the Gap.

Just because you have the ability to afford a motorcycle does not mean you have the ability to properly operate one. Just sayin'.

The rider responded at Killboy, he was operating on an hour of sleep after a ride down from Canada.

Anyone else notice video title states a CBR (4 cylinder), but doesn't that sounds more like a 2 cylinder?

stay off the AZ 191

I like the Dragon. Tried the 191 in AZ. No guard Rails. There are spots posted that say 10 MPH for the next 10 miles. Not sure you walk away from those accidents. I think the fall would take 5 minutes.

Looks to me like he was doing pretty good for the first 6 minutes. But all it takes is a second to screw up. I'm surprised we didn't hear any vulgarity as he was laying there. Hope he was okay.

Somehow as he crashed the camera switched from color to black and white. Must be some protective "anti-graphic" feature? My still camera was doing that recently, which resulted in some unintentionally cool shots (no crashing involved, though).

What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

Sounded like he was dragging a foot peg in the left hander's.

Be careful, STUPID doesnít care what direction it comes at you from!!!
