Definitely not a good place to try out brand new tires and brakes that were REAL grippy.
All I could do was put them on smooth and gradual till there was nothin' left but "They're gonna grab and NOT lock up, or we're goin' over"......
What this video doesn't show was just how WET and downhill it was!
Did anybody mention the wind????
I grabbed a ton of brakes right there about twenty feet from the edge. I was hopin' for a slow slide/lock up over the edge.....! I'm not even kiddin'.......
And my baby Janine Hoskins did a heck of a job shooting with TWO cameras!!!
Had my heart thumping pretty good. I was wondering when you were going to hit that turn. We went up on Monday with better weather and pretty damn good visibility and it was still a little hairy.

A.K.A OBB
