Gnarly lowside at The Snake

Mulholland Hwy, The Snake. There's so many crashes there it's ridiculous. Watch the riders suspension during the slo-mo at the end of this video. It looks like he hit a bump which upset the bike enough, and the rear tire to break out of the line?

Yeah, def some bumps. But really just another squid who slides his butt off the side of the seat, leaves his entire torso centered over the tank, and leans the bike over further than needed.

Yeah I talk a big game

He wasn't going that fast, really - so maybe there was a slow puncture on the rear tire. When they picked it up there wasn't much pressure in it....

Amazing how much damage occured even at slow speed. Good thing he was wearing full leathers too.

The bike would have been fine had he did that at a track

He was super lucky he didn't break any bones.

Yes but they are fun to watch.

I'll watch them from time to time and pick out the rider errors and try to learn from their mistakes.

Mostly dudes being idiots or riding beyond their ability.

This is my personal favorite. Dude in Crocs....on a scooter...hanging his leg out like he's on a dirt bike. HILARIOUS.

Hahaha...that is awesome! Trying to figure out how he lost grip on the scooter though? As often as I ride my Ruckus...can't see it low-siding...very strange.
