Just wondering why everybody lowsides at that left sweeper on mulholland drive. I must have watched twenty vids of people eating it on that corner. Do any of you guys ride there? Its like there's fuel/oil residue on the line or maybe bad road texture? Maybe they are just squids? Anyways just thought i'd throw that one out there? :ciao:

Looks like a decreasing radius, off camber/up hill turn. I have never once seen a 'random' crash, it's always been because of poor body position or target fixation.

I suggest you learn what the definition of a squid is first before you throw it around loosely trying to sound cool.

that guy had poor body positioning. I'd say most of those crashes are due to rider error. sometimes I do see stones and gravel on the sides, but it doesn't seem like that's the problem in most of rnickymouse's videos.

In the video above it looks like he was on the paint stripe which might have contributed to it. But poor body positioning is a big one. I see tons of people just trying to put their knee down but sitting up straight.

Yeah it's pretty classic how he sets camera up there just waiting for squids... (ah...oops.. I mean people) to belly up. Thanks from all the aboves analysis of the scenarios... good tips for watchin throttle, body/bike situation and road conditions. Cheers! Rob
