Default Why cameras and roads don't mix

People can't resist the chance to show off their complete lack of skills!

That's one place to stay away from.

I know exactly where that is. I've been up and down on that road about a million times.

Wouldn't you think they'd park the bikes elsewhere?

looks like a great road but remind me not to ride there. That is way worse than the dragon for people going left of center

Actually there aren't to many paces to stop on mullholland drive. There are only couple of vista points to stop by.

Now believe it or not I find the fault at the camera guys. There are couple of professional photographers camp out there every sunday morning to take pictures of riders and anybody else who is happen to be coming down the road.

Well what happens is when a driver or a rider come around the bend and see the cameras flashing they try to either drift their cars or lean their bikes until they either spin out or spill out.

You must not have ridden it much. I've seen it happen a lot. And not just cars and bike, but SEMIS!

You can thank GPS for the semis. It appears to be a short cut to them and by the time the trucks get there, they can't exit. Earlier warning signs are supposed to be curtailing it.

As for that road? That's why I avoid the twisties that are popular with cagers.
