This guy can ride a heck of a lot better than I.  But he sure does have a big butt......I could do without the rear shots. ;D

All I will say is there is a local girl on a KTM who is much, much faster.

I don't want to sound like the voice or reason, but isn't this video (and others) inviting every wanna be racer to try and do the same? So you get 1000s of squids trying to do the same and then you come along in the opposite direction and get hit by a clown in a big FAIL...
I know the dragon is the holy grail of roads but at some point there has to be a limit. This type of driving on a PUBLIC road is absurd and puts the lives of others in danger.

Flame suit on  ::)

I agree with DannyL. Somebody tell the Darwin Award people to stand by.

Maybe this road ought to be closed once a year for a private event like the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. Full race prep, disclaimers, helicopters and coroners standing by. My first thought was what if UPS has coming the other way? Quoting Forest Gump, "Stupid is as Stupid does." No tolerance from me on this sort of thing.

no flame but. you can hardly blame a vid like this for squids. the bike itself is an invite to madness! I guess we should go ahead and take moto gp off the tv too! come to think about it NHRA should be gone too!
I bet I could catch you in a squid moment(car or bike) or two when you were thinking no one was watching.

No video... Though I have posted some video of her group riding the hill in the past.

You would just have to visit and see for yourselves.
If you know when to ride the gap, then you would know when it is somewhat safe to ride it WFO.

IF you have visited the DGMR and the lot was full of pirate ships, then I will take that as you don't know when to come.
There are prime times to get good clean runs in on this road before the Slayers and police show up.

There are less deaths on the road than the rumors would have you believe.
But there are many, many crashes everyday.

The fast riders on the hill don't shoot video... They just tell you to stfu when you complain about being past.

Your two examples clarify what I'm saying, those two "sports" are practiced on a closed circuit.

I would be a hypocrite if I said I was perfect and always acted appropriately.

However what I have done is a far cry from doing Moto GP  on a public road.
