    There's a lot of pucker factor going on. There's something going on in that turn!:thinking

    At 00:38, I hear tire grinding against gravel/sand. I think Alan is right about the wind blowing it all over the road.

    Nobody had the stones to go ahead and spin up the rear?

    I used to live down there. The canyon winds are constant.

    Look at the aftermath of this crash. Watch what the fine dust does afterwards.

    Sure looks like the back tires on all those bikes are stepping out from losing some traction on that black asphalt patch into gaining traction just after the patch while leaned over. Near tank slappers if it was more violent.

    Yes/No?

    I still think there is a camber issue at the exit of that corner (going uphill).

    I just rode that section of Mulholland Hwy yesterday. That corner is a true peanut gallery. Looking up the hill from the Rock Store you can clearly see people and photographers camped out for the entertainment. Fortunately I didn't have any moments to be captured by the photographers so I'll be looking to see if they got any decent shots of me passing thru.

    I think rider position has something to do with the crashes. Most crashed riders either seat whole butt on the seat and lean the bikes the max angle vs weight distribution. Other give half cheek on the seat, but the head is on the center on the handle bar, instead of their head should at least closer to the left mirror, that way the bike be kept more upright.

    It's a camber thing and a slight dip.

    Pixxy Dust or Off Camber..whichever, someone should take a broom and a straight edge out there to check that little patch of asphalt/road.

    I ridden there on a moped and it for sure is a up hill decreasing radius turn. I think folks fee that they have extra traction cause of the up hill. That turn isn't the smoothest either, and once you are out of the clean line it gets slippery with the dirt/gravel. And you guys are right about camber where everyone is slipping is where the camber levels out.
