No wonder, Americans can't drive. Their driving license test is a joke.

That stretch of road just seems to bring out the worst in people, plus the attraction is huge for all kinds of squidlys who have to demonstrate their mad skilz.

I love how the majority is cruisers and the worst has to be a toss up between the corvette being hit by someone overshooting the corner or the yellow top lady dragging her exposed forearm and hand across the blacktop. Thank you for posting this and highlighting the importance of proper gear and why not to ride like an a$$hat

I am surprised by th tractor trailer. These roads are typically marked as impassable by large trucks. Many have signs aimed at truckers not to follow their GPS and to avoid the road.
