Speeding, lane splitting, and other common factors typically cause the majority of motorcycle accidents.
But when it comes to the two-mile stretch of road called “The Snake” on Mulholland Highway in Southern California, the cause for even the most seasoned riders to wipe-out is one thing in particular: an apex of a turn.
It is the most crashed corner in the state and constantly tests a rider’s ability to maneuver the 180-degree hairpin.
Every weekend, people gather at the unofficial finish line, Edwards Corner, armed with cameras to watch as countless rookies allow their egos to get the best of them.
Luckily, many riders are at least wearing some sort of protective gear to save them from brutal collisions with the guardrail, spectators and the pavement.
