Not quite in the mood for laughing at it, at the moment.
What an unnecessary waste. :facepalm:
Read Twist of the Wrist before riding on motorcycle! (That is for me also. :oops: )

all i can think is its a good job the 1st cyclist had a helmet on or it could well have ended in a fatality.

Or it could have ended with nice sunny day ride for all involved.
Seems like it is popular bit of road, judging by other videos from same author.

You can even see my house at 5:14, conveniently right opposite The Raven 8)

The Mulholland Highway is quite a road if you aren't used to it. I managed to pretty much destroy the brakes on a hire car by being a bit too enthusiastic driving it.

Also if you go up it on a Sunday motorbikes are everywhere, there is a famous cafe called The Rock Place where they all hang out.
