    A little late but my money is on ACH too - LACO Fire station 82 is in La Canada/Flintridge, near where ACH meets Foothill Bl.

    Be sure if you get as far South as the San Diego area, there's a bunch of those little gropers who live there. At least we know now where great leader gets his ideas from. Do ya think he could be the Wiz?

    Thanks for posting this video. I saw this on the national news, but they played just a few seconds.

    That's f...ing wild. Incredibly lucky man.

    Then again maybe I need glasses.

    Anybody that thinks that yellow paint used by many states ain't slick even when bone dry is full of shit.

    Kind of a long read for the rattlecan rangers but here's how the big boys view it:

    Few more seconds, could have been a lot worse:

    I agree, ACH near La Canada/Flintridge, at lower altitude. He was going downhill and just lost it.

    In the video, I didn't see the driver of the truck stop and look for the rider who had just crossed their path.

    I'm sure glad somebody understands all that stuff. I guess that's why they call those bigass glass beads marbles.

    I think an ejection seat on a bike would have to go through a little redesigning. It's been awhile but to actually eject from an aircraft so equipped, takes both hands as I recall. I'm certain that all three of the military air services who have birds with ejection seats could share this salient information. IMO, it might be better to not take one's hands off the bars at speed since most know how much trouble one can get into doing shit like texting and willy wagging on a bike.

    Free Willy is a nifty slogan but the actual practice on a bike might not sell well to the local LEOs.

    There is some difference between "looks like" and actuality. From the still pic, the truck is rounding a curve and the bike and rider have "left the building".. Maybe the driver of the truck couldn't find a parking meter.. Just thought I'd add a non professional opinion mself.

    The driver probably was texting at the time and missed the whole thing.

    Spectacular bit of road, you guys in SoCal are pretty lucky to have that sort of playground in your back yard, I will confess to being just a little jealous, not of the guy who decided to fly instead of ride though. As to the angles this guy had with him, I think he probably had more vectors and possibly a trajectory or two depending on what he bounced off on the way down. Once very lucky guy for sure. Glad it ended well, comparatively speaking.

    The secret to all the awesome roads out here is to stay away or hit them early on weekends. Weekdays are the best and virtually empty and free of the squidly types.
