How NOT to react when you see CHP on Mulholland



I like how CHP pulled forward because 5 feet was too far to walk. That's how you know this was shot in LA

You don't think the cop was trying to use his car to shield the biker from traffic going down the hill at all?

What's the speed limit on Mullholland? I don't think the biker was going that fast.

One of my biggest fears when riding; having the front tire slip from under you.
I've only been on that road, once, at night...
...I took it real slow.

Idiot.................I drive it often enough to know they usually park there. There weren't any of our officer friends there yesterday. Its a great alternative when the 101 is backed up.

somethings to help alieviate your fear...
1. get your braking done fairly early, before turn in, as you turn in, ease up on the brake - =the more lean, the less brake.
2. look through the turn as far as you can
3. as you see the road open up, get on the throttle easily - if you are on the gas dont worry about the front

this all revolves around weight transfer. of course make sure you tires are up to temp. and one thing i learned from racing for years, is turn!!! even if your not so sure you can make it, dont panic - turn more!

this guys problem was caused by seeing the cop, panicing and grabbing the front brake quickly - locking it up. he wasnt going to so fast, but the sight of that cop car was enough for him to stab at that front brake - and you seen what happened.
