Don’t get me wrong. I dig the smooth pavement, tight corners and virtually-legal hooning The Snake offers, but with stuff like this happening on a regular basis, why would you ride there? Surely the LA area offers plenty of alternatives where a lowsiding squid isn’t hiding around every corner. In this video, Snake regular and GSX-R pilot Johnny5 is wiped out head-on by a fellow motorcyclist. He’ll live, but we hear the Suzi is toast.
