So you ask what happened!! Tail of the Dragon is what happened, I dont know if any of you have ever been there but it's sick, and a lot of people crash there. I spent three days there this summer on my old tlr and I counted around 20 bikes that I personally helped drag back up the mountain. There are 218 curves in 11 miles, it's almost impossible to learn them all and it's super easy to ride over your head there and get yourself into trouble.
