"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"

On the positive side, at least the cop did block the lane so nobody could come by with a car and run him over when trying to get his bike up.

I know right where this is on Mulholland. There's almost always a squad there on weekends, and there's a rest turnout right above that area where you can stand and watch folks do dumb stuff.

In the first video (lowside), there is a camber change right about where he crashed. It flattens out from a slight bank and he lost traction. If you look at the vid, he feels his turn widening due to the loss of the banking, and tries to turn in a bit more, and loses it.

Often, there is fine dirt on the road at that 180 (second video) that can be squirrly. Donno if that's what he was looking at? Definitely looks like target fixation. In real life, that guard rail is right at the road edge, and it's easy to freak when going into that 180 degree switchback on an uphill grade.
