Good thing no one was traveling the opposite direction.

Glad the guy was okay, and we got to see this from several perspectives.

Ride safe

That's the longest explanation for entering a turn too fast that I've ever heard

Poor bastid, looks like the boards scrapped right when he took his left hand off the bar.

Looking at his video, it seems that he was riding a bit fast, perhaps faster than the 30 MPH speed limit? There goes his deposit on that bike.

Glad he is OK though.

Rode the Dragon several times, not a place you want to lose concentration for even a moment. The "tree of shame" at Deals Gap will attest to that. Glad he's ok

A good reason not to buy a previous rental, hope he had collision damage waiver. How do you manage to fall off when a board scrapes?

I’ve not ridden the dragon in more than a decade. Heading back up there summer of 2019 with some old buddies from the Corps I used to ride it with. It ate one of them last year as well.
