Seriously, you're worse than click-bait links on weather.com!

How about a little more info or some quotes/pics, so we don't have to click...

I went ahead and jumped on the grenade for everyone.

Its a video of riding a motorcycle on one of those winding, extremely narrow 'right on the side of a steep mountain' type roads, like the kind that buses sometimes fall over the edge down in central America. Where the road is like 4-5 feet wide, up against the rock, and the other side is straight down several thousand feet and no guardrails.

I have to admit my hands got a little clammy watching this. I couldnt even walk along one of those roads, it would freak me out. No way would I ride a motorcycle on one. And you're talking to a guy who used to jump out of airplanes for fun.

But yea, a little direction on what people are clicking on goes a long way. If I werent on someone elses computer right now I would never have clicked this.... grin

Even with the video being squeezed in from the sides to exaggerate the width of the road, making it seem narrower than it is, the potential for one fatal mistake is high.

Every road in America should be this way, wouldn't have to worry about texting and phone talking not paying attention drivers for long. Just saying!!!
