My son Russ and I go down to Deals Gap every spring for the Christian Sport Bike Associations spring rally, while we were there we shot some great footage, and caught a crash on film form a guy coming at us.

We don't pass in a single place where you can't see that it's safe to pass... Even my pass on that mini-van in the later half is a totaly safe pass... Through the trees I could see the next two corners. Lectures aren't needed here thankyou!

You would have to spend a long time trying to convince me that the apex-diving pass around the motorhome at 1:42, followed by a dipping curve to the right allowed a vast and sufficient margin of safety?
The subsequent pass completed at 1:53 just before the curve with the approaching white sedan seemed to cut it close. The pass of the burgundy minivan at 3:27 seemed the safest of them all.
I wouldn't take my comments so much as a lecture as much as ones' rights to swing their fists ends where another person's nose starts if you've heard that expression. The simple fact-of-the-matter is that closing speeds are likely approaching 90 m.p.h. for two riders. It seems to me that would be putting innocent oncoming riders at risk.
