Porsche's RR layout makes them tricky to handle.... steering feels completely different from the usual FR or FF. glad you made out ok!

First, damn glad it did not end bad.

Second, I have lost too damn many friends..THE F'N ROAD IS NOT A RACE TRACK!!!

If you want to race, go do a track day for your own safety, and those around you!

sorry, but im getting sick of losing friends on regular roads.

Otherwise, cool vid, and great looking part of a seeming very twisty road. Dont get me wrong, I love the twisties, and I love them at a speed well over the posted limit...but after losing so many friends in the past 2 years, I have realized it is just NOT worth it.

Racetrack for the MTFW when it comes to speed with out worrying about cars, trees, debris on the road, etc.
It doesn't matter what you ride, as long as you ride.

This Jetta is actually a 1.8T APR Stg3 car. We were supposed to be joined by a 480-500hp Beetle as well but it sprung an oil leak right before the trip... the Bug has a VR6 shoehorned into it with a GT28RS somehow wedged in there as well. It makes me happy. There are some well-built VR6 cars in our group, a few are S/C and some are turbo'd, running around 300hp at fairly low boost.

I know the road's not a track, but in our defense we weren't racing and we were keeping safe distances! I think anyone here would be lying if they said they had never taken (or thought about taking) their bike out for a spirited ride in the bends!

'Do it everytime I'm on the bike. Though track speed and twistie speed are pretty different things. I think if we abided the posted speed limits constantly there would be a higher instance of riders falling asleep in the saddle. >=o)

I did something similar on a freeway on ramp. The road conditions were wet, though. Spun my Toyota truck just like that in the video and came about 2 feet from the guard rail facing the wrong way on the on ramp. It's a horrible feeling when physics and not you are in control, especially when watching a metal guard rail coming up fast.
