A few weeks ago, I was at Hollister Hills SVRA... I was on a rather flat wide trail and was almost pegged in 5th... not unusual for this particular trail and I'm not the only one who flies down it. There is a spot where you make a nice backward "S" turn... nice and fast. Right hander was fine... The left hander exiting the turn was another matter... You can't see ALL the way through the turn... the exit is a blind exit. There was a YFZ stopped right in the middle of the trail right after the turn exit. Hit my rear brakes hard and locked it up. Sliding sideways, I knew I was still going to hit the clown... just going way too fast. Just before I was about to hit, I let off the brakes and turned right just as hard as I could... and then immediately back left. I fishtailed right around him... at about 60mph. My guess is that he won't be stopping right in the middle of a trail again... if he can start his heart again anyway. I just can't believe that I missed him at that speed.
