I'd drive that, never mind ride on it. Roads like that, the safest place is in the left front corner.

No, the safest place is on a different, real, road. No, I would not travel that road, or any other similar road, period.

I know that you are a professional driver Brian but I don't understand how the front left corner is the safest, surely that is the wheel that can take you over the side!

No, that is the steering wheel that keeps you on the road.

I cannot view. The video runs for about 3 secs and the buffer fills up and has to pause to allow more video to load.

I believe Brian is saying 'left front' as that is where he can see where the front wheel is going?

I have booked my trip! Was surprised to hear there is a Burger King and Casino stop just past the waterfall. ;_)

As a certified and confirmed severe acrophobiac with tinges of barophobia. I wouldn't walk that road, let alone drive or ride it.
My knees got all wobbly just watching the video.
