Brake Burner just never seemed finished stopping only part way down to then traverse over to Fern Alley.
I have now fixed that problem. Brake Burner now runs all the way to Summer Street, crossing Salem's Lot along the way and reusing part of an old section of Salem's Lot. The third below Salem's Lot is good for just about any rider and is ridable in both directions (for the most part). The now middle third is hairy and not for the faint at heart, keeping in the true tradition of Brake Burner. The middle third has a prolonged steep middle section that threads through some tight spots and ends with a nasty ledge drop to the Salem's Lot crossing. DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU.
I'm not sure this new route will be the fastest way down, but I sure will have fun riding it anyways.
Who will be the first to ride it?

nicely done, i loved it on Wednesday and didn't crack my skull. I rode it down Backlash, then zipped on some ledges on Brakeburner and took a hard right to finish on Salems lot, then Eastside today..... made for a cool descent.
It made me think of an idea for The pinnacle 11.

You can go straight across Salem's Lot and it spits you out on Summer Street. Like you said it's a hard turn to Salem's Lot from the Extension.

I went straight across Wednesday, it was slick, but the good stuff if nearer Salems lot and I wanted to hit your banked turns.
I wish I had done Brakeburner sooner, it is clearly the fastest way down Coit, providing you don't crash.
