OUCH. Did the drive shaft snap cause the wreck or vice versa.:huh

6:39 shows the awfully big break. No idea when it happened, though. :eek1

He started breaking for some reason (look at the breaklight)

I assume the drive shaft snapped because of the fishtail movement. On asfalt the tire just slips, but on those rocks the rear wheel diggs in transporting all the forces to the driveshaft.

Looks like he just lost it. I bet the housing snapped when he crashed.
Big rocks on loose and hard pack with to much speed.

Driveshafts belong on the street

Definetely on the brakes before and throughout the fishtail....I'm going with rider error on this one. Bummer.

Maybe you should tell that to score drivers and rock racers.

I thought the BMW whale foreskin suit would have saved him.

Nice hospital.

Looks like the back end got loose, he hit the brakes, which caused even more weight transfer, and the thing did a 180, tossed him off the back and then the bike flipped repeatedly. I couldn't see if he got hit by the bike.

IMO it was f'ing stupid going that fast in that terrain on a loaded, heavy bike. He's damn lucky it wasn't a lot worse.

I wear the same foreskin suit and I prefer crashing in it versus other gear I have had. Never had any getoffs anywhere close to that one and never hope to. You look at the damage to the bike and the damage to him, I think the suit did OK.
