As for the save, back on the gas lightly by reflex, and standing up to weight the rear again. It is a common theme on Mulholland Drive!

I just re-watched the vid and didn't see his fingers on the brake (or the clutch).

The slide was throttle induced. There are hundreds of vids on the web of bikes doing the same thing at the same spot on that road.

He rolled on too much throttle on the exit and lost rear traction, putting him into a power slide. He then chopped the throttle a little too quickly and almost high sided when the rear end came back in line.
