Further proof that loud pipes save lives: that would never have happened if he had straight pipes.

I like the pirouette at 0:40 by the motorcop on the right side of the screen getting off his bike.

Definately looks like he locked the front brake while the back end was up. He shoulda hit full throttle to rotate the ass end down

No way that the front brake had anything to do with that mishap. Look at the riders following, all are getting bounced out of their saddle when the rear hits that bump, just not with enough force to pitch the rider and rotate the bike about its long axis.

It may have been 5 or 6 times. He tumbled several times and hit his head each time. He probably got a concussion out of the deal.

See, now if he was riding a DS, he could have just stood up when he saw the bump too late and the bike would have cleared it.

Seems like a dipshit rider issue more than a bike issue. Pretty funny video either way.

look again, at about 57 seconds it looks like he locked the front wheel, there even appears to be some tire smoke.

They have a law that the rider can not stand up!

Must be seated at all times, ready? Launch

No bull! What do they have, maybe 2-3 inches of travel on a 8-900 lb bike? Ridiculous! Lucky he had a helmet.
