Is it just me or is that guy's throttle control appalling?

Looked like she got target fixed on the truck, then the rail while trying to slow down and lost it in the gravel.

The guy with the camera seemed like he was messing around and liked to hear his engine "bip". No control issue just enjoying the sound, which probably means just a weekender rider who doesn't get enough saddle time to move on to other aspects of riding but really likes the revvy engine. . .

It was driving me nuts. that's for sure. He had a few questionable moments on the road, too, but it could have been the camera perspective or him trying to warm this tires up. I agree with Gecko for the most part, but would add that after he truck she probably target fixated on the rocks on the road, or that it was solely the rocks she fixated on (trying to go left, but staring at the scary strewn rubble on the road to her right):

If you noticed her right foot left the peg! No rear brake, she over compensated with the front and washed the front wheel. She was target fixed just as soon as her left foot left the peg.
