What's going on with your buddy's camera? It's constantly shifting around, almost like it's zooming in and out or refocusing all the time. It made me kind of sick! Watch the video at ~2 minutes for an example.
That's digital motion stabilization. Whenever the camera shakes left, it compensates by translating the image right, making it look more stable. However, the perspective also changes so you get this weird warping.

Classic newbie mistake, hard on the rear brake on slippery roads.

Tell your Tiger buddy to get off on the left side of the bike not the right, another classic newbie move. Parking on a steep hill the wrong way as well.

You guys just got those bikes (so clean) and just started riding it looks like, many more falls to come. Enjoy.

Understand

I really don't understand why in every single fall, the rider wants to pick up the bike immediately. You should relax, make sure you are ok, let the adrenalin ware off and then pick up the bike. Glad you are OK!

I think it's an automatic human response to "undo" the accident. Even now, when I make some kind of mistake in the real world, a part of my brain goes, "CONTRL-Z." It's weird.

On many bikes, gas continues to leak out while the bike is down.

No, my buddy is not on the forum. His other bike is a BMW GTL. Good rider and raced dirt in his youth. The post crash Chinese fire drill was really because it was so steep, the video doe not really show it.
