Hell no. More than likely it'll be a zoo, and I'll be doing my best to not get run over just trying to get through.

bike just got unexpectedly squirrely and he almost had it slide out from under him. natural reaction if you're not used to the feeling.

What would be unexpected about the bike getting squirrely when riding it through wet paint in the middle of a corner?

Unexpected for the clueless, I suppose...

No way he ever gets all of that paint off of his bike.

Why the foot down? He's a flattracker. Must be preparatory for... layin' 'er down.

He may have been traveling the same direction as the paint truck and not seen the signs or caught up with the truck yet.

Does it matter if he saw the paint truck or not? The guy crossed the double yellow. He got what he deserved this time -- bet he stays away from the double yellow from now on!
