Holee crap! A lowside, turned highside, turned flip! There probably wasn't a single usable cosmetic piece left. Looks like a Screamin' Eagle big-inch motor too. That was a lot of money tumbling down the road.

It's like he was deliberately trying to scrape (look at Mr. Flattracker's foot). What did he think would happen to his contact patch when tire load started to transfer to his primary case?

He's no Jay Springsteen.

Yeah, if he did not want to scrape, he might want to lean with the bike, not against it.

Gotta love the way these guys wait, in a prime spot, for an accident to happen and then all rush over - and stand in the spot where 90% of the accidents happen...

or park their bikes up in that same spot. It's kinda like they don't watch their own videos ;p

There is a few roads here in nor cal where they don't cut back the "historical" trees that are impeding on the edge of the road.

A few lean out into the apex of blind curbs, the branches will strip the skin off your face without a full face helmet.

Yes he's lousy on the throttle, but seemed to me it was the peg dragging that brought him undone. So perhaps an incorrect set sag (front but mostly back), possibly incorrect spring rate causing the bike to squat even lower as he gets on the throttle, and a failure to hang off to at least some degree are the possible reasons.

When you get on the throttle of a chain driven bike, the ground clearance increases not decreases because the chain torque extends the rear swing arm.

Even *I* can figure out what happened to this 'tard: He lost the front as soon as he rolled off the throttle at full lean.

Seems to me that he -not only was jerky with th throttle and upsetting the balance and transferring weight front to back to front- but he was not counter steering. Look at his left hand before the fall. If anything he should have pushed so that the bike would slide on it side and away fom him not tuck the tire lik it did.
