Weird that he crashed. I mean, he has a "Remove Bfore Flight" tag on his keychain AND a tennis sweat band on his front brake reservoir. If that doesn't scream "I'm ben Fucking Spies" nothing does.

Ya that was ~2$ worth of genuine Borgo Panigale plastic in the helmetcam shots. However, I think the phrase 'In for a penny, in for a pound' applies here. So, more like $1k.

Did he have time to avoid this?
He had time to stop for a sandwich.

The brakes on that Ducati could have stopped him 20' from that van if he knew how to use them,stuffing it between a van and curb is an idiot move.

attitude problem, combined with a stubborn head, and a twisted picture of you own skill level, is an optimum recipe for repeated painful crashes, and recovery periods.

But sure they're good valuable customers for bike workshops....

I don't know. That looked like a perfect time to pop a wheelie to me. I mean, "Shit, they're stopping! Shit, a van! Shit, cars in the left turn lane! Shit, more cars! Holy crap, I made it! Wheelie time!"

Except that he got himself into the situation by not paying attention and just barely saved it.
