He was pretty lucky, some scratches and on the go! He was lucky as well for not being charged for the guardrail... :rofl

That was a very poor corner entry on the part of the guy who
crashed.

At least he didn't hurt anyone but himself with his poor judgement
and lack of skill.

Just some scratches? He is lucky if that is all of his injuries after that crash.

putting a foot down on the pavement to assist cornering! - is his other bike a BMX?

I dont understand all these keyboard commandos who come in here and shit on the guys who make mistakes. Yeah, he fucked up- shit happens.

I started off on a 79 Sportster. It was a huge piece of crap that spent all its time broken down, but whatever. Eventually after I joined the Navy, I decided to rent a bike. Went to the harley dealer and asked about a Sportster- rented out. What do you have? Vrod and Ultra Glide. I took the Vrod, and I hadnt ridden any bike in months, much less that powerful or heavy.

3 hours later im in the twisties up in the SoCal mountains. I came into a turn what I thought was too fast and ended up putting my right foot down in some ridiculous attempt to fix the fact that I was headed for a bunch of trees. I target fixated on them and was headed for them and my death. At the last second I snapped into the right mindset, looked waaaay left into the turn and drug that Vrods pegs all the way through the turn.

The point? I fucked up just like this guy. I learned something from it, and hopefully so did he. Give the guy a break

In this particular case I know cuz I was there, it all was a matter of being very very tired after a loooooong route in a very very hot day, plus he obviously is not a Rossi riding... (and some more considerandos, like he choose leathers that day, instead of a more fresh cordura suit, that he choose to be in the middle of the group instead at the rear, etc, etc.)

And it may look a BMX... cuz the guy is about 2m tall and he weights more than 120kg!! But the bike it's a SM950.

If the near end of that guardrail had been solidly anchored, he would have broken both legs. Lucky.

I think the white line got him.

I may be an asshole, but I laughed when he flew over the guard rail. Glad he's okay, but that was just humorous to me.

I don't understand what happened?

He hit hard enough that he bent that guardrail with his body!:eek1
Guardrail anchored or not, that was one hell of a hit!
He's lucky he's still with us.

He got scared, and put his left foot down. Not sure what good he thought that would do. Then he slammed his rear brake on, locking the wheel. (Pause the clip at 4 seconds, and see the long skidmark trailing from his rear wheel.)

The guy was obviously clieless. Maybe some mandatory training isn't such a bad idea after all?
