The guy was just in over his head, probably a couple thousand miles under his belt, thought he had it figured out, and his friends were stupid enough to put him in a situation where his lack of experience was almost certainly gonna get him in trouble. He had no clue what getting off the gas was gonna do to him and his bike in that turn. We've all been there. I know I have. Not to the extent where I had a shit my pants moment like that, but .....

You can get off the gas in a turn and even apply the brakes quite forcefully, you just have to keep the bike leaned in.

Looked to me like he lost the front just a touch (pothole, tar snake) and just freaked out.

Don't know if this was posted before but I think it captures the Isle of Mann TT perfectly.

The IOM is the ultimate expression of motorcycle road racing.

Modern race tracks are designed for cars and don't demand the unique physics of the motorcycle.

The hordes of squids speeding around places like Deals Gap, Palomar Mountain and the Malibu canyons should all just give it up and go back to riding mo-peds and hanging out at the mall listening to Brittney Spears.

Awesome vid, but I wish they didn't recycle the footage of the crash at the stone fence 4x, then end on it.
