What does miles ridden have to do with anything? 500,000 miles on straight, flat roads means nothing when you get on a curvy road. It looks to me like she apexed too early. Starting a curve on the inside is not usually the sign of an experienced rider.

Classic too far inside line, straight for the gravel shoulder, stomp on the back binder in panic, and there you have it.

Looks like Marvin had some kind of inflatable body suit on. He'll be okay.
