Looked like a good way to loose a leg.

Same here, coming up to a turn, intersection, blind drive, etc.

On the video of the guy "parking" his HD on the guard rail, watch the right hand turn at about minute 2:33 (I know, boring as hell to watch until the crash). Mid turn, right hander, turn tightens just a bit and you can SEE that he turns the handlebar INTO the turn and goes wide!

Not a freaking clue about how to handle a bike. Its a wonder he made it as far as he did! BUT! He's got the cruiser look, nose-picker gloves, GoPro on his lid (give him credit for wearing that).

I wonder IF he actually realizes what he doesn't know. I have been on that road and the turn that bit him is not that hard or tight.

Strange the talk on the MSF course teaching people not to cover the brake and clutch. During my MSF BRC-1 the instructors taught us that we were supposed to cover the brake and clutch. Surprising inconsistency. I generally do not cover the levers under general riding conditions but do cover in more agressive, parking lot, and offroad riding situations. Which seem to be more frequent lol...

No idea, but I figure the 4 tires he destroyed will be expensive.
