But I've pushed on the street also. Is that a TM? and does anybody have there website?

That's a double fail...
1: he was showing off
2: he lost it while showing off
Oh, and 3: he wasn't paying attention to the most important thing he was doing, no not goofing off for the camera, riding.

I'm sure he slid into the other lane after the second pic. What would happen if you were running hot through the curve in the other direction and were to get taken out by that fool?

Yep, that's the method I use when camping, hiking, motorcycling, etc.

And 4, he's on a Supermoto and dressed to crash = He just got up, shook it off, started his bike and rode off.

No fan fare...

Strangely, the last few slides of this type I recall in the area resulted in meeting a lady in a mini-van.

Might have to disagree on that one, especially if you are categorically saying, zero tolerance on showing off on the street regardless if he had crashed or not. This comes in the category of, behavior that increases risk, which is a slippery slope. You could also include anyone riding that road at a faster pace than they could be, or with more worn tires than they could have, less gear than they could have, less frequent maintenance, etc.

There are guys that could pull off that camera wave and (not knowing your skill) probably do it more safely and comfortably than your normal pace through the corner. Appears to just not be the guy in the picture, though.
