He simply lost traction while accelerating.
X2 - he's on a bike that has instant (and brutal) power at higher rev's and lower gears.
He got burned by not knowing his bike.

That was my take, more throttle then that lean allowed.

Never been there myself, but just looking at that ONE video, the white CBR that crashes took a very different line than the bike that preceded him. So my vote is for trying to accelerate too much too soon out of a bad line. Like he wasn't on the inside accelerating to the outside, but half way outside trying to turn back toward the inside and accelerate at the same time.

You won't find me blaming a photographer unless they run out in the the road and throw rocks at me.
And a learning opportunity.

Fwiw...

If I see a bunch of gravel spread across the road, black tire skid marks all over, onlookers and photographers waiting in the curves to witness carnage, I would slow the hell down. Basic motorcycle safety courses simply say don't out-ride your sight lines.

As far as I can tell, all these folks crossing the line into oncoming traffic, high siding into guard rails and belly flopping off the cliff were simply going too fast. Out-riding their sight lines.
Am I right?


Wanna haul ass and pretend you're a real racer, go to a track day / HPDE class. IMHO.

There are crowds for a reason. When racing in Baja I would be alone for miles then come upon a large group gathered to watch "something". I never gave into the urge to give them a show. I loved to disappoint them. There was usually a kicker or boobie trap to f'up the motorcycles.
It's the same at these spots.

ThE R6 crashing into the parked motorcycles is hilarious. If you are such a dumbass you think it's cool to park your motorcycle IN THE FUCKING LANE, POINTING THE WRONG WAY, I'm surprised this kind of thing has never happened to you before...
