I believe they figure that by the time the cop figures out just what he's looking at you'll be gone.

Angeles Crest. More ECU/CANBUS errors than I can count. Le sigh. I'll probably hijack this thread for Angeles Crest videos, a well-known guy was running his S1000RRRRR at 10/10ths.

What caused him to go down. Didn't look like he was pushing it hard, doesn't seem to use the brakes or put on gas in mid-corner?

In slo-mo, the front tucked and the rider instantly lost it - Doesn't look to me as if there was anything he could have done about it once it went. Body position could have been better, which would have helped. No idea about the tire, pressure, etc. of course.
