I figured it out.

I know why everybody is crashing. It's from the accumulated oil and coolant from all the crashed bikes being wheeled across the road.

Classic: target fixation, followed by panic, stand the bike up and run off the road. This scenario probably accounts for more than half of all single-vehicle motorcycle accidents.

Just a lot of people that think they have a LOT more skill than they actually have.

Some bad front brake useage thrown in for dramatic effect as well.

That road must be a stupid magnet. Too many people learned their skills on youtube.

What a great place to crash. You don't have to pick up your bike. Somebody else does it for you.

Some crashes look like they never learned to countersteer. They just drift wide with the bike nowhere near full lean angle.

The ones that drift off the pavement then panic and grab a big handful of brake and good-bye.
