    The bike does whatever you tell it to, even if you didn't mean it.:deal Quote

    Yeah I know, she didn't tell the bike to lean more.
    Who fixates on rocks instead of the road?

    I think she saw the truck and it scared her, then she fixated on the gaurdrail, not the rocks.
    JMHO:deal

    I just watched it again, it looks like she tried to steer by leaning, that doesn't work (ask the countersteering thread)

    Mostly it just seemed like an inexperienced rider panicked.

    Sucks, i hope she didn't get hurt badly.

    Ya, this.

    I was impressed with the rapidness with which she went over the top.

    Thanks for that. Couldn't remember which track, but I believe that spot gets a lot of folks airborne. Here's a better clip:

    I bet it's going to be taken down as a snuff film, but I'm glad I watched it.

    If it does get taken down, but you still want to learn some lessons on ways to avoid being super-stupid, the title is/was "accident serious and impressive / campagne de sécurité routière ( Raya TV )"

    That one is a few years old.

    There was a fable going around the 'net that he lived - but he didn't.
