He was going to fast in that much traffic.
Look harder still... at about 0:15 or 0:16, if you look at the road along the left trolley rail, you can see some missing asphalt along the rail a couple of feet before where the bike landed. Likely a combination of two. When he reacted and got on the brakes HARD, his front tire also got trapped in this missing asphalt. If you look close at the video you can that his bike is pretty much lined up with that left trolley rail.
I wish I knew how to do a screen grab from youtube... I'd post it up.
Edit: Also visible near the orange shoe at around :051.
Plus I don't think the chances of such a "neat" endo are likely otherwise, he was at least dipped in the rail if not grabbed by it.
I couldn't help but noticing the useless bystander was wearing Capris, maybe that's why he was so reluctant to get out of his car.
Perhaps substitute the practice of a higher risk skill with the development of more observation and anticipation. Looking further ahead and giving yourself more time to respond appropriately.
After all how many events are truly out of our own control?

Not to mention doing the worst thing possible by sticking out his leg in case he slips. (Not to be confused with the foot forward method of riding!)
How much better can it get?
Meh, depends on how fast he's actually going, and what kind of sole his boots have. I've planted a foot a time or two on pavement, but not with grippy boots...
Something like this, more 'foot down' than 'leg out'...
Only done it in the rain or when there's something in the road that might give me trouble...
Where to start.....
I don't know if it's related to his death or if it's usually like this..... but..... there were no less than 8 speed traps..... 5 in a 1/2 mile span..... by evening this past weekend. :eek1
Don't get caught doing 57 in a 30 on the dragon..... unless you've got great boobs and the cop who turned around to pull ya over has a thing for redheads.
How many fingers does this guy clutch with??????
The useless Kuryakyn hyper charger?
Sarcasm! And as far as I remember, ABS was an option for 2010, became standard later on.
So... All kinds of evidence of the 57 in the 30, but no evidence of the great boobs. You can't allege that you've got great boobs unless you're going to demonstrate said boobs so we can determine their greatness on our own. This is not something you can determine for yourself. Your bias is obvious. You need at least 30 objective, non-biased, complete strangers on the internet to determine that for you. So... let's see 'em.
GOD I love red heads
love the shot:
Just crazy enough to be awesome.
