Crocs FTL buwhahahahaha. Dude on the scooter was pretty shaken up. Thought he was going to fall backwards off the rail when he sat down.

Too much throttle, too quick, with a little lean angle tossed in..

Rear tire breaks traction, starts to come around, rider panics, chops throttle, tire grabs traction and stands the bike up.

Classic high side.

Body position sucked as well....

It looks painful and very scary.

What should he have done?

Learn throttle control first

If you get on it too quick and the tire spins up, just hold the gas steady and ride it out. As long as the tire continues to slip you can control it to a point.. once it grabs it will stand the bike up.

Might have simply run out of rear tire traction when he sat up and stuck his leg out.... transferred weight that had been shared on the front tire to the rear. Another possibility, he dragged plastics enough to lift the rear tire thus losing grip.

On the video of the guy highsiding, it almost sounds like you can hear hard parts starting to drag once and then again just as he highsides as if it jacked the rear tire off a little bit to cause it to break loose. Strange thing is that it doesn't appear that he is leaned over far enough to be dragging parts.

looks to me like he wasnt going all that fast. id guess cheap tires (probably factory slicks. those gixxer 600's came with tires for curves) and a wee bit too much throttle for the lack of traction he had.
