I have locked up front brake and skid before, but not on purpose. Big sport tourer is longer and heavier than sportbike, it is possible. Definately a pucker moment

Not saying it's impossible, but it's a super sport were talking about. For him to day there's no way he used the front brake cause he only saw one skid mark is laughable to say the least.

Rip, very sad to learn he was engaged with a kid on the way.

On the subject of the front brake skidding. I think if he's coming over a hill quickly, sees the truck and grabs the front brake all the way while the front is still light from the hill, it might lock and skid without looping immediately.

To any new riders reading, remember to never outride your sight as others have already said.

We can't know what really happened but uturns near hills or corners or anywhere that visibility is limited is just not a good idea.

It's a nice sentiment, but it seems like this same story happens every week. I'm wondering if anyone's learned anything at all...

RIP for the rider and prayers for his family.

but the driver of the truck was doing an illegal U turn in the road,

huh? where did you glean this piece of information from cause making a u-turn anywhere it's not clearly marked as "no u-turn" is not illegal.

Sure it was not the best place to make the u-turn but anyone driving/riding anywhere near the posted speed limit would have plenty of time to react to this situation.

It's called "driving to fast for conditions" and in this case the motorcycle rider was.

Well obviously he was driving too fast for any conditions except a racetrack, and I,m sure the majority of the blame lies on his shoulders and he paid the ultimate price, I may be misinformed, but I was told by a police officer that u cant just do a u-turn anywhere U want to, that the proper thing to do is pull into a driveway or parking lot and turn around there and then pull out into the road, U-turning just over a hill or turn is never a good idea, even out in the country. Had the truck driver been listening he prolly could have heard that bike coming and used a little caution, but also had the rider been doing the speed limit this wouldnt have happened, Like I said its just a bad combination of bad decisions and circumstances, sad for everyone involved including the truck driver

RIP to the rider. That must have been a very scary end to his adrenaline charged life. Looks to me like he maybe did endo it. He went left, bike went right. He hit driver's door, bike hit rear bumper and then thru the fence. But the bike appears to have a lot of concrete rash from being on the concrete upside down...but this is all speculation. My thoughts are that anyone who rides the country roads as much as this guy is reported to have ridden them must have a clue what he was doing. But when confronted with a truck blocking the road you squeeze as hard as you think you can, and sometimes too hard if startled. RIP, looks like he did what he could to avoid the accident and physics / fate / decided the outcome.
