On the throttle too soon

I've watched tons of vids of these riders that ride on Mulholland Dr. in California, it looks fun and dangerous at the same time, this guy looked smooth but on that type of sweeper he should have gotten on the throttle a few seconds later instead of earlier, and not so hard. What do ya'll think?

Donno, but loks like he hit the throttle to hard or lost the front. that corner looks tricky, cause all the vids I've watched, most of the riders has either low or high sided in the same spot. And there's a guy who camps out there with a camera to catch all of these accidents, like he knows its gonna happen.

dragging knee is for ....dragging helmet, hip, elbow, shoulder, back, , hand is totally where it is at.

but yea, it must be a pretty deceiving corner. I would go slow through there not only because of the the hazards on both sides.... but the fact that if you screw up, you will be on every forum being analysed... lol

the 1000 just couldnt handle him, had to eject.

high tire pressure could have played a part, didnt really sound like he applied too much throttle till it was already sliding out.

That's because the audio and video are out of sync which happens frequently with youtube

He didn't lose the front. That's a classic high-side. The rear end drops traction and slides out, rider gets off throttle allowing the rear tire to re-gain traction, bike tries to get rear tire back in line with the front (Natural physics of a bike) and the rider gets ejected in most cases.

I would speculate, given the surroundings, that too much throttle mixed with possible fine dust on the road is what aided this guy in trashing his .

What's funny? FYI, with digital television broadcasts, audio is out of sync frequently as well.
