Look again. He was crossed up causing his bike to start scraping way before it needed to be. Had he leaned into the turn, he probably could have made it.

i see what you mean, but i was looking at the cause of the accident as when he tried to lean it more and ended up propping the bike up on its metal parts and lost traction in the rear wheel. we have different perspectives i guess. if he came into the turn and didn't tap the line too early then it never would've happened, and if his bike wasn't so low and he rode the exact same way it never would've happened either.

just to clarify, i know he up and i'm not defending that lol. i just had a different instant reaction to it

Yeah, it's obvious that he scraped hard parts and lost traction but the question is why? Look at his body position, he was crossed up causing his bike to have more lean angle than needed. Had he leaned his body instead of the bike, he could have made the turn.

He was sliding on hard parts picked it up and put it back on hard parts. There are too many things he was doing wrong to say it was one thing or another or if he did this he would have made it.

He doesn't know how to ride the bike he got. And he dresses like a typical Cali doucher.

Turned in too early and ran out of road.

Also, he is wearing a white t-shirt, jeans, and boots. I guess he is a real "cali doucher"

His technique was way smoother than the guy before him.
Though, he is leaning right as he is turning left. Probably the real nail in the coffin here.
