I think the guy who crashed messed up too. Thats the point of giving much more than 2 seconds when following someone. Even on a noob ride. Try counting 2 seconds, thats still not enough. MSF gots it wrong!

Very true TMAX. Something else I emphasize on my rides. Plenty of road out there. No need to get too close and bunch up. One sign they were riding to close were the holes in their radiators and nose fairings from rocks being picked up by riders in front of them. Give yourselves some room out there folks.

Looks like he was doing a whole lot of leaning and not a lot of turning.

Mostly it just looks like he was riding over his head.

A little less or more following distance could've made the difference. It looks like he went left, but not far enough. If he were following a little closer He might have made it around on the left side. Had he been further away, perhaps he could've squeezed in between the bike a the guard rail. I guess hindsight is 20/20...pretty much wrong place at the exact wrong time.
From the looks of things he made out worse than the guy who wrecked in front of him.

Seems like most everyone has crashed at this place. I need to check it out. Where is this road?
