That is what happens when you ride outside your skill level.

That 1st vid the guy is clearly going faster than he can handle, he almost got hit before he swerves left. He just got really, really lucky. Second guy... not so much.

second vid you can see the guy squeeze the clutch, so he either down shifted and locked up the rear, or opened the throttle up too much and dumped the clutch, breaking the back tire loose.

The brick wall guy was all about target fixation and lack of skill. Put your foot down on the street?
