When you can't comprehend what went wrong it always makes things a lot harder to get back on.
This sentence doesn't make to much sense to me: He learned after the fact that it was caused by him chopping the throttle in the middle of a corner/lean and the rear slipped out

He learned after the fact? So someone told him what he did? but does he remember doing it?
chopping the throttle in the middle of a corner/lean and the rear slipped out? i would think the front will wash out in most instances of sudden deceleration in lean. unless ofcourse he hit the rear brake too. or did he downshift without blipping and locked it? .etc....etc ............ are you sure he knows what happened?
Thats the conclusion that he came up with on his own, so I really don't know He said he was going pretty slow.

Someone who loves to ride will always find a way to get back on two wheels regarless. That's just my opinion.

I have fallen several times, hard. I took my turns too fast and too loose and washed out a few times. Once I high sided into a guardrail, water barrels and all. That was the worst. I didnt ride for 3 weeks after that, not because I wasnt mentally ready but because I couldnt move my ankle to shift. When I finally went out for that ride after a few weeks I could barely move I was so tense. Rode about 4 hrs, went home and it all played back in my head. I knew exactly what I did wrong. Thats when I regained my confidence...

, I was back on the bike shifting gears before I could even walk straight.

It's normal to be a bit freaked after, but if you love riding like I do( and most of us on the forum) He'll be fine...

It took 3 wrecks to make me learn the hard way, My first crash was in the Hill Country in Leakey, Got airlifted to the hospital with a broken ankle, Broken Shoulder, Broken lower back and a stage 3 cuncussion along with that about 8 weeks of double vision and a week long stay in the hospital. year after that I crashed in turn 10 at TWS (Texas World Speedway) another cuncusion to follow. Another 6 months after that I crashed again in the hill country followed by yet another cuncussion. After the thrid wreck I decided that was enough for me and I only play around on my daughters dirtbike and 4 wheeler now in the fields by my house. No more trackbikes for me. My mind was just so uneasy when I got back on the bike it scared the out of me and I couldnt focus, Was making stupid decisions while on the track and couldnt concentrate. Would always overanalyze the turns and make a mistake.

on one of my first races in 1990 when AMA/CCS (were still together) 750 Supersport class. I crashed around the tower turn at the Las Vegas Speedway Track.
Was shaken up, slid down the straight away, nothing broken, ego was more hurt than anything and the next day I felt like was hit by a truck.
It never really affected my street riding as I'd still be constantly checking on the cagers around me.
I guess its a mindset?!?

the only easy day was yesterday
