Genki Hagata Saves the Day, the Bike and Himself [Video]
Aside from the fall itself, the high side accidents are even more dangerous because the bike can come and smash the poor rider. Which poor rider is anyway usually thrown into the air in front of the bike, to make things even worse.
Unlike low side crashes, the rider is already very close to the ground and just slides away behind the bike. Now there's one nifty thing about motorcycles: the faster they go, the more stable they are.. and if you've still gotten a firm grip on the handle (and some luck, I'd say), there are significant chances to make it back in the seat in one piece.
It was the case of Genki Hagata, number 422 of Hagata Racing Team, who has managed to stay focused during a high side, came off the bike, was dragged a bit behind it, but finally succeeded in getting back where he actually belonged. Not only he has saved himself from serious injuries, but his bike also made it through unscathed.
