Hard Wobbling and Funny Crash for Scooter Rider

One of the most common rider errors when strolling around on two wheels is losing focus on the road conditions. This triggers a more relaxed stance and also slows down the instinctual response and increases the risks of a crash... which is exactly what happened to the scooter rider in this video.
In his case, he eased up the handlebar grip a bit too much, so when he drove across a small road segment with bumps, the scooter's front wheel started wobbling and he lost the directional control in just few meters.

Unable to regain control of the front wheel, the rider was already on a downward spiral: trying to brake would have shifted even more to the front, enhancing the influence wobbling had on steering. Luckily he missed the parked white car and crashed into a bush, with the grass breaking his fall a bit. In any case, he fared way better than having crashed on asphalt.
