Lucky shot for a Colombian KTM rider in the capital city of Bogota, as he hits a puddle really hard while appearing to be doing several mph above the legal limit.
Just like it always happens in such situations, the bike loses firm traction on the asphalt, front wheel first, and starts to shake violently.

The guy is either too scared to react or he just likes to have this kind of fun and knows very well what he is doing. Either way, this one was a rather close shave, given how poor grip in the wet is, even with good dual-sport tires.

Keeping the throttle open and some weight on the rear tire allowed the bike to pass through the water safely and land the front regaining traction and putting an end to the wobbling.
