Motorcycle Student Crashes Hard on Wet Road

Learning how to brake in wet road conditions is mandatory for all those who want to become actual motorcycle riders. However, braking on a wet road differs quite a lot form the dry tarmac conditions, and the motorcycle rider in this video has learned this lesson the hard way, with a serious crash.
Now, seeing him crash makes it clear that the guy squeezed hard on the brakes... doing exactly what his instructor told him no to. The result in such conditions comes in pretty quickly and is more than predictable: losing the front wheel first, then sliding out of control.

The rider hit the ground really hard, and his fall was a bit accentuated by the fact that he seems to be a very solid man. Luckily for him, he wore full gear and did not seem to have broken anything. He mentioned some chest pain, but that's most likely because of falling on his arm, and stretching the intercostal muscles a bit. For the newbies having watched this... learn his lesson the easy way: don't grab the brakes and you'll make it.
