Rider Fails to Lean, Crashes

It's not that hard to foresee a bike crash when more than one thing goes wrong. And when one of these things is a inexperienced rider who's either afraid to lean or late in taking actions... the crash is no longer avoidable.
The present video is he perfect textbook case: a rider meets some gravel on the road and fails to negotiate the turn, then heads straight for the outer patch of leaf-covered land. He wasn't speeding, and was also lucky as he did not meet an incoming vehicle, which could have proven a fatal encounter.

However, given the low speed, he could have leaned and throttled away after clearing the gravel, but it also seems like he got a bit of point fixation and thus no longer in proper control of his machine. The rider made it with no injuries and the dead leaves bed cushioned the falling Gixxer, too, so it's only a good lesson learned.
