That's Not How You Ride a Sport Bike

What you're about to see is a fail-win-fail sandwich, courtesy of a rider who has learned a very important lesson. Namely, just because a motorcycle can travel very fast, this doesn't automatically mean that skills of the person behind the bars are growing at the same time with speed.

Any experienced rider would agree that the higher the speed, the greater the risks of being on a public road are, regardless of skills or riding expertise. And that's because the high speed reduces both the space and the time available for making decisions and taking actions.

Now, when we are also talking about a rider who obviously has only a faint idea on how a bike reacts at high speed and how should someone ride it through turns, the result simply can't be a good one.

Fail turns into win and then back to fail


One of the greatest things is seeing the chap managing to stay upright as he leaves the road and enters the grass fields. This is usually the point where the bike loses all grip and the ride ends in a wipeout of various degrees of severity.

This fellow apparently has not deathgripped the brakes and thus remained rubber side down despite all odds. However, his moment of win soon comes to a bitter end by the time the bike reaches the asphalt once more, where it also crashes in a rather silly manner.

Truth is, this silly spill is tenfold less dangerous than what could have happened if the bike crashed at high speed, right after leaving the road. I can only hope that after watching the video repeatedly, this chap understood how close this shave was and decided to ride more responsibly.
