  1. wasnt mechanical failure it was death wobble/tank slapper..speeding plus the top of a hill with i quick drop off or decline on the other side made the front wheel light and lift (you see it quite a bit in isle of man videos) and when it came back down the bars werent straight which started the wobble if you dont believe me choose hd quality full screen and 0.5 or 0.25 speed and watch the rear wheel stay straight then watch the front wheel come down and move left a couple inches then right a few inches and start the death wobble

  2. Do NOT throttle UP during a tank slapper. PLEASE stop saying that SHIT. Sorry but that advice will get people KILLED. A tank slapper most of the time is due to harmonics the bike is dialed into…speed weight lean etc. The best thing to do is dial out of one element of the harmonics and speed is the easiest since your bike is already slowing down it's dialing down. Just ride it out until it settles down. Gently apply the rear brakes. NEVER EVER EVER throttle up.

  3. hope im not riding with the camera man. passing by slow and just goes on up the road for a bit then walks back. yikes pretty shit move. the rider that wrecked was getting crazy but to just go by a downed rider. terrible.

  4. Fucking hilarious that there's no mention of other divers on the road while the guy speeds and crosses a double yellow line. Too bad this millennial pussy didn't die so we could get him out of the gene pool and make the roads a little safer for you and me.

  5. Well that obvious, he got slight air of the road causing a tank slapper that was also caused by going to fast.
    Hope the guy was o.k
    Point of fact most of the time when a rider losses control its normally the riders fault. (pushing to hard or trying to hard to impress)
