Hmm I've seen a few tip overs and dunno, seems to be when riders are on a group chat via Bluetooth?

Maybe on shitty roads it's better to ride your own and save the chit chat for the less twistys that are covered in toosh?

Was the rider that went down one of the ones talking? I did not see anything mounted to the helmet.

I do think since the rider that went down was spaced out pretty far, then the one behind him in the day-glo helmet should have given more room. Maybe the guy felt a little rushed?

The fact it said " Kawasaki Crash " made it that much harder to watch, for me! :D

He was taking a left bend, so you'd assume he wouldn't be in the gutter... the roads did appear to have a fair amount of grit etc.
Perhaps he caught a patch, that had been dragged onto the road surface by a vehicle beforehand??

(note I've not heard the Audio commentary as I watched it at work) :rolleyes:

PHEW! Thought you were going to say to me R-Rated, you've tracked my IP and was about to report me to my IT department.... Oh but I AM (part of) the IT Department !!!!! :D ;)

Well I'd go crazy without my daily fix of motovlog.com !! :cool: But I couldn't tell you where I work, or I'd have to kill you (James Bond, hint hint).

All very valid points! Well if I / we were sat here watching YouTube (linked) videos all day, then yeah, they'd have a case. :) Plus it's not happening ALL day! :D

Ok. Just to satisfy YOU GUYS :D I've now watched the Vid WITH Sound! That's Twice in one day..... AT WORK!!!! :eek: :D

So they said he lost the front end first? Probably slipped out due to poor road surface? Badly fragmented road surface....
Didn't the rider know himself how this happened? He didn't have a lot to say - perhaps in shock. No helmet cam?? tut-tut.

OK I'm off to find a new job! Awaiting a taxi out the front any minute, once they spot my youtube antics.

It could have been shock or just worried how his fellow riders would embarrass him.

I'm just glad he's okay! Its easy to lose focus on group rides. Especially if you're new too group rides or just new on bikes.
