    Bike Forums is for bicycles, not motorcycles.

    Fail, what dose this have to do with bicycling?
    If it looks like the $3000 bikes but costs less than a decent helmet, it probably isn't a wise investment.

    Assuming he's not trolling, and wants to know why a 2 wheeled vehicle would behave in this manner, I think it's a reasonable question.

    What happened was the guy's rear wheel slid out as he was accelerating, he overcorrected, then in trying to correct the overcorrection created a situation where the bike got out of control and threw him off.

    It's unlikely you'll be able to do this under acceleration on a bicycle, unless you're this guy, but it's something to keep in mind for fast descents, especially on wet roads. Keep calm, give yourself plenty of runoff room where possible, and don't ride faster than your skills / road conditions allow.

    Haadji's pretty good. What do you think he's riding on? Oil and Water?

    I think the OP has blundered into the wrong bike forums and may be looking for http://www.sportbikes.net/

    Looks like the rear wheel lost traction, got a little sideways and then regained traction while it was sideways putting the whole bike into a nasty high speed wobble that threw the rider off. That's why I prefer to watch superbike racing rather than attempt it.

    It wasn't an over correction. If you look carefully at 23 sec on the video, you can see the front wheel stop spinning and skid on the pavement. He hit the front brake too hard. The front washed out and down it goes. At the speed he was going, it's not a recoverable error. Front wheel skids seldom are at any speed.

    I think he hit the front break too hard because he was in mid air! btw after i realized it was a bicycle forum, I asked over at a motorcycle forum and got a link to here

    So the sportbikes used in racing don't have ABS? It seems that would have prevented this accident.

    Look more closely. His rear wheel slides to the right and he applies the front brake. The front wheel locks then the rear wheel comes off the ground.

    They don't use ABS. He probably accelerated past the limits of traction on the rear and then locked the front brake.
