It looks like one bike collided with another when trying to pass each other, still pretty dumb. That .Gif is fawkin awesome, some asshat jumps on my car like that I would be tempted to do the same.

It's really hard to tell just what happened there, other than the obvious, which is that they ran out of skill. I thought maybe the rear bike clipped the back tire of the front bike with his front tire? It's just hard to say from that vantage point. Shit like that is why I refuse to ride in all of those charity rides you always see. People always want to crowd you and ride too damn fast, and that is exactly what can happen.

Too hard to tell from that view. When I first watched it, it looked like the guy just fell over. Maybe he nodded off?

If I had to guess there was a slick spot he might have gassed it just a little and the back stepped out him. If he had a tire with a little more than average wear hydroplaning could have done that also. Once a big (any) bike like that gets squirrely your just in for the ride. I get a little concerned on my Goldwing in the rain I always try to ride in the wheel tracks of the larger traffic so I don't get the oil that lands in the middle on my tires.

Riding gear is still cheap insurance or you can have really cool scars weather or not you live to tell about it is another story.
Make sure your tires are in good shape too.

I watched it several times and I'm guessing he locked up the rear wheel,got loose,dug in the foot peg and got launched. He's (they) definitely got a serious case of road rash,but that helmet's gotta look like somebody took a grinder to it. He woulda got scalped without it. A slo-mo of this should be on a loop in cycle license classes.

Had a guy the other day try to stand and adjust himself on the bike. The peg broke and he got squirley like that but kept it up.

I looked closely a couple times, it looks like the front guy just went down and the second guy dumped trying to avoid it.

I am guessing this rider unfortunately suffered something similar to what happened to me. It looks like the rear wheel locked up on him suddenly and kicked out the rear end which he then over steered and put his left leg down launching him off the hog. In my case it was a thrust plate that broke free from the primary drive and locked the drive belt up. If you are going 70mph and suddenly you have a metal plate logged in your primary pulley the bike will get loose on you really quick. The helmet saved him some brain hemorrhages for sure. I am sure he is wishing he had his leather gloves on that day. It looks like the second rider panicked and hit the rear brake to hard and set it down. Its hard to tell really in this clip. The moral of the story is you can go down at anytime without notice.
