No, not me. But this reminds me how similar this crash was to mine when I was riding in the rain last year through ACH Highway down in California.

Notice his gear? I can assure you that he wouldn't be walking around picking up all the pieces from his bike if he was wearing jeans.

Everyone, jeans is not going to protect you from a crash. Please wear appropriate riding pants with armour.

He was also very lucky that his bike, not him who got caught underneath that guardrail. Guardrails will act as a gillatine, it will slice a rider in half.

It seems his speed was to great for the available traction (wet road). Front end washed out and that's all she wrote.

Yes, oil and water is not motorcycle friendly.

and or rad fluid.

not sure if any of you have had the op of making a turn on smooth concrete with anti freeze on the ground..

its the equivalent of mario throwing a banana peel in-front of your go cart..

Ouch. You can see the collection of oil/water in the strip and his front tire was right on it. In rain, that's the only time I actually ride in the wheel tracks of the cagers because most times they push the water/oil out to the sides. I learned that when I drove through the monsoons in CA when I lived there. If you slo-mo the video you can see where the front of his bike was right on the water/oil line and down he goes. It doesn't take much and you don't have to be going fast at all. Sucks, I feel for him.

I also agree that the gear saved his butt.

I also agree with Arson. Hitting anti-freeze is like hitting black ice. That shit is slick as hell.

Agreed, I stopped for a red light once and my left foot planted right on a patch of spilled antifreeze and I almost dumped the bike. I started wondering what would have happened if I was riding outside the tire tracks and and began braking and hit that very same spot.
