Was he okay?

Who was the guy that passed the camera rider AFTER the crash? Didn't he see the CBR take a dump?

I don't know if I would call that a lowside, as much as I'd call it "not too sure how to ride properly" He was the one that pulled a wheelie and just about went off the road, then he ran an unnecessary wide line in the first turn and almost hit that truck, then he had to correct his line a few times in that same turn, THEN he tried to catch up to the group and ran wide in the second turn because he wasn't leaning properly and he hit the gravel on the shoulder and lost it. I think more wrecks occur from people riding beyond their ability while trying to keep up with a group of other riders, than just a rider out on his own.

and if he rides too fast when trying to catch them, he'll be in the same situation.

Ya we had a new rider do the same thing at the begining of last year . Not really a fast pace just to fast for the experance level .It's tough for a new rider to keep so we make stops every 5 miles or a intersections so we can bunch back up . Hopefully the F4i rider is ok .

Super.

Id call that "an accident waiting to happen" he wasnt gonna make it, if it wasnt that corner it would have been the next one....

The link isn't working? I tried a few times and only got errors. I'm an Aggie and class of '03 so I gotta see this.
