It's a Hornet 600, not a 9er. Seems more like complacency than target fixation.

It's hard to be humble at 9 G's.

That was a 599, Hornet 600, that's why it has white gauges... Plus it's yellow... plus the pointy tail. Plus it sounds like a 600.

It looks like he hit a wobbly chunk of pavement.

That's in Brazil by the way.

Ipod. Camera. Trying to be racer boy on the street. That was an easy curve on a good piece of tarmac. His line was all wrong. The guy that had just passed him had it right. Pothole(?) had nothing to do with anything.

If I had to listen to that friggin music, I'd have tried to kill myself too.

How many times have you heard some dim bulb say "Had to lay the bike down because (fill in the blank)". That bike slid forever on it's side.

I'm guessing the bike sliding so far had a lot to do with the cage.

he should have spent his money on riding lessons, in lieu of a video camera! not impressed with his riding skills, or lack of common sense.
