Holy moly. It's all so calm up until photo 19.

They say you can always lean farther than you think you can, but on 10, it looks like he's about maxed-out. Not on 11 or 12, though—target fixation, or maybe he thought he could cut in front of the Corvette?

Ya he definitely handled that wrong. Too busy waving so he got into the corner too late. Then he went and straightened the bike up. Do that and you better be standing on the brakes. He's fixated on the Corvette and drove straight into it.

I think he could have made it with only a case of mud butt if he hadn't straightened up the bike.
