    Looks to me like the rear has hit a oil/sand patch(although not visible) he wasnt at a severe lean angle..this is all I can think of.

      patch of crap on the road made the back slip out - resulted in headshakes and probably ultimately it hit the bridge because of target fixation..

          Nah, doesn't look like he hit anything. That road was as clean as a whistle.

          I'd say he was not familiar with countersteering and tried to steer the
          handlebars the wrong way in the corner. Then, finding the wrong thing was happening, he released the pressure on the bars momentarily then reapplied an even stronger steering input in a panic - setting up a wobble.

          The more he tried to steer, the more he counter-steered himself into the wall. The fact that he was a poorly trained rider is fairly clear by the way he tried to put his feet on the ground in his panic.

            I guess its possible he ran over something that either punctured the tyre or just caused it to flick around a bit. Strange crash and looks like it may have hurt a bit.

              He changed gears (down?)...but I don't think he completely let the clutch out....higher revs + slipping the clutch + lean angle + target fixation = loss of control?

              Buggered if I know...but I do say no to shit on the road and/or puncture.

                  Watch his left foot just before it happens, looks to me like he changed down a gear and compresson locked a little, and shit himself...

                      inexperience, new bike. See the way he took his foot off the peg when it slipped then left it of, I'd say he did pretty much everything wrong.
                      Except for the donning of leathers.

                            i bet he's glad he fell left of the wall onto the road rather than right, down into wherever the hell that goes. It looked deep...
