What did he do?

OK so what did he do to cause the crash?

Clear and straight road, my bet is he panicked and hit the rear brake. That destabilized the bike and down he went.

Any other ideas?

I guess that's how you learn. Keep doing it until you shatter a hip.

I'm guessing it got away from him, too much throttle and he fell off the back.

Yup - you can JUST see the tail scrape as he falls back off the bike before the 'tuck-and-roll'.

I did a surprise wheelie the other day. Front tire only came up about a foot, but that's one more foot than I thought a Vol. was capable of. Scared the livin' s**t out of me.
