How do we know it was actually his? Could've been taking a test ride which imo, would suck even worse.

I was in downtown Annapolis one evening after a ride with friends. As we sat there a guy on a Harley rode by, but he was very sketchy with bad throttle control and seemed to be on the verge of falling over. His body language showed he was a very new rider. So he went by up the main street and left. The next day I read that a motorcyclist was killed on the way out of town on West Street when he lost control and hit a car. Pretty sure it was the sketchy guy I saw that night. It happens.

Zero brake application. Tried to put a foot down to stop the bike. Lack of experience.

Yes , he Certainly was INEXPERIENCED , post about Harley rider points out there are many unexperienced riders out there young & old on the wrong bikes . Mandatory testing when going for license and testing every few years to keep should be initiated .Because of my age I know my spurs are gonna be hung up sooner than I want , BUT ! SAFETY , has always come first .
One Reviewer called the 1299 an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile on wheels yet kids are getting them for their birthdays .
Here in British Columbia we used to have very STRICT rules to what you could ride with VERIFIED accreditation . Nowadays ,nuthin !
Losing a Son or Daughter is hear rending ,TRAINING SHOULD BE MANDATORY . AND ! not just because I had to go thru it .

It was nice to hear some Empathy for that poor bastard ,regardless .

Not to sound like a martyr or saint which I am definitely not, any pointless death on a motorcycle should not be mocked or taken lightly.
Some of these new guys just don’t know better. Some might be full of bravado, whereas other are just plain ignorant and have never had help or advise.

I have had 42 years of good motorcycling, and in return I try help any newbie that wants my guidance. I may not know everything, but can surely still help .

I always try promote safety gear, track schools and good reading material. I make a point to help with basics many of us take for granted.

If someone wants to listen , and I can save a life then all good.
Thanks from able duc

I agree completely. I have 30+ years of riding. I always try to be an ambassador to our sport. I will always help someone that ask for it. I would have also suggested to the person in this video to put this bike away for a season or two and ride a 500 or 600 to learn the mechanics of riding.
Thanks from Veteran

I think we ought to have graduated licenses for bikes in the US like Europe does. Pretty clear the guy in the video was over his head. Least it was a parking lot tumble and not on the road at speed.
