For sure.

I feel like from the looks of it that was bound to happen sooner or later. Could just be a total brainfart, but from the looks of it that guy probably should have considered another bike for now.

I've almost had a moment like that. Bike was too tall and stalled, and I'm not tall with a short inseam lol

Yes I think he had a moment of brainfart, he was obviously (unconsciously) reving and had the clutch in but panic set in and the thought of front brake didn't kick in lol.

No matter the experience level mishaps will happen but is times like this you'd hope your reflexes kick in. I've had similar happen on gravel, I caught it but you sure feel them chills go up your leg and through your body lol.

..Tough reason to be famous for ugh

Not much experience riding motorcycles for sure. So many things are going wrong in his head that could’ve easily been averted by one squeeze of the right hand.

I disagree. If he would slammed on the brake all the weight would’ve shifted forward (and sideways since the bike is already leaned over) and would’ve fallen. He’s already putting out as much leverage as he can with his leg since he’s not a taller rider.

Peach - as soon as the video we see starts is when he should’ve been correcting with brake, his first hop is already a bit too late if he can’t hold the bike up from the start. Not a good scenario and those guys shouldn’t even had sold him the bike IMO - he’s going to kill himself and possibly others...

After watching the video over and over it appears he can flat foot - so I think this is all about riding experience.
