Awesome dismount, textbook, on his feet and running.

I've always caught hell when mentioning that learning how to dismount a bike and/or lay it down properly is a useful technique. The argument is always that advancement in brake tech make it obsolete. Brakes here? He may have gotten lucky, we'll never know, but he definitely was well aware of what to do and had the right thought process. Been there before maybe?

Dismount technique my aZZ, LOL... He was just lucky being thrown out of the bike like he was, watch the video again. Fine he didn't grab the grips like most would do but at least 80% was luck on the way he fell... Even the sportbike dude at the start seems to be coming out of braking or slowing down, when our bagger stunt man doesn't even slow down or apply any brakes, even when the floorboard scratched the first time...probably didn't knew the course or was trying to keep up with the sportbike... Fool...

Could be Fabski, could be, I did allow for "luck". Nevertheless it proved effective!!! Truthfully, I believe some measure of experience and/or confidence had to be there, it's apparent by his reactions. Or not.

Yup. It's easy for us to pass judgement sitting in front of the monitor but in such a situation it's just fractions of a second to react and/or realize "WTF just happened?!?" in his case it's a "WIN" when you consider how he could have ended otherwise...most of us would end with the handlebars arount our neck and oir butts inside the saddle bags...

Flipping throught the Rock store photos raises a question. Are most HD touring bike riders 100lbs overweight?

Actually, I'm not buying that. The crash was caused by too much throttle, it's only a fat, under-powered, wheezy Harley, all he had to do was roll off, it practically happened in slow motion, he had ages to stop doing what was causing it, but he just kept blindly on and on doing it, it was an epic and spectacular cockup and you'd have to be an idiot or drunk or something to do it.
