We've all learnt on field bikes haven't we? Probably best not to use a brand new R6 though...

Must have seen himself in his mirrors and thought, "what an absolute cock face i look in my t-shirt" and decided the best thing to do would be to hide in some long grass upsidedown.

I'm surprised by the lack of shock from the guy holding the video camera, It's like the rider does this sort of thing everyday?

i have a seen it in real life and felt it...when i was 16 on the back of a friend 17 years old with a kawasaki kh250 approaching some 30mph bends where if he had lent over we could have got round the bend easily...he bottled it, pulled the front brake and we went through the bend stopping in the dirt and a only suffering a front puncture. In France following a bmw in front of me through a set of double bends in the country, the bmw rider thought he was going too fast and braked, skidding and ending up in a field with scuffed side panels and dented pride...

some words can sound similar in different languages, at about 1min and 50 sec's does the camera man utter his languages version of "bell end? if so I must agree. LOL

The Stig - it's nice to see someone actually film the incident;) not their feet or some tree tops or anything but what they posted. I agree though, it's like he thought "here we go again". Or maybe watching his mate spend a minute trying to pull away in 2nd or 3rd he was expecting the level of riding displayed.

At 1:17 you here him get surprised by his own gear change, that little 'vroom' as the clutch comes in but the throttle stays open.
