What went wrong for this rider?

RJ asks, what did he do wrong here?

RENOWN YouTube star Royal Jordanian (RJ) is seen struggling off-road whilst riding with a pillion passenger. To his credit, the bike wasn't dropped and most bikers don't even chance taking their adventure bikes off-road.

RJ commented on his video... "There was one thing I didn’t do which would have made it much easier. Any guesses?"
