wow, that guy went for a nice ride...
I'm assuming he just tapped the front brakes a bit too hard / too quickly. A good lesson on why not to be doing 60 mph in the rain, in a city, and grabbing a fist full of brakes i'd reckon.
I'm baffled why people love to post videos that make them look like idiots.
Or is this a public service message? "Braking is different in the rain". Thanks for the tip.
One thing i SOOO BADLY wanted him to show was the end result of this gloves. Wonder if the leather in the palms had worn through. The wet road would probably have helped reduce friction but still.
My buddy crashed with some OK quality gloves and the leather just wore out messing up his palms. I got the A* Gp pro gloves and recently got technic Xcelerator kangaroo gloves but still am afraid of the same fate. Wound not mind a couple extra layers of kevlar/leather there.
I ride in the rain....
... I have ABS.

drugs r bad, mmmkay.
HAHAHAHAHAHA, for fook sake!! No cars, nothing and a piece of cake turn but he still dropped it........ i can only imagine what he'll do if he had a super sport. LOL
did he just forget to put his foot down when he stopped?? I've watched a few pirates do that lol
Back in college with a whole 8 months riding experience I went riding. Forgot the gloves, but it was only 5 minutes to campus and back. Until I lost the front end on spring sand in the parking lot.
The 25 minute ride to the hospital was less than enjoyable. Most of the skin off my palms gone, sand and gravel ground into the flesh and the smell of blood baking onto the head pipes. And then the emerg nurse who proceeded to educate me as she scrubbed out the dirt, rocks and sand.
I've hit the deck several times since. The gloves have always lasted to the end of the slide. Most see trashed after, but I've kept the excessive pain to a minimum.
The difference between you and me .........
Yea, when I see people riding without gloves, i always involuntarily give the biggest "wtf?!" look. To me it's plain uncomfortable to ride without gloves. Even if i was gonna bomb around in my ed hardy tank and cargo shorts, i'd be wearing gloves.
