He wound up getting a ride to the hospital in the back of an ambulance with a shattered right arm. The bike ghost rode itself down the road about 300 feet and crashed into an embankment. Crazy to watch....

No wonder he was driving so erradically for the previous 5 miles. While lying in the road he said to the folks attending to him "I am so stupid, that was a brand new bike and this was my maiden voyage, my first time out".

I think he didn't get proper rider education, if any, and was riding waaaay too much bike for a noobie.

Damn! I wish I would have bought that dash cam a few weeks ago....
Was this somewhere near Hwy 1? I nearly low sided on Hwy 1 going to hot into a left hander on my SV a few years back.
