That's pretty wild, makes you wonder if he had time to lay it on over, instead of taking the high road. I'm sure it happens too fast to think about too much though.

This is where he knew he was in trouble. Right b-4 it hit the fan. Check out his eyes! Glad he was able to walk away.

Great pictures.
IMO he wasn't in trouble until he took his right foot off the peg, but he screwed up as soon as he chopped the throttle ... (He should have stayed on it and pushed down with his knee as soon as the rear stepped out of line)
These things happen so fast though; it's easy to look back at them and say "if" and "should"... Walking away from them is how we learn.
