When you're turning and at slow speed it's surprising how little it takes to topple a bike.
Its because your ovaries were unbalanced

Why would I be surprised? As of yet I havent encountered any dirt or gravel that has brought me down at any speeds, much less a tiny pebble. Regardless of what the video is about, I'm pointing out my observations so that newer riders don't go around freaking out over every little pebble they see on the road.

Lol thanks for the encouragement on this. I was thinking about that yesterday. I just bought a bike and need to replace the lower crankcase before I get to finally ride it. Ive ridden dirt bikes a few times and a 150 scooter a few times too but I dont think it'll be the same riding a street bike.

I have met her. In fact I ran her off the track at Heartland Park a couple of years ago, or so she claims. She came to my trailer and collected my video and used some of my video in this:

Running off Track... (HPT) - YouTube

I think that was my first track day ever.

She was on a 250 super moto. It topped out about 70mph.

You'd be surprised. The current-gen 250Rs (that's what she's on) have a nasty habit of snapping to full-lock whenever the front tire loses traction. That's what caused me to drop mine in my driveway over what I thought were just some pebbles.

So I have to admit that I didn't have the sound on when I watched the vids. However, it looks like she wasn't looking where she needed to go or something because you were quite a distance away and she wasn't really gaining on you that fast. She had quite a bit of space to recovery or get around you... or so I would think. But it also depends on her skill level too.
