What happened ?


Here's 2 videos I saw on Youtube, and on the one, to me it looks like he chopped the throtte, on the painted line ?

The 2'nd one ? I don't know what happened ?

The reason I posted this is because it's my greatest fear, the front end washing out. Since I had it happen to me almost 2 years ago when I had frost all around the side of my tire from riding through the yard. What are reasons for losing the front end besides dragging hard parts ?

Again, I'm not trying to start...."what an idiot for crossing the lines" thread (UNLESS that's what cause it ?). We all know how that can end.
lack of traction seems to be the cause...not to say you can't ride over a wet painted line...just be more upright

2nd video
Noob on a new bike. I say noob because he was all over the road, using both lanes, and poor control of the bike. In the slowmo segment at 1:40 as he dips into the turn, he's on/off/on/off the throttle causing his body and weight to shift and upsetting the bike.
right off the muscle from my experience, the roads look damp and the temps are on the cool side. no leaves on the trees and the blacktop has a slight wet look that gave me that impression. plus, with all of those factors in one and crossing a slick painted surface and down he goes. I'm glad he's alright and didn't get run over.
Looks like the white line slide, not the first person to have gone down on one....
Crappy cold and wet roads. to fast for conditions and those lines will get you, just as fast as tar snakes.
