I wonder if that's a kevlar t-shirt on the rider's back, especially since the passenger was smart enough to land on top of the rider.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

If I had to guess, I'd say he took his trail braking a little too far.

Either he skidded the front under lean or his tire was made of ice cream.

What is that, an R6? Kind of looks lowered too, or maybe the weight of the passenger loaded up the suspension more. Being aware of your maximum lean angle when the bike is loaded: also important.

If you notice , they are completely down , and yet the driver still is holding on to the grips... At least one of them, talk about going down with the ship.
