besides being a better driver what would you do if you found yourself heading towards a cliff:
A) suck up seat material into your anus
B) turn hard and lay the bike down
C) full throttle to see how far you can fly??
D) blame it on steering problems

Probably lost focus for a sec, and then when realized what was happening, hit the brakes, stood the bike up, and went over the side.

You can hear that he pulls in the clutch prior to going into the dirt. I think he meant to pull the brake and got confused as to which side of the handlebars had the brake, lol!

The better biking courses teach to stay off the brakes, and to lean the bike over more, don't do what this neophyte rider did, freeze-up, and head straight off the outside of the curve. Staying off the brakes helps to make use of available traction to make the curve successfully. Braking and trying to turn uses up what traction you have. This is a good time for countersteering, and not braking.
