What I see is him flailing around because he didn't have his feet where they belong, then instead of getting his ass back he slid forward to where he crushed his nuts into the neck. I also do not see any attempt to rev the engine to WOT. That's how you get the front to lift in a jump.

In my opinion, it's too late as soon as a Dork gets in the saddle.

It all boils down to one question. Are you riding the bike, or is it riding you?
