A biker lost his balance and fell down from the bike in a nearby drainage. After the fall he got up himself, took the bike and flew away. Place of accident - unknown.
That was a serious fall.

I love how he picks up the bike and goes back in the opposite direction. Must've rounded the corner, bought some painkillers, cried a bit and stuck back all that skin that must have peeled off from the skid.

The dude did not even spare a second to review the damage he had done to himself. That is one tough dude!

That said, the road barely curves, he gave up too soon, he could have held his line with ease. Especially on clean dry asphalt. It was almost like he saw his mother in law walking in the middle of the road. Which also explains why he did a u-turn.

While those two lines might or might not necessarily be true for the biker, they do tell a lot about you if put in such a situation I guess

To me it looks like he wanted to scoot before Uncle could assess the damage to his plants which actually saved his backside and who knows, he must have lost it at the same curve before too.

Lamborghini driver crashes into police kiosk & takes selfie with it.

This Lamborghini Gallardo owner, crashed the vehicle into a traffic police kiosk in Bengaluru. The vehicle went out of control at the CTO Circle, across the Cubbon Park Metro Station at about 2:30 PM on Sunday. The car hit the kiosk at a high speed and the impact caused the wall of the kiosk to break down.

At the moment of the accident, the owner of the car abandoned the vehicle and fled from the scene and also removed the registration plates of the vehicle so that it cannot be traced back to him. However, a few hours later, the owner returned to the location and posed with the severely damaged kiosk. He also posted the pictures on the social media platform. Soon the post became viral and had to take it down.

Idiots and Supercars don't mix well... let us just be thankful that he didn't end up injuring or killing anyone, apart from his ego.

There are numerous similar videos of people showboating supercars and superbikes in crowded city roads. Some are truly shocking in terms of the risks they take to blast through crowded traffic.

It is not so long ago that India's posh cars were driven with care by professionals. Now they are rich boy's toys.

I think he was not happy with the outcome of his first attempt and wanted to try again, hence turned around.

The guy hit it off only to realize he is heading into bunch of waiting cars on the other side. He over-corrects his mistake and ends up where he eventually did!

Thankfully (for him) the others were not so eager for a quick acceleration. Else, he would have had it much worse.

The thing with Bangalore roads is this - if one is not familiar with the roads already, it's best to slow it down. One never knows where the speedbump gets in the way; what potholes await; where lanes merge; where a divider begins; where a biker is liker to appear unnoticed. Every road here gives an impression a disaster is in the offing!

This is the biggest mistake, Period. These are public roads and not race tracks. 'Hitting off' should not happen in the first place.

I have a feeling that he was practicing cornering there and after the fall he went back to his bunch of road ricers
