An overconfident motorcyclist attempts to enter a corner at a low angle and ends up getting his pride (and his bike) hurt.
In the early hours of this morning, a driver was travelling along the PIE when he noticed the dangerous stunt.
In the video, a motorcyclist appears from the left of the cam car at high speed as both vehicles enter a bend.
The rider maintains his speed as he corners the bend at a shallow angle.
Maybe he’s trying to be like the MotoGP champion, Valentino Rossi?
As the cam car is about to clear the bend, trouble strikes the overconfident rider as he starts to accelerate before the bend ends.
The motorcyclist suddenly falls with his bike, which sends him across the road and into the highway guardrail.
Luckily, the silver car in front of the cam car manages to stop in time, narrowly missing the rider by an inch.
The video ends with the cam car approaching the smashed bike.
The rider steps out from the bushes surrounding the guardrail, dusting himself off as he walks to his bike.
Another concerned motorcyclist stops and picks up a mobile phone as he makes a quick U-turn to help the rider out.
Looks like someone needs to get back to driving school and learn how to properly perform a corner.

Here are a few things one must consider when riding through a bend:
