Definitely an "ah shit!" moment.  Some funny comments and not a lot of sympathy.

Assuming he survived and could speak afterwards, and that's a big assumption, how does he explain such utter stupidity?

"Okay, I was riding with no gear or helmet on a poorly maintained bike and I thought this would be an excellent time to impress my friends with that stoppie I've never tried. I know good timing, right. Well, to my chagrin and amazement my DOT approved Do Rag didn't work as well as the salesmen said it would, nor the forks I'd just purchased from some guy from Craigslist yesterday in a parking lot. Uh, could you pass the jello... And a straw"

Just wondering if the foo-rag was also SNELL-approved.  Could make a difference, eh?

My guess is, if he's doing a stoppie he probably isn't going to fast at that moment.  A few bruises, scraped skin and maybe a big knot on his head or shoulder.

I'm surprised there is not a doo rag made with a foam shell underneath.  Not that it would be DOT approved...  ummm.

At least in Fla, the foam would be "uncool" (as opposed to not cool = hot).

That would appear to be the case. Note the near full on right brake. I'd like to see follow up pics to this. A lot depends on upward
momentum of the rear end as to what may happen next. If the rear had stopped rising, then it would unceremoniously flop back
down onto the rear wheel while also leaning/falling to the left. The front wheel may bite harder whether the brake is applied or
not since it is well on its way to being perpendicular in opposition to further forward motion if the bike was still moving forward
then. In any event, this will have a tendency to begin pitching the bike and rider to the left. If, if, if..... Much depends on IF the
rear is still coming up and how fast and IF there is still forward movement of the bike. He is almost certainly headed for a face
plant. Regardless; we can see and know the bike is damaged and may very well be damaged further......... you can fix that........
but you can't fix stupid.
My 2 cents.
