I bet the "rights fees" would be plenty along with many on site paying customers if he was willing to try again. Those type of motorcycle drivers infuriate me. I must admit to have had a thought or two about clipping one of those types and see if he could outfly a bird in the air.

A Table from a recent article in the BMJ http://www.bmj.com/content/349/bmj.g7094.
It seems that males (especially in that magical 14 to 35 age group and often fueled by alcohol are much more likely to off themselves than women. (P<0.0001). What a surprise. The Darwin Awards are a pretty impressive catalog of stupidity.

Believe me, they infuriate almost all other motorcyclists too.
