I'd say that's a write off.

Very lucky guy.

How in the heck did he walk from that one? I would be lying there still.

You go somewhat quickly from "Can I fix it?" to "There's no fixing that, I'd better get away from it."

But what stops the rider, it looks like he should have carried on flying down the sidewalk, instead he stops as quickly as the bike and even bounces backwards? I can't see anything that would stop him? Very lucky escape..

What caused him to change his flight direction while in mid-air? To me that is also amazing.

Looks like he hit something between the pole and the wall - stuff flew off, including what looks like his helmet? I was trying to figure out what he was trying to do, looks like he hit something before entering the frame because he's already going sideways. What a "lucky" hit - not lucky for the bike, but lucky for him and that nobody else got hit!
