"Or you can modulate a delicate and nuanced intermediate throttle position that allows the tire to climb gradually and controllably back to the slip peak.

Do you have the skill to ride this slip peak?
"

Strangely enough, I have done exactly that several times by instinct.

Freaked me out after the fact. Can't rely on instinct to save your ass. Gonna get a 'tard one of these days just so I can practice on a bike meant to be dropped.

I hate that feeling of the bike pivoting under me. It's like being on a boat in rough seas - makes me head all wobbly.

Neat article!
