"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.
