Hi all, I believe that what I encountered was a high side. I was making a right hand turn when I felt the bike sliding to the left then snap back to the right. I read over some of the posts, but I dont think anyone really answered the question. Now I dont care what dirt riders do, I am not riding on the dirt. And would like to know what causes both a low and high side and what needs to be done to avoid them. Also what can you do if you are fast enough once you feel the effects.
When I was in my turn, like i stated the bike started to slid and then flicked back to the right, so i know I lost traction. Here is what I did, lean the opposite way and maintained the same throttle input, didnt not hit the brakes or give it more gas. I was lucky enough not to go down. I want to make sure, I never go down because of a silly low or high side, only because it was me that did something wrong. Hitting the brakes into the turn then giving it gas, etc. In this instance, I do not recall what I did wrong. I was hitting both my front and rear brakes then started giving my bike some throttle and into the turn i go. I think and believe I had both brakes disengaged. It was a dry day, no rain, didnt see any dirt.
Any help will be appreciated and I will continue to look through this forum for related subject.
