James06CBR said:Highside- Occurring in a curve which may be caused by a locked wheel due to excessive braking or more commonly by applying too much throttle when exiting a corner causing the rear tire to lose traction.
lowside- Once a tire slips in a curve, it will move outwards under the motorcycle and cause the bike to lay down in the direction the driver is already leaning to counteract the centrifugal force, this can lead to a lowside accident.
damn moe well said sounds like you might have experienced one or the outher lol j/k.......... very well writtenmoeman said:High-side crash
This is the name for the type of crash where the motorcycle over-balances, flinging the rider off by pivoting around the tires. It usually happens in turns, or as the final phase of a tank-slapper. Crashes of this type commonly leave the rider injured or dead, due to the impact of hitting the ground after being flung off.
This relatively benign crash occurs when the tires lose traction in a turn, and the motorcycle slides away from the rider. Assuming the rider is wearing protective gear and doesn't hit anything solid, there's an excellent chance of getting up completely unharmed from a low-side. The motorcycle will usually suffer abrasion damage, such as scratches on the fairing, or a broken turn signal or hand lever. This damage is commonly minor enough that the bike can be ridden safely afterward.
