So today I was crusin over to bike night(I won a DMP rear stand with a free raffle ticket by the way). Anyways when I was cruising over there I was on the street in second gear doing about 45 and I took both of my hands off of the bars to fix my jacket, right then the tire hit a small pothole and started going into a head shake and quickly got worse. As soon as I felt it I went to reach for the bars and in the 1/2 a second it took to reach the bars the wobble was about 1/2 to full lock. So I reached out my fingers to grab the brake, but right then I remembered from everyone here that the only way to get out of it is to gas it. So I quickly gassed it and yanked back as hard as I could and the tire came off the ground about 2" and it all straitened out. Thanks everyone for offering useful advice to help everyone out.

Quick thinking. Im hoping Ill have the reflexes to remember that if it happens to me.

Although... it might not have happened if you kept both, or at least one hand on the bars. ;)

that took a LOT of balls, dude - well done, and way to overcome the panic! :hail
Lol thanks. But the way I see it I had 3 choices. Grab the brakes and slow it down, let it ride itself out, gas it out. Brakes didnt seem good, and I think that my balls were too small to just ride it out and let it self correct(I was stinkin scared!), so the gas it out sounded like the best choice. So its not large balls its a lack of
