good to watch over and over, haha make me feel good inside.
as far as blake, man i wish i knew, mb a combo of staying on throttle, counterstreer and luck. wonder what he said to himself as he ducked his head down afterwards probably something like, i need a fukn beer after this ****
Nice! So with the Blake Young video, how did he save while fishtailing like that. Do you stay on the gas or let off, hit the gas even harder? Just blind luck??
chopping the throttle will almost every time lead to a high side. all chopping does is load the energy into your shock even more so; most times leading to a high side. THE most violent of crashes w/supersport bikes
you stay on throttle & depending what the bike's doing depends on giving more throttle, maintaining current amount of throttle, or slightly & we're talking micro adjustments here, that take years to learn, extremely slightly roll barely off, then back to same or more throttle; again depending on where the tail of the bike is.
pretty confident all these examples were saved due to staying @ same throttle or giving the bike more gas. hacking & his bike were down & he maintained throttle & somehow regained traction w/the rear end then once he's back on the bike slows down. likely due to disbelief that he saved it. don't remember if he poduimed or not, but do remember his interview after the race.
much better example w/interview afterwards
i would never suggest experimenting while street riding @ a pace where these sort of step outs w/the rear end can happen. even on a track that's not what you're trying to do. regardless, when riding a bike to it's limits you're gonna slide the rear @ some point
easiest answer is whatever caused the slide will typically recover under same throttle input. no more, or less. however, all answers are dependent on each situation......
with dirtbikes; almost always giving more gas, will straighten the bike out
