Almost died today - April 21, 2006, 12:21 AM

Well, maybe not exactly "almost died", I just felt like saying that. And it wasn't today, it was yesterday. I just didn't get a chance to post it yesterday. But it was quite a RUSH!

This is strictly for educational purposes b/c I would like to know how to power slide properly (I will practice this more on the track of course).

Let me set the premise first: This was on a one-way road. Road was completely clean of debris, and no change of elevation or bumps, and plenty of run-off space. Fully leaned and traveling at a high rate of speed. (also look at diagram below to help illustrate this)

I wasn't purposely trying to do what I'm about to describe, but at the rate of speed and the angle of lean...it just happened. What I was trying to do was widen my point of exit. My brain couldn't figure out this feeling at the time, but it was like I was floating/sliding to the right while I was leaning left. It felt like both tires were doing this. I went from the left over to the middle of this road. Then I quickly shifted my wait to the right (against the turn) to bring the bike back up as I exited the turn. Carnage was somewhere behind me, I'll let him add/comment on what he saw. He later told me that it looked like I was going to low side b/c it looked like the bike was on its frame sliders. lol

Was this a power slide? If so, I want to know how to go about learning how to do it, instead of it happening unexpectedly.

This obviously happened inadvertently. Tips and advice are welcome, but please spare me the lecture of not doing this on the street. I'm aware of that! I wasn't trying to do it on purpose and I'm not going to try to practice it on the street.

I want to know is how to properly do it. Enlighten me...

The limits are very close to the edge, hhahaaa. I watch the pros at Daytona and Sears Point back in the day and these guys slide around the whole turn, I mean literally like a car in the snow, controlled and beautiful.

On the street is goofy, too many varialbes, cuz like I said you are right at the limit. Glad you made it through and I am sure you will get even better on the track.

Props to ya.


Can't choose between the R1 and the 10R so I am keeping both but settled with an 1198S when I came home

Keep it up!!!!!!!

Sliding isn't as hard as you think...get a set of diablo corsas and go to the track and you can pretty much slide them at will...either by backing the bike in or pinning the throttle (at the apex) the reason I say corsas is that they slide in a very predictable manner, you can really get the bike loose if it's very hot out.

I like to practice sliding both tires on my dirt bike, the dirt tends to allow you to get the bike sideways with little effort and since it's so easy to throw the bike into corners sideways it's great practice and when you fall the bike usually does not get banged up too bad.

Careful sliding around on the streets...run off and emergency aid is not as available as it is at the track.

From the sound of it, I think you'd have a blast on a set of Corsas on a hot day...

You know this brings up a good point about tires.

My 218's were very good at limit (let me tell you my limit is no where near the tires). I put a pilot Power on the rear and I do not really like it. It seems to slide in most corners and I am not used to that. Seems like the PP are more prone to it, maybe I should lower the pressure some, just not impressed with the PP.

Sorry to jack your thread.

Keep it up!!!!!!!
