Notice it says "If you wish to take clutch control out of the mix, the secret to supermoto is to install a STM slipper clutch." HHHHHMMMMM is this why I have slipper's in both my KTM's? And yes I do realize the slipper caused the premature death of my Duke. But I know why and will fix that on the next motor for the Duke! Nice read Nate!!!

Practice on a dirtbike. Cheaper, easier, and hurts a lot less when you hit the ground.

Take the AMerican Supercamp in the fall in Harrington Delaware if you really want to learn how to do it. Great 2 day camp, they provide the XR100's to learn on, and you are getting feedback from Chris Carr. (Multiple time grand national champion....and fun as hell to watch him going at it.)

After running it wide on a descending left right turn where I had the ass end sliding the wrong direction, I was on the side of road going 3 to 5 mph. Dunked it on the gravel turning back onto the rode. Broke shoulder inside the first 100 miles of owning my bike, classic.

I've been trying again lately. Getting the confidence to slide it more than five feet with the bike actually leaned or turning is kind of like finding the balancing point in a wheelie for the first time. My wheelies suck, but no broken bones yet.

That is the same concept for a street bike

"Riding a race bike is an art - a thing that you do because you feel something inside."

"I don't like being famous - it is like a prison. And driving for Ferrari would make it far worse."

"I race to win. If I am on the bike or in a car it will always be the same."

"I'm Valentino Rossi. And I want to be a person, not an icon."
