UGH. I know that feeling too, Danny. When I highsided, the bars also went into a tankslap. The throttle was jerked right out of my hands. It is easier to say, "stay on the throttle," than to actually practice it.

Highsides happen soo fast, it's hard to do anything.
The best you can do is stay light on your feet soo when the rear catches grip you can try to soak it up with your legs instead of getting bucked off.
