I always looked at it this way...

If you flew and the bike didn't, you high sided.
If you're between the bike and the object your sliding/flying/tumbling towards...you highsided
If the bike is between you and the object your sliding/flying/tumbling towards, you low-sided.

If you hit the ground, then your bike lands on you...you high-sided.

Actually...

rear tire loss = low side

front tire loss = low side

rear tire loss and regain = high side

Sounds to me like he just went into a tank slapper, and bailed.

I've only witnessed one high-side, and the guy had bones sticking out of his wrists when I got to him...

Chase! I tihnk you're right. That makes more sense than a plain highside.

Its easier to put to much input on the clip on and then over correct mid turn, thus causing a violent tankslap. Check out this vid. Except without the recovery part lol... Its more of a High Side caused by the rear sliding out but you get my point.

What the happened then? If you were losing the rear, then you should have low sided. I doubt those street tires had enough traction to "grab" after you let off the throttle.

ok before i write this up again let me start by saying first and foremost it was completely my fault. im not making excuses, im just explaining what i feel like happened. if im not mistaken the corner was a bit bumpy, and me being the fat that i am knowing that squoddy's suspension is too soft for me i should have backed off. but no. my ego got the better of me and well quite frankly i wanted to rail the munchkin mobile.

so i guess what happened was i was cranked over in the corner hit some type of bump, back tire started skipping around a bit. i panicked it tried to catch round 3 times i believe i stood it up and rolled off and as i did it bucked me rode the side for a split second before sliding face/chest/elbows/knees down before rolling a few times.

I can't believe this many people didn't know what a high side is.

If you don't know what it is, how can you prevent/ correct it?

This is an incredible book, I promise it will make you ten times a better rider if you practice everything in a place like the track, or huge empty parking lots(free track)

I know what it is, most ppl know what it is, but not how to make it happen or not happen.

Thanks for the advice on the book!

Arrow

This one is even better for street riding, I don't get in nearly as many "oh " moments after this.
This book will show you ways of how to use your peripherals <--sp? so that you can read signs to the left of you while looking right. It's really hard at first but it's almost second nature now and makes a killer difference on freeways.
There are honestly too many examples to list, just take my word for it. You'll enjoy riding so much more.

100 percent correct, I have tried everything and sometimes you just break loose and cant get it back. Ive looped the whole thing around, you never can tell sometimes especially if you land on your head just gets foggy.
