Well .. I'd say there's more to it. Ever so often I have that problem on the great roads around Houston in corners where they're so washed out that the rear wheel slides. If you can do this on a track it sure helps you in nasty situations on the street . Gotta learn this

Bro I hope you are kiddin.... I would never in a million years try to do this to get out of a slide on the street! If you notice he is accelerating while doing this, if you don't have traction at the rear wheel and are sliding out of control more power on the rear wheel is NOT what you are looking for. Granted if you wanted to learn this to look bad I am all about that but don't learn it to avoid crashing... barking up the wrong tree!

My senior brothas: Just for reference what is the text book rule if you lose traction on the rear wheel? Obviously this depends on where you lose traction but for the most part I have always just let up a bit on the throttle, held my line, and hoped the rear wheel hooked back up. Always seemed to work, I don't think I would ever accelerate if the tire had no traction but I don't want to be dead wrong on that advice...

Not the fastest way around for sure but it would take some skills to consistently control and looks way cool. I’ve read some racers use it to get the bike “pointed in” a turn off the straight. Guess they’re using the rear brake for that? I saw a racer sliding it into turn 17 at msrh on the 4th. He was sic fast but I’m not sure if he was doing that for speed or show.
