Nice vid

One thing is you might look in to either getting your throttle cable slack adjusted or work on being smoother on the throttle. You're either getting on the throttle too abruptly or there is too much slack in your cable or something- you can hear how abruptly you get on the gas. The cool thing is, when you high-side because of it, your friends get a good show

The patches affect traction very little. The only time it affects traction at all is when it's wet, and even then it's surprisingly grippy.

They didn't even see it I don't think. Just heard it. Have to wait and see what Ralph says as he was one of the guys standing at that corner. I'd also say that it is more than likely me being too abrupt with it. Felt better in the morning, but as the day went on I got more sloppy and started to notice I was doing it even more and eventually had the rear step out.
