it's when your handle bars violently jerk from right to left. Usually caused when the front wheel comes down sideways.

Here's a nice tankslapper clip to clarify

http://www.joe250.com/motorcycles/ride/Tankslapper2.wmv

You can get them from a few different situations, one was mentioned above, also from accelerating (usually from a liter bike) when your front end is super light and is slightly hovering over the ground, and also from high stoppies...All 3 of these are ones I've experienced and they all SUCK
