You should read the review of the new ducati 1098 by Doug Polen in Motorcyclist. He loses the front, but saves it on his knee, sliding far enough so the front tire regains grip...he wore his knee slider through and wore a hole in his boot. :pow:

I'll second that. Can't wait for October :) Some of you yanks should consider coming over, our dollar is only about 80% the value of yours and we've got tons of good roads less than 1 and 2 days away from the island!

Back around '89, I went around a bumpy curve on my Yamaha Radian and the back end kicked out far enough that tire squealed. I went through that corner many times after that trying to do it again but it never happened (obviously I was even less bright then). My tires were Kenda Mirages, so I shouldn't have expected them to grip.
