That's what you use to hold your plastics and panniers on with after you do this.

I believe the crash bungs mentioned above was referring to 'sliders'. They protect the plastics in the event of a tipover.

Dang eh, can't believe anything you read on the internet!

I must have read the wrong biography then or maybe it's a case of there is more than one way to ride a bike around a corner?

I'm going to kick up more dust and say this looks like a good example of counter-steering.

as to the definition, he is. But just so you know, he initiated that on the approach, not the departure...

So technically, the back stepped out first and he's not counter steering a power slide ... And WTF was I going on about?

This is a classic example of somebody leaning it way over and "hanging off" so they can get a memorable photo... well, it sure worked for this guy!

Got ya, I'm pretty sure I've never done a power slide on purpose.

On the power side, it seems punchy and twitchy since you have 4 or 5 variables. Too much/little throttle. Too much/little front brake, and road surfaces are not consistent.

Something I wouldn't feel to comfortable doing.

On the compression side, it's fun (and controllable*) as hell! :lol3

*To catch it, just pull the clutch or add a pinch of throttle so the tires match up to the pavement. START SMALL! Do not try to do long or heavily leaned over slides in the beginning!

Just for fun
 
In the supermoto race footage above, what you call power slide I call hanging out the back end while braking. Heck, he almost "laid her down".
