Excellent! Outstanding line! I hope someone steals it for a sig line. I think that I will post that on my top box for a while and see how much fun it draws. Mucho thanx for that one.

More like rolling the throttle on while on the limit of adhesion.
Been there done that.

The rider's right hand was hard on the front brake. In a curve, Go to a "first timers" track day. See what the instructors say about braking in a corner.

That guy came real close to having the handlebars(bike) come down on his head. At first it looked like he was pulling a Blues Brothers parallel park job to the curb.

He could save some money and take the MSF Basic Rider's Course too.

Im not all that fast but have ridden with very fast on a racetrack .I didnt see any of those fast guys trying to slide or "back it in".
I cant think of any good reason to ever get a tire sliding on pavement .There are faster ways to get around a curve.
Before some one points to a guy like Gary McCoy the" slide king" just let me say that guy was not human .Maybe put there to sell tickets and create attention.

True, there are exceptions. King Kenny Roberts winning the 1978 World Championship.
He blew everyone away with his dirt track style and knee dragging he saw The Flying Finn first use.

I think it's called show boating, like cars drifting for the sake of it. To be done with intent while racing it has purpose but other wise none.

That hits the nail: theatrics. I suspect that a lot of these Squids got inspiration to ride from movies where there is a lot of stunt riding for the camera.

Makin's here for a new reality TV series: Dancing with the Squids...

What instructors say, for people new to the track, is to get your braking, all your braking done, but the time you hit " turn in", roll to the "apex" and then get on the gas as you lift the bike, from apex to "exit".

BUT...that is only for beginners, before they are more advanced and can learn "trail braking" That is getting a percentage of your braking done by turn in, but still be be braking a bit, from turn in to apex....."trailing off the brake" as you get to the apex, and then same as before, on gas, and lifting bike up from apex to exit and out of turn.

Trail braking is faster way around track and a more advanced technique/skill.

You might be assuming the guy in pic is a beginner and not a more advanced rider. People at every skill level crash...just sayin'.
