And why the hell is she flipping us off? She doesn't even know us.
Putting finger(s) on the brake lever is also a good way to keep the throttle steady. I do it all the time. Perhaps that's what she's up to.

You can use the front brake in a turn - just not very hard.

You only have 100% traction to use. It can be used for braking, accelerating, or cornering.

It can be used in any combination of the above, so long as the combination does not exceed 100%!

So what happens in a controlled slide? Are they above the traction limit, or are they somehow still under it, even though the tire is spinning?

A controlled slide is likely using exactly 100% of the traction! Keep in mind that either wheel has only 100%, and that while on wheel might be using less than 100%, that doesn't mean the excess is available to the other wheel.

Then again, I was really only talking about normal conditions, and not controlled slides, or similar, which have no normal legitimate place on public roads IMHO!

You are now at the dynamic traction limit. Dynamic friction is typically about 2/3 of static friction, which is one reason why it's easier to keep something moving than to start it moving.

This means that you can't carry the same speed, and if you approach the limit too rapidly, you will overshoot the dynamic traction limit and loop it off into the weeds...
