|Track Time-101 Information and advice about getting on a road course yourself.|

Slides can be caused from so many different things, but the main ones are:
-bad lines thru a turn
-body position on the bike
-tire condition / tire type / tire pressure
Power to Weight Ratio is responsible more for tire spin when applying throttle, whether it's while your still leaned over or already vertical.
Not sure how you missed what's easily one of, if not THE biggest cause of a slide: mid-corner steering input.
I see riders with excellent lines, great body position, perfect tires & outstanding suspension get flung off a bike.... 99 times out of 100 it was caused by a mid-corner steering input.
Brand new tires are of course going to spin later than used tires and in turn will be somewhat of an exception to the ranges I list, this advice is going to be aimed more toward tires that have some use on them already since most people don't use new tires for every session they do on the track.
