Holy crap, WTF were they listening too!


that didnt' look good, at least he had a lid on. Looks like he's got a jacket and boots (maybe) on?

I know your not suppose to fight the tankslapper, but should you try and bring the front end back up? Not that I'll try, but it'd be nice to know...

That totally sucks! I think if that shit happens the only thing left to do is let go......Can't say I want to test that theory.

In theory, deceleration places more weight on the front, which makes the slapper worse. A little acceleration, again, in theory, should UNweight the front wheel and help straighten it out. Weirdly enough, in a pretty long time of riding, I've never had more than a little wobble. Lucky me, knock on wood.

would a stearing dampner have prevented that?
Yeah, a steering damper would have helped from it gettin that bad that fast.

That would have a suck factor of about 12 on a scale of ten.
