When one sees this, please keep in mind how much it owes to the late great Mark Donahue and his Friction Circle Theory.

Well, he has been dead for 44 years now, and forgotten by too many.
He was a really good engineer as well as being a seriously hot shoe.
Not your typical championship driver, that's for sure.

Thanks for the video, very informative. It's a very smart way to view available grip

Glad others can use it, I didn't think about it, so it was "news to me" and I figure some others could also benefit from it.

Another way to describe what Keith Code called your "traction dollar". It describes the basic equation of traction without giving any real advice on how to take advantage of it in the real world past applying the brakes and steering in finer increments than most average riders are used to. Why is that? What it boils down to is the actual visceral execution of what is referred to as feeling traction, where you are listening to what the motorcycle is telling you, in this case the bars going for want of a better term limp in your hands. It's the first few milliseconds of that feeling that your motor cortex senses and applies the necessary signals to your muscles to bring the front end back to a trustworthy state. Simple. All you need to do is impress the moves necessary in there, and there is no shortcut for that. The best part? Your brain's learning curve is exponential, and subsequent experience refines and broadens the impressed knowledge at an ever accelerating rate.

Now you intellectually have the information, and that's a good start.

Information are facts read / heard / watched.

Knowledge is the ability to apply information to specific situations, and to know what information is pertinent.

Experience is the end result of the application of information tempered and ordered by knowledge.

Wisdom is the experience that gives you the knowledge that you will never have all the information you need to be absolutely certain of anything, particularly when riding.

Take it to the track and learn it.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.
