Highside Dynamics

I found this while browsing the net, and thought some others here might find it informative. If we can drill this info into our brains it might save our asses some day.

That's fine going in a straight direction or entering a turn, but, he doesn't even discuss a high side resulting from throttle application on corner exit. Those seem to be the most violent, because weight has transferred to the rear wheel on acceleration, rear wheel steps out, and if it regains traction the suspension compresses/unloads turning you into a flying circus cannon shot man.

Yea, I can see how that would be the case, more power means more compression when it grabs again. All this is why I am relatively slow around corners still, better safe than sorry.
