"The riders have to be prepared to open the throttle, let the bike spin-up and make sure that if something goes wrong they can 'swallow it', body wise. "OK all you keyboard warriors, enlighten me on what your take is on this comment." I ink hes saying The rider needs to have a smooth and relaxed body position, and when the rear steps out they need to be able to maintain this while making subtle adjustments to compensate for the rear tyre coming around. The trick is to know instantly when the slide is occurring ( preferably having deliberately instigated it) but then to react smoothly rather than provoke a highside. If you want to see the epitome of the technique you have to watch Stoner at turn 3 Phillip Island, in person.
