Head shake save!

This is at MSRC in Texas.. This particular turn i took wide to pass someone. I hit some bumps on the far outside causing the front to get light. AFter the headshake started my feet came off and i was flopping everywhere. It happened for so long that i had an actual thought process onhow to stop it. I rested my stomach against the tank and was able to get enough weight off the front and it settled down... Scared the shit out of me none the less

That's freaky. Does anyone know the best way to get out of it?
Does an electric steering damper help against slappers more than the analog ones?

Great save! I think I know what really helped you from going down.... That Motomummy reservoir sock of course.

Confuses vag for cock... That would be "cock" as in rooster. Which might be even worse. And takes more duct tape to avoid a damn mess. Has lead to interesting nights.

Loosen your grip as much as possible, and accelerate

Re: Head shake save!

Did you have a chocolate milk "shake" in your leathers after that?

I was collecting my thoughts. Thats the slowest section of the track coming up as well. I picked it back up pretty quickly but just cut it out of the video.

Re: Head shake save!

It happened to you twice in the exact same spot of the track??!!!! The second one was a lot longer and scarier too. You should let them know you had that happen twice in the same corner
