When he was on a customer Ducati, last corner, Valencia - sick slides...Think about World Superbike. When was the last time you saw someone kick out the back end of a motorcycle in WSBK. I honestly can't remember. They used to call Haga the King of Slide and I have yet to see him slide the rear since he last rode the R7.
but yes, you have a point.
I wonder if you could get traction control to work so well that it could ruin the spectacle of dirt track like it has road racing? Seriously - what if it was possible to traction control a mile bike well enough to actually make it faster with the wheels in line? What a tragedy that would be!
Oh well - the march of technology can't take the simple pleasure of do-nuts and feet up powerslides on my play bike away from me. <I hope>
