Highside-Anatomy.jpgA highside occurs when a rear tire suddenly regains traction during a slide, suddenly and forcefully flicking the bike upright, often throwing the rider into the air. Highsides are usually caused by applying too much throttle in a corner, but can also be caused by too much brake. The latter is often the reason cruisers highside on the road. Valentino Rossi's season ending highside prompted many to ask for a clearer definition, this photo sequence breaks the accident down step by step. This guy was luckier than Rossi, walking away with a smile and a big repair bill.  >
