Oh noes!!!

I learned the hard way that tires are pretty important! Figured my front slick had another session or two left in them... go to pass someone in a double apex.. lost the front end.. Thankfully it was a lowside, but my head hit pretty hard and broke 2 ribs.

Gotta rider harder bruh! lol

front brake, down shift, keep pressure on rear brake, make it slide. That will keep tires hot enough so they don't crack

You need compression to do that.

I think he is referring to lack of your engine compression. It's ok. Someone clarified it for me as well.
