They... We all ride bikes here, i trail the front all the way to the apex on track too.
Mdubya says: " close the throttle to induce front end slide " ... makes no sense.
We are talking about corner entry here, so at what part between braking point and apex you can induce a slide by closing the throttle... when you are allready heavy on the front brake, throttle CLOSED and engine braking.
And what is the reason to slide the front, to slow down, to get wider line... Better technicues for both of those than sliding the front.
