A slide is a black line on the track.

To trail the front, you need all the feel you can have, a slide at that point is not a good thing. The edge of front tire bending under pressure at full lean is not sliding. IMO
Try it sometime. Closing the throttle and releasing the front brake will make the front end slide. At that point, only the throttle will stop it from being a crash.

And I stand by my statement that the fastest guys do it all the time.
