There are an amazing about of factors that would have to be included, surface, tire temp, lean angle, speed, acceleration (either positive or negative) The long and the short of it is that max traction actually works out to 1G in any direction,if you exceed that it starts to slip, and dynamic friction is less than static so that tends to be a downward spiral.

That being said I've had issues when I had to chop the throttle and it started pushing the front quickly, you have more time to recover the faster you are going, so at track speeds its sort of "meh, I pushed the front a bit"....on the street it will get your attention.

Its WAY more than 1mph though.
