What's happening in this video?

What exactly did he do to save it?

He caused it by giving full throttle and then backed right off.

Perfect example of a highside but was going slow enough he did not get tossed off bike. Good save on his part.

poor control in the first place, if you watch carefully you can see the on/off of the throttle, combine that with the weight transfer of the bike and the rear looses traction.

highsides tend to kick you out of the seat, the good thing with that is all of your body weight is instantly transferred to your pegs, this means the centre of gravity is put as low as possible to make the bike more stable.

combine the lucky kick out of the seat with an instinctive "turn into the skid" and he saves it.

Work on positive throttle control for next time and this wont happen

He cut the throttle and used the clutch to help the rear wheel regain traction... And let the bike have the freedom to right ITSELF.

weighting the pegs does NOT lower the center of gravity.

To answer the OP's question, when the rear end kicks out, do not chop the throttle. Slowly roll off the throttle as the rear end comes back in line.

If you leave too much throttle, the rear will wash out and you'll low side. Chop the throttle too quickly and it will snap back in line and high side you.

Practice sliding a dirtbike and you'll see what I mean... Though, it's not really something you can practice for on the street.

It started by braking and unweighting the rear tire. Watch closely and you will see the front squat.

As for the save, back on the gas lightly by reflex, and standing up to weight the rear again. It is a common theme on Mulholland Drive!

I just re-watched the vid and didn't see his fingers on the brake (or the clutch).

The slide was throttle induced. There are hundreds of vids on the web of bikes doing the same thing at the same spot on that road.

He rolled on too much throttle on the exit and lost rear traction, putting him into a power slide. He then chopped the throttle a little too quickly and almost high sided when the rear end came back in line.

Well, at least he held on tight during the rodeo.

You are right, same effect though. I could see his wrist as he let up on the throttle.

Yes, more or less, ......................and he was lucky that the surface upon which the recovery happened was still slippery, allowing the rear re-gain traction gradually.

This guy was not as lucky:

Great photo sequence of exactly what happens during a highside... Glad the rider was okay.
