I've heard this term a few times: "I had to low-side it to avoid supermanning it over the car" or words to that effect.
What I don't get is (and maybe I'm just not experienced/good enough, although I did take the bc safety council course around 10 years ago) how fast do you have to be going to:
1. realize someone just cut in front of you
2. start braking and realize that you don't have enough room
3. think to yourself, "I don't have enough room to stop/avoid this, I better lay it down"
4. lay it down.
I just don't see it. Is "I low sided it to...." just a euphimism for 'too much right hand, oops' or 'braked like hell than sort of turned away and lost it'? Or can you guys really think and act that fast? or are you just simply fucking hauling ass in order to have that much time to think about it while you scramble to avoid it. Personally if it were ever to happen to me I figure I'd grab a hand-full of brake, and then a split second later 'whap!'. anything else and you'd have time to just stop or slow down enough to avoid, no?
