I always take about three laps to get up to pace whether it be on slicks / warmers, or DOTs' anyway. If you run slicks without warmers you will most likely experience cold-tearing at some point.
What tires are those? I see Diablo and SC1, but they don't look like supercorsas (no water tread)

Why did your moment happen? Too much rear brake?

Yes. I need to adjust to two fingers on the front brake to engage it more. Been using index finger only.. any other tips?

Here's my tip for you @riteonjon - imagine you don't have a rear brake and never hold in your clutch like you did. You need to make every shift immediate and use the engine to break, then use front, then use rear - in that order. Your rear wheel slipped because you were holding in your clutch, free wheelin, then applied rear brake. All wrong. Glad you saved it!

Is this the method the pros use to back it in?

Thatís some knowledge you just dropped on me. I probably freaked out and held in the clutch while rear braking. Good observation. Iíll keep that order in mind.

Method, no. It's mechanical. What you see in WSBK or MotoGP, when the rider is approaching a turn really fast and the rear wheel slides from side to side just before entering the turn... that's what I think you're talking about... is from down shifting at very high revs and the motor essentially can't keep up, thus making the rear tire slow down really quickly and lose traction. The slipper clutch lessens the blow during that transition. Without a slipper clutch and you're SOL.
