at the start of a ride home tongiht, i went around a tightish roundabout in 1st gear and the rear tyre lost all grip, during the last 1/3 of the turn, just before i was going to exit. the tyre had so little grip, it wasnt too worrying- luckily. i'm pretty sure it was just my fault for leaning a bit too far and using 1st gear, whilst tyres were cold, rather than a dirty surface, as the front tyre had no issues. i put my foot down a bit as it happened, but didnt back off the throttle and it straightened up well. i think i was lucky that the tyre slipped 'easily' and also have a dirt bike background, so the sensation wasn't foreign. jsu thought i'd share.
