so a low side would just be laying it down and sliding. and a highside would be if it were to do any kind of a tumble?

A low side occurs when the front wheel slides out during a turn.

A high side occurs when the rear wheel slides, then catches, causing the bike to straighten up with dramatic force, flicking the rider over the bars, like a bucking bull.

Both falls can result in tumbling, but a low side is generally a "softer" fall.

I wonder how many bones he broke on that highside. At least his forearm, that shit was bending in every direction.

That ZZR-250 is looking more and more appealing everyday. ;)
