Both. What i write is what i learned and experience both on road and track, at my level of course, if you go to the Californian S-B school in the UK (the closest thing to Robert's schools) you will learn some of this stuff and more and yet the instructors if they are way faster than most of us never won a world titile, doest it matter?
@CHRainmaker. McCoy was one of the most spectacular but not the "greatest" at sliding bikes, he still managed to win one didn't he?
You understand what you see, fine. But Doohan during his title winning years, was never so much sideway and still sliding it from braking, to corner entry already on the gas, transitioning from one to the other thanks to its thumb-operated rear brake then sliding it more on the gas.
Raineys was perhaps the best at sliding Yamaha bikes but he was rarely as much sideway as McCoy either, Marquez is already talking about improving by being more precise and you can be sure that next year his phase transitions will be smoother than in 2013.
Sliding doesn't simply imply getting sideway by the highest degree as possible, it's controling the rear wheel traction which matters and it depends on track surfaces, corners, tyres.
On acceleration the goal is to pass as much power as possible as early as possible, then recover the traction when the bike is ready to (even if you have to change body position or bike angle for that like Pedrosa does) not spit you over the handlebars.
To finish please stop with this "your theory" thing, read Roberts and other interviews because what i have learned i get it from people like them, so it's THEIR thories not mine.
I didn't invent modern suspention and was just explained how they worked during M-C mechanic course, then explained how to use them by some of these guys, talking to some or by diverse other ways and channels then trying it out by myself.
btw i just realised i gave K.R credit for one world title that belonged to Giacomo Agostini as manager of the Marlboro Yamaha team in 1988, Robert was managing the Lucky Strike team with Randy Mamola, so it's not 6 titles as a manager but 5.
While you are at it try to get your hands on this movie (The unridables 500 Grans Prix), it will tell you a lot about it all, if you have a good sense of observation and are into bikes instead of p!ssing contests like some, in passing, i appreciate you being putting your arguments down politely, thanks.
