High-side is when the bike regains lost traction and forcibly ejects you from itself into orbit....

If you ever have a crash, go for the low-side. Pray for the low-side. Anything for the low-side. DON'T do a high-side.

On my cbr125r when the taxi u-turned into me, I went flying thru my windscreen. I think that is a high side.
