When your front tire loses traction and it causes the handle bars to jerk back and forth. It looks like they are bouncing off the gas tank.

Done it once, almost wiped, my left foot bounced up, and hit the top of the seat, and my right foot got wedged under my rear brake lever. When I stopped, this kid riding his bike (pedal powered), throws his hand up in the air, (like wtf), and I almost blow chunks in my helmet. So god, I think I'd rather fall, or have it never happen again.

Death Wobble, although a bit less accurate is much more realistic.

Agreed... It might be the scariest thing I've ever experienced. Given it was at 100mph and I totaled my bike.
