    Depends on your technique, balls, and surface condition.

    I've seen pros "tucked" and then cross a ripple in the balcktop, ~bu-bye!

    Street riding you will probably bottom out on the pegs or body work before folding or seriously skipping the front.

    Unhappy Just Looked at my front tire

    But how much of a patch do I have? 1/2" 3/4" somewhere round there? Let's just say 3/4" patch for instance, now how much of that 3/4 do I need to stay on the bike, without a lowside? Lets say 1/2 of 3/4", at the very edge of the tire what if I only have, due to roundness, the 1/2 of 3/4" that I need..................Oh fuck this I just don't wanna fall again

    I think you're just having problems with the "balls" part of the equation.

    If you took a track day or racing school, you'd find that edge.
