The only one you have control over is the one I bolded. It can be very hard to tamp down instinct and act properly when things get hairy. Years back, I was traveling at a bit over the speed limit on Rte 201, and a trooper came up behind me at a high rate of speed. I pulled into the breakdown lane to get out of his way and was braking as I crossed the paint - and the paint was *just* slippery enough to let the back wheel lock up at ~60 mph. OK, feather the front brake to scrub speed until the fishtailing subsides, get down to a safe speed and release the rear brake. A novice would have panicked at the lock-up and let off the rear brake, only to end up as a red smudge on the pavement.
