Scrapin's no fun for me... I've done it 2 or 3 times, mostly at low speeds but once while intentionally making a turn at a higher speed while leaning hard. The sudden friction of scraping, plus the lean angle, felt like I was about to be thrown from the bike. I stood her up and did a straightaway full stop like they taught in the MSF, and ran up on the curb a bit before stopping. Didn't fall but felt like I'd barely escaped a nasty one!
