I did see the bad part coming up and might have gassed it or got over to the right though.

It looks like you were going fast enough to be stable, its rare I ever fell at that speed in sand, most of my falls were at lower speeds when you had to slow down for whoops or a tree or something in the trail.

Fun and easy at speed, till you have to slow down!
I think the fastest dirt crash of my riding carrer was in the beech sand by the dunes in NC with a worn 606 on a DRZ400S.

Full throttle pinned and leaning back the bike just started slowing down because the sand got to soft and then the front fell of plane and started digging in and tank slapped me into oblivion.

Happened in either 3rd or 4th pinned.

Luckily it didn't hurt at all because the sand was so soft, but I had sand in everything. That's what I get for watching dust to glory to many times and thinking I was JC and my drz was an xr650r.
