Yup, this struck me as The Lesson. I have lots of personal experience with the truth in that statement. Glad you made it out OK! I ride 99% solo and have scared myself a few times pretty badly, but always had at least survival gear with me.

I've ridden for almost 50 years now and the best advice I could ever give is use the right tool for the job. I LOVE my GS, but it's not a dirt bike. In its proper element, it's the best bike I've ever owned. Out of it's element, it's a big pig. I've owned 90's, 100's, 125's, 250's, 650's etc. and they all had their place and function. My next bike is going to be either a WR250R (or maybe the WR450), then we'll get into the real dirt!
