Just wondering if he'd lowered the tire pressure (from street) for the ride.

I'd dropped it to 28 front and rear, and it had been hooking up well all weekend, particularly I was impressed with how well they were powering up the looser hills. But in the end I just overdrove the traction I had available. If I had more I probably would have done the same.

You overcooked in a good place. I overcooked in a bad place but got extremely lucky.

Not to highjack your thread too badly, but I posted here when I rode my bike off the side of a gravel road some years back. Couldn't help but share the link. http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....11&postcount=3

Love it when crash bars do their thing and you can ride away after the bike takes a nap on the side of the road. Good to have the things you need to fix what needs fixing, too.

The bike didn't look as familiar on its side or in the closeups, but once it was in the picture with the rider behind, I recognized it (which, btw, makes for a strange experience browsing Faceplant). Glad you're OK!
