That was quite the adventure! (Glad you are okay.) But crashing IS part of the off-road game. It's a contact sport. In this case it would have been better to have "crashed" as in stopping on the trail and tipping over standing still after the bike got directionally skewed, rather than keep riding it out and as a result go over a cliff. You can't always save it, on a bigger bike that is also heavily loaded with baggage. My bare 990 probably weighs in a similar range to your loaded 650. If a low-speed maneuver doesn't go as planned I hardly ever can save it and mostly don't even try. That slow, I'll just dump it right there and then my buddies can help me pick it up rather than to have to find me down a cliff!. Ah well, hindsight is easy. And again, glad you are okay.
