Don't dab!

By force of habit I dabbed with my left foot as I was getting a little front end slide

Save the bike but tore ACL MCL and PCL

If it goes doesn't save it

She is a torque monster and will go thru alot rather easily

Keep the tire pressure as low as you can - I use 22 up front and 25 in the back

Plan ahead as the bike has a lot of momentum

If you got ABS shut it off

And good for you!
