Having said that the main solution to all your ills in the rough stuff is to do just the opposite, keep focused on where you`re going a long way out, keep her spinning up and point her in the right direction. She will take care of the rest

She's a beast to get used to in slow stuff, but have faith in the chassis & she'll amaze you what she can do. There were a few moments when I was new to her I thought I was in trouble but I just kept her pointed where I wanted to go and she had no problems... once you get used to the bikes performance envelope & abilities you'll understand why the Orange Koolaid is so tasty for us!
