Have you re-sprung and re-valved your suspension? That goes a long way in preventing your issue.

Generally speaking, yes. Get your spring rates right first. The 950 Adventures are notoriously undersprung if used for anything more than a Starbucks run. Adjust damping to suit.

When you tip over at maybe 10mph on a dirt road and the bike is big enough to OBLITERATE your tib/fib.

Damn I thought I was the only one with this problem, I added a side of 4 metatarsuals for a total of 7 breaks. but even the 40 mile ride to the nearest ER was fun.
