1 wait for tires to warm up... 2 how sharp is this corner because unless your trying to knee drag or something even with you tires cold you shouldn't of gone down..unless you were at some retarded speed in which you had to lean that much and what kind of bike is this

Yeah I think it's both me trying to get my knee down and gravel that I didn't see. I just know I was stupid and lesson learned. Good thing my frame slider took the hit saved me from a lot of headaches

The only story I have is definitely make sure you're at the right speed/gear before turning. I had to downshift in a corner, didn't blip the throttle, locked the rear wheel and almost lowsided.

Still getting used to what speed I can take corners at and often misjudge too slow (which is a good thing!), yet judged this one too fast.

yep frame sliders are good for the super slow drops or let downs other than that..anything higher speed they pretty much not gonna do that much..but if you go down when your going that fast chances are you probably won't get back up any way haha
