I had on the bt 016'S TIRES and i think the dust didnt help with the slick ends of the tires also whcih lead to the bike slipping easier. I used to ride the pilot powers

What slick ends of the tires. The sides are soft. I dont think they make a gravel resistant tire.

I still don't really get what happened you suddenly thought a turn was going to be trouble but you don't understand why and you kinda lost control nut you didn't and lost the back end can mean about 583 different things and since I don't know how it was saved or what wrong there's no way to learn anything from this incident obviously aside from not wearing shoes but nothing can be learned at all from this episode was msf taken or is it an option cuz this makes no sense but thanks for not dieing I guess lbbqrofbff.

Im glad you both(all three w the bike ) are ok.

Be honest, was this a first pucker moment of this type? Obviously you learned from it which is all you can ask from experience. And you are right, you never know what's going to be on a road so always pay attention.

You should add more preload to the rear shock real quick when putting a passenger on. Takes less than 5 seconds. Makes a world of difference.

At 6'5" you are most likely kind of heavy. Not too sure about your GF. With both of you on the bike, and your GF's weight being multiplied by the leverage of the subframe, you may have had the rear suspension bottomed out. Getting on the gas causes a lot of the weight to transfer to the rear and it squats even more.
