Seriously...that is my worst fear too. I don't worry as much about wrecking because I've myself up bad on numerous occasions so my small brain tricks me into thinking I can handle it, but being run over is on another level of damage and it totally freaks me out.

I was leaned over pretty far, my boot started to drag a little, next thing I know the back end began to wiggle and fishtail. I immediately let off the throttle and it straightened up on its own. I wasn't able to get it leaned back over. I had to go into the opposite lane before it sorted itself out.

The last 1/4 inch of chicken strips are now gone. Maybe I hit the strips and lost grip.
