same here, I had a double take when I read that you "came down on your side".
I was not ready for that. I thought you'd say your belt snapped or something like that.
I felt so bad for you, especially you were innocently trying to impress with the zero's awesome torque.
I had it (2017 DSR) step out on me 4-5 time now. Once kind of hard so I even felt it in my hip from my reflex recovery move of my body with the leg out.
Although I am used to the rear (provoked) coming out on my ZRX-1200 (120 hp on the rear) which ends in a nice long slide, I must admit that, the weight distribution of the DSR feels slightly different (frame size vs. total weight) in a way that I am going to wait a bit until my tires are less grippy to push the friction threshold any more than getting a micro slide.
I am impressed how you seem to have taken it.
@MichaelJohn, I hear you, but I sincerely hope they don't add any rider aids.
One of the reasons why I love riding so much is that you still have to take it upon you and deal with the forces of physics without a computer automating your ride.
That's just my humble preference.
Duskfire, am glad you're ok (sort off).
