After 15 years of riding street bikes, I took my first slide across the blacktop Friday at 50-60 mph. Shouldn't have happened. I believe the overly soft front suspension was to blame for the front wheel washing out, because the bike was no where near it's limit.
Anyway....full gear (like always) I slid for about 40-50 feet, stood up, laughed, and kept riding. The recently installed frame slider saved the bike. The recently installed exhaust is history!
I shared a few pics below.
