This is a technique question: In a baaad sitcheeayshunn, what do most of you do: try and ride it out, or throw it away and hit the dirt? My race car training has it ingrained in my brain to "drive off under control rather than spin off out of control" (vehicles tend to flip - that's bad) But twice now I have been poorly served by this thinking. MX tracks apparently don't spend much time grooming the surrounding real estate and I am still sore (only, luckily ) from my latest such event. Next time I plan to slide 'er down and let my brand new (well, not so new anymore) vented pants take the abuse . Any opinions?
