I've only been down off-road. That was on my RM250...I made a crucial mistake, I was riding hard through some gravel roads surrounded by forest, and took a wrong turn, but I didn't realize it at the time.
So, the next turn that appeared, I was in a full sideways drift through a turn I thought I had seen many times before, when the radius of the turn decreased VERY sharply. I basically stood it up and hammered the brakes very hard(I was heading for many BIG trees, plus I was more inexperienced back then) and the front locked up and threw me off.
Happily, I had full body armor on, and dirt bikes are designed for falling so no damage there either. I managed to escape unscathed....
I almost went down a few months ago on the 600RR...I had JUST changed the tyres, hence they were extremely slippery and it JUST had started raining. Coming through a corner, i applied a bit of gas, when the rear came out very, very wide. Due to(possibly?) my dirt background, I was able to control the slide and straighten her, and was on my way....
