Yeah, fortunately it was around a turn. Frame sliders are not meant to take 60mph 100yard slides. but where it was on the ground it could have slid a good while longer before marring up the fairings. The ducati she took out was not so well off unfortunately, for being a panigale the factory sliders didn't do jack shyte, she ground down the clutch case/cover pretty good.

If you are scared then don't get on the bike because you won't enjoy riding with fear as your passenger...
