I about dropped mine the first time out of my dirt/sand driveway. It took me about a week to figure out why the front wheel washed out. Then it hit me. Usually when I am in the dirt I have knobbies and a small brake. Now I have semi-streets and two large discs. Note to self - Stay off the front brake!. Now I hardly ever use it (in the dirt) and 70 mph runs on the gravel roads and stopping are no problem. Maybe this helps someone.
