CruisnGrrl, you may well be right, it may have been too much front brake, it happened on a downhill stretch that got steeper all of a sudden.
Will try to find a skills class or coach-- anybody know of such here in Washington?
Checking out tire options. The number of choices is mind boggling. My last bike was an 83 yamaha Vision with 18s front and rear, only a few fitments available.
I can see that the TKC 80 would be a lot better in gravel and dirt but not so sure I want to go that far in the onroad offroad ratio.
Maybe the TKC 70? Metzeler Tourance? Avon Distanzia?
Could I do better by running something different on the front with the Trail wing rear, which has a lot of tread depth left? The front is definitely ready to replace
