D'oh! I just read your first post and got the details...sounds nasty. It should be noted that I had an experience with a particular triple a couple weeks ago that had me uneasy about it. At first I couldn't figure out what it was about it that had me so sketchy and I asked my buddies how they felt about it and none of us could figure it out. The approach just didn't feel right. After several run up attempts I got it figured out. My front forks were too soft which caused an uneven balance. This is something you really don't notice, it's not obvious and will sneak up on you and bite your butt (as you figured out also). I adjusted my compression clickers in 6 clicks and viola! All the difference in the world. The approach was cake as well as the launch and landing. So the moral of the story is, if you're not feeling right about something take the time to really investigate and figure it out, it just might save you an exit in an ambulance!
