If you ride dirt... learn to fall. The AT seems like a pretty big motorcycle to be picking up and fairly expensive to fix up. Just guessing cause I haven't ridden one (going to get mine tomorrow). If I was king-o-the-world everyone would spend time on a dirtbike just to learn how to deal with things when motorcycles don't play right. Most folks agree that being a motorcyclist will make you a better auto driver. I believe riding dirt will make anyone a better motorcyclist. I'm also pretty sure the AT is not the best platform for learning to ride dirt.

Drop the bike like me! In the mud with your cases on. I did a legitimate slide out in the mud and no damage what so ever. Still, SW Motech crash bars on the way. I have a feeling that replacement plastics will take months to get here.

I ended up dropping it five times over 5000 miles off road in the last month.

Not a bad ratio I suppose?
