Yeah. The front tyre sliding in a corner, causing you to hit the deck. There's a simple reason why that happens; taking the corner too fast for the conditions.

Of course, it's not always easy to judge the conditions. Dust, temperature..

I take a corner fast, i've been down on it once. These days i ride a longer bike, far more of my weight is on the front axle, i can get away with higher speeds than i used to. But still it really depends on the conditions. If it's been windy, dust can accumulate differently.
Don't assume a corner is as it looks or as you know it.
