You will find a big single has a rather high stall speed which when you are riding offroad and manuvering some obstacle and forgetting to keep your RPM up will cause your bike to suddenly stop and fall over....
Did it several times myself If you get down around 2k rpm, slide the clutch as needed...or go faster...
